Two New Producers Join the West Michigan Co-Op

Just in time for the November shopping cycle Shady Side Farm and Salt of the Earth have joined the Co-Op as our two newest producers.

Shady Side Farm has been farming full time for 15 years now and their crops are certified organic through the Global Organic Alliance. This month they have a variety of beans available for sale as well as jams and wool socks, which would make awesome gifts for the holidays.

Salt of the Earth is a rustic American eatery and bakery in Fennville, Michigan and they produce a full line of non-GMO breads. When baking their bread he dough is turned and shaped by hand, then set in our wood fired oven and baked to a rich brown, to impart more complexity in the final flavor and a rustic texture & appearance. This month at the co-op try their Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Bread, Bacon Bread or Seedy Salt Bread.

And don't forget, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and this is your last chance to stock up on delicious, local products for your Thanksgiving dinner.
