Another, and even deeper freeze! This one seems to be a little disorientating as the weather of the last week has brought out the bees and taken the chickens to pasture scratching for the years first green signs. Just maybe, this one will bring balance to some of the bugs who were also beginning to percolate in their nests! The Lasater order was a great success and will be delivered on the 3rd of Feb. If you missed this order, please send a note of interest and I'll be sure to put you on a 'waiting list'. As soon as we have another 10 sampler orders plus any add on accumulated, I will place another order :)

Did you know?

When Columbus first arrived in the Americas, there were close to 300 varieties of corn being grown on the continent. Today, only 16 varieties of corn account for over 70% of the corn being grown in the United States. With the advent of genetically engineered corn, we are in danger of losing all genetic diversity, leaving the nations corn crop open to widespread destruction by a single fungus or disease.
