about range free

We'll make your favorite foods for you, with none of what you’re avoiding.

range free was created from a need for safe, allergy friendly food

Meet our owner, Anna Meyer.

Anna moved to Columbia in 2006 to attend the University of Missouri and completed her Masters in Art History in 2008. Over the next 8 years, Anna baked and decorated cakes professionally in local grocers. In 2009, after 2 years, 7 doctors, and one vengeful chili cheese dog, she was diagnosed with extensive food and environmental allergies. Allergic to seven of the Top Nine (all grains, yeast, many fruits, vegetables, chocolate, & spices) both cooking at home and dining out were a challenge, and commercial bakery positions became detrimental to her health.

In 2012 Anna began catering to the needs of allergen-free and specialty diets throughout Columbia. She has built a specialty baked goods following, all in need of a local eatery servicing their needs, but most importantly, understanding the needs of a specialty diet as no other establishment in Columbia can.

*Tree nuts are not used at range free. However, the FDA classifies coconut as a tree nut, although botanically it is not, and it is used in some of our products. Some of our gluten-free flours are processed in a facility that also processes nut flours. After nut processing, the machines are thoroughly cleaned, the first 30lbs of non-nut flours are disposed (donated), and the remaining product is tested. Please ask if you have any questions!
