From the lettuce and tomatoes in your salad to the peaches in your pie, you'll find produce grown literally "down on the farm."

We want to provide the best for our customers, which includes antibiotic and hormone free ground beef (used in our favorite meatloaf), as well as locally smoked and cured ham and pork chops.
