“The first online farmers market where you can order your food directly from your local farmer, have it harvested/prepared on order and receive it the next business day. You save time driving to the farmer’s market and you get better quality food with more character that is much fresher than in the supermarket. And it’s always 100% local.” Great idea. There were no farmers on this service in my zip code.
A variety of reusable household textile products made from high quality hemp fiber, including coffee and tea bags, drink sleeves, table linens, washcloths and bath products, garden gloves, hats, yarn and twine.
Single Origin, Farm Direct, Whole Leaf Teas. I happened to walk by this store in Berkeley, California and loved it immediately. It completely changed my ideas about tea. “We celebrate this time-honored craftsmanship of the artisanal tea farmers of China, Taiwan, India, and Japan. Every harvest for the past 15 years we have traveled to the finest tea growing regions of Asia to visit family-owned farms to select our handcrafted teas. Each tea in our collection is carefully curated for its complexity, exceptional taste, and spirit. We do this because we are committed to helping sustain these traditional communities and to sharing the treasures of the tea arts with you. And we truly believe that tea can change your life.” Their mission is “to seek out the most skilled tea farmers and producers in each region, and support their craft by bringing their teas to the Western world.” You can meet each farmer on their website. Teas are picked during the peak season and sold as fresh harvests. They even have a questionnaire to help you choose the perfect tea for you. I wish I could live next door.

“Founded in 1985, Zürsun Idaho Heirloom Beans is the original U.S. company to offer authentic heirloom beans and unusual legumes worldwide. The ultimate eco-friendly food, Zürsun heirloom beans are grown on small-scale farms in the Snake River Canyon region of south central Idaho known as the Magic Valley Growing Area. The area’s arid climate, rich, well-drained loamy soil, moderate temperatures and stable moisture level—internationally recognized as having ideal environmental conditions for bean growing—produce pure, distinctly ﬂavorful beans, superior to common store-bought beans.”
“Glorious, old fashioned heirloom beans… unique flavors and textures that you don’t find with bland commodity beans..My first harvested heirloom bean was Rio Zape. They were pretty and easy to grow but I had no idea what to expect when I cooked them. They were similar to the pintos I liked but there was so much more going on. Hints of chocolate and coffee mixed with an earthy texture made my head spin.”
A good selection of heirloom beans grown in California. “Beans are cleaned and polished before packing for highest gourmet quality.”
They were giving out free samples at my local community organic market and I couldn’t resist. And I’ve been eating it since. Here’s why. It tastes like chocolate. But there is no caffeine, just a bit of coconut sugar and a bit of Himalayan salt. I haven’t tried an actual pili nut yet, but I’m interested in the fact that they are a rich source of heart-healthy omegas, which play an important role in brain function, and they contain all 8 essential amino acids. This nut butter is a good introduction.
