We love discovering quality products, especially when they come from local, passionate, ethical and responsible farmers. Products like Cowella Yogurt, a new addition to our dairy coolers. Made in Jefferson, NY by a family in dairy farming for the past seven generations! You can taste the love in Cowbella yogurt.

The pronouncement by the NYS Dept of Health regarding the prohibition of recycled containers for the purchase of nut and seed butters set us back on our heels this January!

Deep River Snacks offers a wide variety of kettle cooked chips. They have eighteen delicious flavors, all non-gmo and gluten free!

The charities are picked based on their personal connection with an employee of the company. We love that!Read More

We asked Rachelle to share more with us about what she does, and a recipe for homemade dye. She kindly obliged.Read More
