Microgreens may be tiny, but are so incredibly nutrient dense, they offer a wide variety of essential nutrients and health benefits. She's got some interesting micros, even some I've never seen like Basil microgreens! Check out her listings on the website https://suwanee.locallygrown.net/market/index/124085

LAST CALL! Group Buy - Maple Syrup, Very Dark (formerly Grade B) Unfiltered/Filtered
The International Maple Syrup Institute (IMSI) introduced a new set of grading rules to govern how maple syrup is labeled so there is no longer Grade B, It's now Grade A - Very Dark. We'll have Unfiltered and Filtered Maple Syrups, Infused Maple Syrup and Maple Mustard. This is a seasonal product and we only order once a year!
This is a pre-order and payment will be due at this week’s pick up or you can mail your check. Our order will take several weeks since Joseph is still tapping the trees. It will also arrive via freight so it takes longer than FedEx.
I will contact you as we get closer to a delivery date.

Build out Update
Update: Bathroom buildout started last Friday, 6/21 ! New website is almost done and I hope to launch in the next couple of weeks. I'll continue to keep you all posted and give everyone plenty of notice before we move. As of right now we are probably still a couple of months out depending on how fast permits will be issued...
