Hello All,

We want to first ask for your prayers and good wishes for the Herrle family. If you know local, you know that they have a family farm that grows awesome corn among other produce and sell it daily in their farm store that is set to reopen sometime in June. On Thursday afternoon, 13 year old Lydia was very badly hurt while getting off the school bus in front of the family farm. We wish her and the whole Herrle family strength in her recovery.

From Maryrose:
There have been many stories in the news about tree fruit this year (including In addition to the tree fruit, one farmer (Lena Horst) has confirmed that her strawberry plants are not doing well. They have plenty of flowers but they are black instead of yellow in the middle. Rachael made a call to Paul Bowman to see how his berries were doing. He covered his plants with straw when he heard of the frost and his berries will be fine! Yay!! This means we will have local organic strawberries in the next month. I am down to my last bag or so in the freezer. Apple Creek has confirmed they have lost upwards of 75% of their coming apple crop. Mary was happy she canned last years applesauce so that it is shelf stable. This means those that do not have freezer space can now buy her lovely sauce to enjoy any time. Check it out in the 'preserves' section under 'pantry'!

Check out Traditional Foods new meat boxes just in time for the BBQ season. Nutrient dense and GMO free, their products are packed with nutrition. Also check out a brand new product: Frozen Quiche made from Traditional Foods eggs (in the 'prepared' section). Also available with a 'Gluten free' crust (though not from a dedicated GF facility).
