After months of winter root vegetables, spring is a time to indulge in delicate, and fresh produce. Building menus around seasonal produce is a healthy way to support your body and local agriculture. Our store is bursting with a new assortment of colors and shapes. From salads, radish, chive to super kale, green onions and more, we are on a mission to help you add a healthy punch to your plate during Spring 2019.
WHY WE LOVE AMISH FARMERS
The Amish are known as some of the best farmers in the world.
The discipline, hard work, respect and love of the soil are qualities that are synonymous to the Amish culture and traditions. Moreover, life on a farm coincides with their religious beliefs and traditions.
To the Amish toiling with the soil, raising livestock, and growing their food is seen as cooperating with God's will. Communing with nature is a form of communing with God. To the Amish, farming is a sacred lifestyle dictated by the Scriptures.
Furthermore, the Amish are firm believers of hard work, responsibility, simple living, and cooperation among the communities.
We love Amish farmers for their dedication and sharing real healthy food with us. We also admire them for their strong sense of community.
"The more knowledge you have about the food you eat and feed your family, the more powerful your choice can be."
Our mission is to help you make the best choice simple and promote healthy eating in your community by sourcing and bringing real healthy food from people who love farming, respect soil, and their livestock.
Our policy is to deliver clean food from local farms to our stores within 12 hours to assure freshness and offer only the best food available. We source GMO-free, natural food free of pesticides, and other chemicals.
We currently support fifty small Amish farms located in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana. Last year we built three greenhouses in Amish community located in Michigan to be able to offer spring vegetables as early as possible. We also developed a small storage facility in Wisconsin in 2018 where we store vegetables during winter. During warmer seasons, as the stored food is no longer there, the building serves as a cooler for food that awaits our delivery truck.
We also support local artisans including butchers and bread makers as we believe in small batching, quality craftsmanship and the incredible power of passion.
