Bee Healthy– Farm Fresh Eggs and Protein Peptides…

A couple of winters ago The Farmer and I decided we had a need to supplement with Collagen. A large percent of our bodies are made up of collagen…hair, bones and joints, fingernails, connective tissue…and you hear the old line, “As we age…”

At that time I researched collagens…everyone and their brother had their own kind available! I settled on Ancient Nutrition Multi-Collagen Protein.

Why Ancient Nutrition? First, I respect the founders of the company: Dr. Josh Axe and Jordan Rubin (Garden of Life founder). Second, it has 5 types of food sourced collagen from Bovine hide collagen peptides, Eggshell membrane collagen, Fish collagen peptides, and Chicken Bone Broth protein. It easily dissolves in coffee or any other hot drink, or even cold drinks. You can also add it to your soups or other foods.

This week I got my first shipment into Bee Healthy! I went with the 1# container–if you are just starting you want to load with 2 scoops a day for at least the first 10 days. We added this to our diet, as well as home-made Bone Broth, Farm Fresh Eggs, and pasture raised Beef…noticed a difference!

I’m overstocked on eggs this week: $3.50/dozen or $3.15 each for two dozen or more…

Come and see us! Lots of plant based supplements, fresh potatoes and onions and other produce from Lloyd Craft Farms, cleaner personal care items, and good snackies, too. Full rack of gluten-free items, grains and flour alternatives…Xing Tea and GT Dave’s kombucha in the cooler, and Mocchi in the freezer…and much more. We finally got our stock up and now need to move it to prepare for the holidays!

Tomorrow, I’ll let you know about the veggies and herbs from Lloyd Craft Farms that we have so you can make your own Bone Broth! Instant pot is the easiest way…2 hours during the night…and then cool and store in the fridge. We should have some bones, too! You can drink a hot cup a day, or use it for cooking: sauces, gravy, soups and stews…Our ‘kit’ has celery root, carrots, onion, and a lot of parsley…also including some other dried herbs...and fresh beef bones!

Update! On ALL FRONTS–

We here at Lloyd Craft Farms are catching our breath…for the first time in 6 MONTHS! What a season on all fronts–!

**First, thanks to all those who supported the garden this year–We appreciate you and the garden loves you! It is all but cleaned up, ready for the spring when we take up the old beds, till, and put out the new beds and plants and seeds. Watch for a post on the opening of the CSA in March 2021.

**Second, if you didn’t know, we are now the proud owners of Bee Healthy! We ask for your support on this community endeavor, too! I will be posting information on health, healthy items, and other goodies that we handle at Bee Healthy. Right now–I’m overstocked on Farm Fresh Eggs, all locally sourced! $3.50 a dozen, but now $3.15 each if you buy 2! Stop in and visit– 🙂

**Third, Buyer’s Group will start up the second week in January 2021. That’s where we sign folks up for 2 Special Boxes of fruits and veggies a month, and stock additional groceries to augment your Special Box. (We have to build a cooler in the back of Bee Healthy to make it work downtown instead of at The Farm.) Watch for our post the end of December! No money down, just a commitment to be a part– Good, predominantly organic, fresh foods! In one day and out the next!

Happy Monday! The Farmer’s Wife
