Well they are not really a secret.  This hidden gem (locate in Rossville) supplies vegetables to many of our local restaurants. Pete & I have been getting most of our vegetables and farm fresh eggs from them since August.  Here is a picture of one week of veggies: As I continue to educate myself in the area of nutrition, one thing that glaringly stands out is the importance of eating vegetables that are...
