ALL ABOUT SALADS

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! 

Local Profile with 2nd Nature Honey

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.
