GRASS FED COLLAGE/GELATIN GROUP BUY THIS WEEKEND

We order this every 2 months so keep this in mind when ordering. If you're unfamiliar with this product here's a great article that explains what it is and how to use it : https://wellnessmama.com/3058/collagen-hydrolysate/

My husband and I use collagen to help with joint issues and works great! Easy to use!

FCLO Group buy is this weekend! We will be taking pre-orders for Fermented Cod Liver Oils and other Green Pasture products. You can see all products in the Group Buy section of the market website.


As with all Group Buys, this item will NOT be available this Wednesday's pick up. I will be placing our order on Monday morning and due to shipping it will not arrive in time for this Wednesday pick up. I expect it to be available for pick up the following Wednesday. This is a prepaid pre-order and payment is expected this Wednesday.

Cultured Traditions Sale

Tanya wanted to send out an explanation of her current sale in case you had questions. Recently her walk in cooler had a malfunction and the temperature was so low that it froze some items. She didn't lose everything as she caught it in time before it everything froze but did lose a lot. Most of the frozen stuff broke - frozen content expanded and broke glass containers. What didn't break may or may not have been frozen is on sale. Some products may have gotten partially frozen. She doesn't believe the quality of surviving product as been affected much

as it is not uncommon to freeze fermented foods and the beneficial bacteria survives freezing very well. She wanted you to be aware of this and if you have any questions please contact her at Tanya@culturedtraditions.com All items are 25% off and organic soups are 15% off
