3 Brands That Are Important To Me

Buy Fresh Buy LocalVERY LOCAL PRODUCE

Linvilla Orchards & Pete's Produce Farm

We enjoy buying from local farms when the local vegetables and fruits come into season. There are two surviving local farms in our immediate area which is a treat. Linvilla Orchards and Pete's Produce Farm. Linvilla is open year round with seasonal activities and produce from their farm and other areas when out of season. Pete's is open is open April to November but still has an honor stand in the winter for kale and eggs since they have chickens too. These farms will label the items that are harvested from their land and if not, the label will say where it was from. Most produce not from their land are from farms not too far away. There is nothing like local grown produce and it is so important to support the local farmers so they can survive.

 

USDA OrganicUSDA ORGANIC Label

If a product is organic, no matter what the brand I will go for that product. The key for me is that it has the USDA Organic logo on it and I am good with that. We are what we eat, and I want to eat things that are healthy for my body and one way to ensure that is to buy as many things that have this logo.

 

DanskoDANSKO Footwear

From the time I was in high school I have worn clogs. There is something about the ease of which one can slip them on and off that hit a cord with me all those years ago. Over the years I have tired many brands and have liked many brands, but I keep coming back to Dansko....It might be the fact that not too far from where I live is Dansko's headquarters, complete with an outlet!  

 

 

As a reflection on brands that I gravitate towards.....I know that I enjoy supporting local businesses, as local people support me in my work, I enjoy buying things that are healthy for me and the environment, and I enjoy walking through life with comfortable shoes and sandals on my feet!
