Happy Mother’s Day! Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Middle Tennessee and we pray that your blessings flow abundantly!
There are LOTS of new offerings this week!!
First up MILK and BUTTER! I did shout that because it is exciting! Michael from Frontier Family Farm works tirelessly with the Mennonites in his Altamont Community home. They are offering raw, pet cow milk in 1/2 gallon jars. These are grass fed, hormone free, but fed grain treat during milking. 1/2 gallon. if you do not have a jar then there is a $4 jar deposit. Also butter!
Michael will be set up at market each week, through the summer, to help us with deposits, jar exchanges and selling his extra, incredible produce! We thank him so very much for doing this for us!
Simmer and John of Short Mountain Cultures are also to be hugged and thanked for bringing us the offerings from Wise Butter and Nature’s Cornerstone Thanks to all for trying out some of these incredible treats and healthy options. This week, they have added water kefir in 2 different flavors! THE GRAPE IS INCREDIBLE! Ashleigh and I know the owner/maker of Nature’s Cornerstone and have loved his creations for a long time! Jason Provancha is a great local asset!
Botanical Harmony Farm is adding a spray deodorant with Magnesium, witch hazel and aloe! A must-have for summer and it WORKS!
They are also adding herbal bath salts in Energizing Citrus, Floral Lavender/Rose and Eucalyptus/Mint for sore muscles in a small 6 ounce size. Each containing locally grown and/or wild harvested herbs and flowers for an amazing spa bath experience. A blend of several salts including Dead Sea, Himalayan and more are included for the added health benefits they bring.
