Matt D’Amour’s Yumbutter venture continues to grow

Matt D’Amour ’00 and business partner Adrian Reif launched the Yumbutter brand from farmers’ markets to grocery stores in 2011. Their company, located in Madison,  recently merged with two others: RP’s Pasta Company, owned by Peter Robertson of Madison, and Ona Treats of Colorado. The umbrella company is Tribe 9.

Matt said the reason for the merger was to “leverage our resources on all fronts: human resources, financial resources, manufacturing resources, distribution resources.” He also notes that the primary thing Yumbutter brings to the newly formed Tribe 9 is marketing prowess. “We shine at being able to express, create and inspire people with an amazing story. We bring the innovation in terms of pushing the envelope with the sustainability aspect, and making sure we can infuse Tribe 9 with that as well.”

An entrepreneur at heart, Matt started out helping his parents with their business, then formed a landscaping company with college friends, and then founded his own holistic health practiced titled “Inside Out Wellness” after that. He continues his interest in natural, locally sourced foods and wellness at Yumbutter, where Matt’s title is Chief Wellness Carrier.

Crusaders—Show Your Support for Home Games!


Edgewood High School is working in partnership with Dudgeon-Monroe and Vilas neighborhoods in order to install lights and a sound system, with expanded seating and additional space for storage and concessions underneath. The improvements would be made to the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Athletic Complex, Edgewood’s on-campus field and track that were redone with state-of-the-art astroturf and running surfaces a year ago.

While a limited number of sports are currently played on the field, having the enhancements would make it possible for Edgewood to host its own home football games instead of having to travel to Otto Breitenbach Field at Middleton High School.

Show your support! Visit edgewoodathleticcomplex.org. 

Let us know what participation in high school sports has meant for you and your family.
