Gifts you'll feel good about giving

December marks the beginning of all good things citrus, and our friends at Fairview Orchards just announced that their organic mixed citrus box is ready. It's full of the best sweet, tart, colorful citrus -- you'll get Meyer and Eureka lemons, plus a mix of specialty fruits like oranges, tangerine and limes. Fairview Orchards hand picks, packs and ships your fruit within 24 hours of shipping it out.

Long-time LocalHarvest member Rancho Charanda Citrus Ranch also boasts a number of fun gift boxes, from their Valencia orange Juicy Juice Club to the Holiday Cuban Mojito Kit, all packaged in lovely craft boxes with decorative labels. These are great gifts for anyone who appreciates good food and a little sunshine in winter.

Last but not least, we diverge from the citrus world to Byrd's Pecans. Byrd's offers fresh pecans which, if you don't eat all of them plain, make wonderful holiday snacks or gifts for friends. There are so many flavorful options for seasoning pecans, but we especially like classic cinnamon candied pecans and savory spiced pecans (they make a great addition to winter salads too!).

Enjoy!

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." - Edith Sitwell

As the cold has swept in and the leaves began to fall, we knew that the time would come quickly for field trips to come to an end. It's always a pleasure, and we count it a blessing to reach thousands of children and connect them back to the beauty of nature. Educators, we thank you for allowing us to serve you. We hope to see you again very soon!

Alegre Farm staff came together to celebrate and were in for a treat. They were able to enjoy delicious food and desserts. Then Pilar gave everyone a wonderful surprise by inviting Kara of KZ Skin+Body to teach the benefits of different herbs before they were able to pick and choose their tea blends. And they each were given an Edlerberry Syrup on Steroids. Thanks Pilar!
Angie, their sweet Education Director, brought everyone a great smelling gift, too. They loved the peppermint mist that is so fitting for the season! It was a great time and everyone is looking forward to work together again in 2019!

Should You Have Elderberry Stocked Through Flu Season?

Studies show that taking elderberry syrup contributes to overcoming the flu faster and reducing symptoms.

Did you know elderberry has been used in holistic medicine for many years and had been used to treat the plague?

No one wants to get the flu, but what if you could recover quicker naturally?
A clinical study showed that at 48 hours of treatment, nearly 90% consuming elderberry syrup were either symptom free or had mild symptoms.
Another clinical study showed that flu symptoms were relieved 4 days earlier by those taking elderberry than those taking a placebo.

So what will you use to combat the flu this season?
