In the spring I plant a huge vegetable garden as nothing beats fresh produce! If I cannot grow it, I try and shop as local as possible. Hitting the farmers markets every Saturday or stopping past our local market - Turner's Farmers Market (located just north of Ingersoll on Hwy #2.)
In most of my cooking, I do use whole milk straight from the cow. Being a farmer's wife does give me advantages. This fall, I made my own butter andI am in the process of learning how to make cheese. The simple life is really what I am all about. Making my own breads, cheeses, butter, growing my own beef, and chickens. I know what I put into them, so I know what I am getting out.
In this section, I will be posting great little spots to shop as well if there are any sales or coupons!
