What does Organic Really Mean?



Balance in Nature! As human beings, we are directly connected to the environment and with our choices we impact our own surroundings. Every time we eat, we have choices. Make it count and preserve our planet! 

Choosing organic (which is always non GMO, hormone, pesticide and antibiotic free) it's pretty much guaranteed you're also going to consume alot more nutrients than non organic foods. This leads to improvements of all types for our bodies including cognitive development and in vitro development!

It also means ethical treatment of animals and food systems that can develop locally so that food produced locally is also consumed locally. What a concept!

Think about it " Every time you purchase confinement-factory farm meats from a conventional grocery store, you are voting for that system to continue. If you don't believe in that system, don't vote for it" - Tim Hoven, Eckville, Alberta

Support grocery stores that carry local products!

Glorious Garlic

Superfood (in raw form)...Aphrodisiac...Natural Antibiotic...Tasty as it gets...this is why we love garlic!

Everyone should consider growing garlic in their gardens this and every year. Although you often see 3 bulbs for less than $1, we don't advise that sort of garlic over local organic garlic, or your own home grown! Yes it's pungent, it makes your hands smell but oh the benefits far outweigh any worry of bad breath. It adds so much depth to its dishes!

It's used around the world in thousands of dishes and comes in a multitude of varieties.  We love Purple Striped and 'Music' an Ontario variety considered a hardnecked vs softnecked. 

In both world wars garlic was given to soldiers to help fend off gangrene. It wards off food poisoning, helps our hearts by relaxing blood vessels allowing blood to pass more easily, known to decrease risk of various cancers and can help prevent the common cold. Need we say more?!?
