Your Farmers !!


Dear Folks,

Remember to get your orders in today by 4pm.

These are Your Farmers ! They are located down the road, around the bend, most likely closer than you think. And on this site especially, all the food is chemical free! And beyond!

Smart Chick is the only GMO free chicken in this fine state of ours. And it tastes great!
Crescent Moon has Kefir, which is like yogurt only better! High in pro-biotics and very good for our gut. And it tastes really good.

These are just a few reasons to remember to order. The biggest one being HEALTHY! Eating chemical free CLEAN food just harvested , by your local farmer, well nothing is better than that (unless you grow it yourself)!

Start by taking a portion you would spend at a big chain grocery store and buy from your farmers first. It takes a little getting used to, but in the end, very satisfying.

Good Eating,
Marantha
