Organic Heirloom Potatoes. Buy them right here!

Our organic heirloom potatoes come from small-scale family farms in rural southwestern Wisconsin. This is known as the “driftless” area of Wisconsin, because glaciers drifted around this area during the glacial period. This resulted in a unique geographical area of rolling hills and valleys that the early settlers of Wisconsin recognized as having rich soil for grass and crops.

The four seasons and harsh winters allow for the natural death of organic plant life that returns nutrient rich organic matter to the soil each year.

We are currently offering three types of organic potatoes: Organic Heirloom Fingerling Potatoes, Organic Heirloom Sweet Potatoes, and Organic Heirloom German Butterball Potatoes

Raw Brown Whole Flax Seeds. Buy them here!

Our brown flax seeds are completely raw and unprocessed. They were grown in Italy and are traceable back to the farm that raised them. The farm is certified organic and a sample of the seeds were lab tested for the presence of glyphosate and none was found.

Learn more about the unique nutritional qualities of flax seeds here.

Flax seeds can be enjoyed in a number of ways from raw, soaked, sprouted, boiled or ground and can be treated as you would other seeds or nuts. However, flax seed must be finely cut into a meal to get maximum benefits of the OMEGA-3 oil and dietary fiber. We recommend that you buy a coffee grinder and dedicate its use to grinding flax seeds. Once ground, the flax seeds should be consumed quickly, as the oil inside the seeds oxidizes rapidly.

The recommended daily amount of flax seeds to eat is about 1–2 Tbsp. The most beneficial amount for maximum nutritional value of ground flax seed is 2 tablespoons daily. It can be mixed into 10–12 oz. of juice or water. Make sure you use plenty of water when adding flax seed to your diet.

Ground flax seed can easily be added on top of dishes including: baked products, stir-fry dishes, soup or stews, cereal and yogurt.

Flax seed is 35–40% oil so a similar amount may be omitted from any recipe requiring oil that also includes ground flax seed. Similarly, about 1 Tbsp. of ground flax seed steeped in 3 Tbsp. of water for 2-3 minutes will substitute for one egg in recipes. Flax seed contains NO GLUTEN for those with gluten allergy.
