This Saturday we will have along a small assortment of our heirloom, certified organic beans. Due to spring and fall weather conditions beyond our control, our bean harvest was very poor this year. We will not be selling any heirlooms in bulk quantities and the price is a little higher than normal.  Thanks for understanding. We will also have corn meal and grits/polenta along to market. And we will have wool socks, wool mittens and wool hats available—great for gift-giving or just to keep you warm!

Will have a fresh batch of Cacao Kava a relaxing hot coco blend, Breast Butter a lymphatic self massage balm, and maybe a few live aloe plants.
