Caley's Kitchen Garden is a small family farm located in Buford,GA in the Hamilton Mill area. Their property is only 1 of 2 properties still zoned agricultural in that area! They have a variety of seasonal produce growing but their catnip, wheat grass and microgreens are ready for harvest. They will list more produce items as they become available. All fruits and vegetables grown on the farm meet our strict standards and are grown without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Wheatgrass is high in antioxidants and nutrients. It contains iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A (as beta-carotene), vitamin C and vitamin E. It is considered a "medicinal superfood", and there are many proposed health benefits with regular consumption. In fact, the list of health conditions it supposedly treats is lengthy and includes anemia, diabetes, tooth decay, high blood pressure, digestion problems, high cholesterol, bladder infections, kidney stones, common colds, bronchitis, fever, sore throat, gout, wound healing, liver disorders, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, skin conditions, and even cancer. You can juice the wheat grass and drink straight up or add to your favorite smoothie recipe. Can also be chopped up and added to salads or soups.
Microgreens are packed full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Can be used in any salad, a topping for tacos, perfect to dress up appetizers and great with your favorite grilled fish.
My Daily Bread is on the Market this week! My Daily Bread usually lists their items every other week but they switched a few things around and can deliver this week. Yay! They also have some new items on the market- Gluten Free Banana Walnut Muffins, Organic Banana Chips, and Mini Pumpkin Spice Bread.
Lizzie's Pantry has added Organic Buckwheat and Organic Quinoa to the market. They also have their 5 Gallon Plastic Bucket w/E-Z Open Lid and Gamma Lids ON SALE this week!
Southern Essentials finally has more of their popular Lavender with Activated Charcoal soap back on the market. Charcoal and soap-are two words that don't really seem to go together. Activated charcoal(a specially processed form of carbon) draws impurities and toxins out of the skin, helping to relieve acne and other skin problems. Fragrance Free Activated Charcoal soap is also available.
Buffalo Gal Grassfed Beauty has added EYEREVIVE – Herbal Tallow Eye Treatment. The skin around our eyes can lose its elasticity and collagen more easily than other areas of the face. That's why we usually see the effects of aging or dietary and environmental stressors around our eyes first. The skin is thinner and more prone to damage. Therefore, it is beneficial to use a product that supports collagen production and helps this skin stay hydrated and smooth, thus reducing dark shadows, puffing, sagging, and the appearance of fine lines. * We created EYEREVIVE, something absolutely UNIQUE to the skincare market, to seriously nourish and support the skin around the eyes so that it maintains its thickness and generates more collagen! AND we use only real, whole food based ingredients — THEBEST WE CANFIND! No botanical oils are used in this formulation, the only plants are from herbs and essential oils.
