Fourth & Heart is an artisanal food brand based in Los Angeles, CA, set on a mission to modernize ancient pantry food staples starting with a line of grass-fed flavored pure spreadable butters known as “ghee”.
Fourth & Heart is an ode to the Heart Chakra. It’s the intersection where most of us get stuck. We think through everything and we rarely feel our way through it. Our intellect gets in the way. I find the most lasting decisions are heart choices and not hard choices.
Fourth & Heart hopes to inspire others through the passion we put into our product and to inspire “heart” decisions, not hard decisions.
We move forward with bold intention, and with your hearts and our hearts in mind. We want what we put into our product to move you, motivate you, inspire you.
