Right now is the perfect time to enjoy a crisp, cool, refreshing salad. We love making salads with the fresh, organic produce from our local vendors. Whether it's a salad from our grab'n'go, salad bar, or a salad made at home, we've highlighted some of our favorites!
We take pride in open lines of communication with our owners and customers. Here is what you had to say for the month of February!
I am a beekeeper, but the truth is that beekeeping did not come naturally. When someone gifted me with a hive about seven years ago, I spent the first year being terrified every time I opened it. Honey bees pick up very quickly on a beekeeper's fear, so I knew I had to get over it.
When I started talking to my bees, I started to relax. Then I started to listen. They were talking back through their buzzing. Over the course of many conversations, my bees wrapped their tiny legs around my heart. Today I talk to them every chance I get.
All month long our deli will be featuring their housemade scones.
What's better than a warm, made-from-scratch scone on a cold and snowy day?
With Board Chair, Todd Sweet
Thank You, Eunice

“Some side with the leaves. Some side with the seeds” - Jeff Tweedy
I side with the seeds. How about you? Well, actually I side with leaves and the seeds but when it comes to “Moving Beyond the Fork” and public policy this spring I am siding with the seeds.
