August 2nd through 8th is the 16th annual Farmers’ Market Week
“Farmers Markets benefit communities by offering healthy, wholesome food while local farmers and ranchers benefit from new ways to present their products to customers,” said USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack in Washington, DC.

Lisa Shirk, our Operations Manager for the last seven years shared this story with us:
I made it through baseball season-I didn’t have to sit in the car, I pretended the cottonwood was snow, and even laughed! Why does this matter? Last year, I suffered through these games, by the end of the season, my eyes were so swollen under my sunglasses that it hurt to be outside. I took herbs and pharmaceuticals, but at the height of the tree pollen season, my system had had enough, evidently. I don’t pretend to understand the mechanics of allergy elimination, but I feel the results. My throat was still slightly sore, but other than that?
I have to wonder how much more fun our children are going to be able to have through their lives. My son has already had several things tested and eliminated. He couldn’t breathe or play outside easily through spring for a couple of years before we finally gave this a try. Now he tells me when he thinks he needs to go to acupuncture, or when his body just needs some rest (perfect school attendance the last two years). How cool is that?
