Garden to table organic home cuisine.

Organic & Grass Fed

My garden is composed of all organic and heirloom variety plants. The few veggies, eggs and the meats I buy are organic, pasture raised and or grass fed. I feel this is the most ethical and nutritious choice for my family and the planet.

Non GMO

I DO NOT plant or buy anything genetically modified.
