Note from Azuki's Kitchen
Miki from Azuki's Kitchen is excited to list her holiday special breads again this year! She is thankful to those friends who sent her a reminder to ask for them again. She hopes you and your guests will enjoy them for this Thanksgiving Day.
Also, my Sourdough Pita no longer has soy in the ingredients! Now it's Soy Free and made with the organic olive oil instead. I hope you can enjoy this simply-made pita with your filling choices and bring to your Thanksgiving table! My pita bread will make the perfect vessel for your Thanksgiving leftovers - Turkey pita sandwich anyone?

What's going on with the Eggs?
Why do we have less eggs on the market?
- shorter days - less daylight = less eggs
- cold weather - hens' bodily resources go into keeping her warm rather than to producing eggs.
- Autumn is molting season - chickens will molt and grow new feathers and produce less eggs
We'll have a new farm on board in December that will bring us more eggs! We should be back to normal by February.
New Farm: Old Cotton Hill Farms
I am so happy to welcome Chez and Neah Maxwell of Old Cotton Hill Farms, in Pocataligo, Madison County, Georgia to our family of growers and producers! They raise heritage breeds Red Waddle Hogs and Freedom Ranger Chickens. They pasture raise the animals, allowing to forage and scratch as they please while supplementing them with a special order certified organic mixture containing no corn and no soy from Reedy Fork Organic Farm in Elon, NC.
