Fueling Your Summer Adventures

Summertime is here and we know that your social calendars are filling up with all of the vacations, outdoor adventures, and celebrations that come with the season. What do you have planned for your summer? It can be such a busy season of the year and you’ll need all of your energy to keep up with the variety of activities that you have planned. Make the most out of the long days and warmer weather by ensuring that you’re eating well.

We know that you will want to fuel your body right for all of the activities that you have planned with your family this season. Summer is one of our favorite times of the year because there are so many great fresh fruits and vegetables that are currently in season. It’s so easy to pick up local produce from your neighborhood grocery store, farmers market, or produce stand to take home and make into a delicious snack or meal.

We grow and harvest an abundance of fresh produce that you can greatly benefit from. Did you know that each one of the greens we grow on our farm are packed with nutrients that are essential to keeping you moving day in and day out? They can even help you fight fatigue!
