FEED THE HEAT!
Healthy soil means healthy plants. In addition to plenty of water, we recommend fertilizing your plants and gardens regularly, especially during hot Nebraska summers. We suggest using organic fertilizers as they are carbon-based and don’t introduce toxic chemicals into the soil, plants or vegetables you’re growing and eating. Organic fertilizers are also non-toxic, bio-degradable, and they leave the soil fertile for years to come without depleting them of necessary nutrients. Our organic fertilizer selection includes: Earth Juice, Down to Earth, and Fox Farm.

OUR DIP + YOUR VEGGIES = HAPPY BELLIES!
Zucchinis, tomatoes, green beans, sweet peas, cucumbers and fresh greens are arriving daily in gardens across the panhandle. Our Vegetable Dip and Dressing Spice Mix is the perfect complement to the bounty of your garden’s harvest. All of our dip mixes are organically grown on property, created in our on-site commercial kitchen and come in the following varieties: Afrika, Taco, Vegetable/Dressing, Smoky BBQ, Smoky Spicy Pepper, Spicy Italian, Spicy Herb, Sweet Heat, Spicy Fajita, Greek, Olive Rub, Cajun, and Jamaica Me Krazy. Try one today!

GRASS HOPPER SEASON DOESN’T HAVE TO LEAVE YOU JUMPING!
Did you know grasshoppers are herbivores and eat about half their body weight in plants every day? One or two grasshoppers aren’t a big deal but several can be problematic and detrimental to gardens and crops of any size. Instead of jumping when you see them, we recommend, NOLO Bait Biological Insecticide. It contains a natural microsporidial pathogen of grasshoppers that eliminates these pests without introducing toxic pesticides to your plants and food.

GROWING FRESH VEGETABLES FOR YOU!
