Number 2 Cull Peaches

We recently sent out an email requesting feedback from those who had ordered peaches on the last order to help us decide whether to have another Peach Order.  It was pretty clear from the feedback that the answer is YES!

Here’s what folks reported:

  • Most said their peaches where AWESOME and can’t wait for the next truckload.
  • Many said they had a few bruised peaches to deal with but they felt that got a good value and would do it again.
  • A few had a bunch of preaches that where very bruised.
  • The majority of negative complaints are from people who did not get to their peaches right way.

Here’s what we did and what we discovered:

First of all, we will be sending out refunds to those who requested refunds.
We also called the peach orchard and discussed the bruising problem with them. We’ve come to find that the terms for their “number 2” peaches can be pretty broad. We were told we need to accept that their number 2 peaches may have some bruising. It was also made clear that peaches have a relatively small window of time between ripe and over-ripe; and of course peaches with  any bruising will narrow this window even more.

Here’s how we are moving forward:

As we’ve come to terms with the farm’s position on number 2 peaches, it’s important to properly set your expectations about the number 2’s.
After a little pondering, we decided to re-name them “Number 2 culls”.  “Culls” are the ones that have been rejected as number 1’s for any number of reasons, including some amount of bruising.If you’ve been buying these “number 2’s” from us, and you’ve been happy with them, it’s possible you’re the kind of person that babysits your peaches, and process them as soon as they ripen, and you will deal with a certain amount of bruising.  Or it may be possible you’ve been lucky to receive near-perfect-number-2’s because many of them can be described that way).Either way, it is our place to make sure we represent the product properly so that you can make a good buying decision and your expectations can be reasonably met.

We want you to be happy with your peaches.

Here’s what we recommend:

Although this may cast an uncertain shadow on the popular “Number 2 culls” we do need to be clear that the farm now says they may have some bruising.If you want peaches for fresh eating, order the #1 peaches. They are truly the cat’s pajamas of peaches.On the other hand, if you’re going to be processing your peaches right away, and you’re willing to cut around any possible bruised spots, then the Number 2 Culls are a very popular choice.

Bottom Line and Responsibility:

Your Part:  Please make sure to look over your peaches as soon as you get them. Freeze them, can them, eat them with your neighbors or bake a bunch of cobbler. Just remember the clock is ticking when peaches enter into your life.Our Part:   We take great pains to accurately represent the items you get.  And overall, we do a good job.But we do work with many farms around the country and there are times that the farm sends something that’s less than acceptable.

If you ever receive something from us that is not satisfactory, please let us know so we can make it right.

If any of that was unclear, here’s the gist of it in one sentence:
Number 2 cull peaches may contain “some” bruising but we won’t be idiots about refunding you if you get a really bad box of number 2 culls and you’re not satisfied.

Organic Vanilla Extract & Vanilla BeansVanilla

As we mentioned last night, we will be ordering from our vanilla supplier today in just a little while. So the sooner you get your order in for any of these special vanilla items, the better.

After sampling many different brands, we believe the Singing Dog Vanilla extract is one of the best there is. But we’re eager to know what you think too. Order yours now and take part in our Great Vanilla Search just by offering your feedback once you’ve tried it.



All Things Maple
Organic Maple Syrup Order
The especially cool spring weather has presented our maple grower with a later-than-average harvesting time. So our organic maple order will be later than usual as well. Right now, it looks like the delivery dates for maple syrup, maple sugar, maple candy, and maple nuts will be in early-ish June.

Although it won’t be delivered until June, we plan to start taking orders for all things maple sometime next week.ates for maple syrup, maple sugar, maple candy, and maple nuts will be in early-ish June.
And folks, this is amazing maple syrup. Fresh from Vermont, the BEST we’ve ever had! You won’t want to miss this stuff! (And it freezes perfectly, so you can stock up for your own family or even for Christmas gifts if you’re the type to plan ahead.)


Rapadura Organic Whole Cane Sugar

You, we, and everyone else has been anxiously awaiting our bulk Rapadura whole organic cane sugar, so here’s an update. It has taken F.O.R.E.V.E.R. for the ship to carry our rapadura from Brazil, where it is harvested and processed, to the U.S.A. And even after it arrives here in the states, it has to be inspected and also receive clearance from customs before we can pick it up at the dock and truck it to Tennessee.

The good news is…

The rapadura has arrived in the states, cleared customs, passed inspection, and is ready for us to pick up. Now, the only question is WHEN it will arrive here in TN. We hope it will be delivered in time for our April delivery. If not, then it will certainly be available on our May order form.

We’ll keep you posted.

Cod Liver Oil & Butter Oil SpecialCod Liver Oil | Green Pasture Special

Green Pasture, the supplier of our cod liver oils and butter oils, is careful to maintain equal pricing on their products for everyone. No matter where you buy your Green Pasture cod liver oil and butter oil, the price is the same.

But we’ve been given special permission by Green Pasture to make a high volume purchase, and pass the savings on to you this May. This order will include Green Pasture’s famous fermented cod liver oils and their butter oils in many different flavors.

You can also have your regular priced cod liver oil or butter oil shipped directly to your home anytime through this link. The shipping is on us.



Tropical Fruits

We’re still working out the details, but in May, we plan to offer a nice selection of fresh tropical fruits. Keep an eye out for our emails on this one. We’ll know more soon.


Peaches will be later this season; we’re thinking late June.

What happened to the May peaches?

There are peach trees that bear fruit in May, some that bear in June, and others that bear in July. And just as you’d expect, the trees that bear fruit in May bloom sooner than those that are ready for harvest in June or July.

All over the southern, peach-growing states this spring, the weather warmed enough that the May bearing peach trees bloomed a few weeks ago. But just after the bolssoms had been polinated and the fruit had begun to grow, there was a cold snap, and the delicate new fruit was frozen and ruined. So there will not be any peaches available to us in May.

Mind you, there should be plenty of peaches in June and July. It’s only the May bearing trees that were affected by the frost.

Livestock Feed

Livestock feed will be available to order for pick up on the following dates. The order form for the May delivery dates will open soon.

May 22nd or 23rd (depending on where you pick up)
June 26th or 27th (depending on where you pick up)

SAF Yeast Special

SAF yeast in 1 pound bricks is 1/2 price on our dry goods order form! So stock up now!

The one thing you need to know is that the “best-to-use-by” date on these sealed yeast packs is May of 2014. So if you decide to store some up for a while, we recommend placing them in your freezer. This will help keep them fresh for a long time:)

Singing Dog An Exceptionally Good Vanilla

Singing Dog Vanilla:  An Exceptionally Good Vanilla

Singing Dog Vanilla



It was a tough job, folks, but after experimenting with a number of different brands of vanilla, and even more whipped cream, we think we have found a vanilla that is exceptionally good. Watch for these products on our order form from time to time (usually every-other month).

About Singing Dog Vanilla

First of all, yes, it is true that we founded this company on April Fool’s Day 2004 at Bill’s dining room table in Kailua, Hawaii. Second of all, yes, we do know that Singing Dog Vanilla is a pretty silly name.

The Beginning:

Bill Wiedmann and Marty Parisien came up with the idea for this business while both were traveling throughout the Pacific Islands assisting farmers with marketing, finance, and productivity improvements. Marty had read a book by Seth Godin called Purple Cow . On page 107 of that book Seth writes, “But vanilla is boring. You can’t build a fast-growing company around vanilla.” When he read that Marty thought, “What a great idea! Build a company around vanilla” (Yes, if you read the whole book you will see that we did take those lines a bit out of context). At the same time Bill and Marty were introduced to a village in Papua New Guinea that grows vanilla. So we decided to build a vanilla company that shares profits with the vanilla farmers, creates healthy vanilla products, and a happy vanilla crew.

The Silly Name:

We decided to name the company after the Papua New Guinea Singing Dog, a dog only discovered by the outside world in 1952. They don’t bark but rather they sing like whales. It seemed like a good name to represent the kind of company we wished to build. So, we have a silly name but we are very serious about vanilla.

The Products:

We follow 3 simple rules when we develop new vanilla products:

•  Clean: We find the best ingredients we can. Organic, non-GMO, high quality….

•  Rave: The finished product needs to be something that our fans will rave about. No point in introducing a product that is just mediocre.

•  Green: We do our best to use the most sustainable packaging, re-use consumables such as cardboard, and reduce landfill by using materials such as cornstarch packing material, using compostable inner packaging, and providing reusable tea bags.

Organic Yellow Popcorn Is Back

Organic Yellow Popcorn

For the longest time, our delectable buttery yellow organic popcorn has been out of stock from the company that supplies us. But no more! The shipment arrived last night, and we physically hold lots of 5 lb bags of popcorn in our hands.

Easy Caramel Popcorn

Once you have your popcorn, you’ll definitely want to make this easy caramel popcorn. It takes about 10 minutes to put together, it’s made with wholesome ingredients like sucanat or rapduara sugar and honey instead of corn syrup, and it is so, so good. Rather impressive too. =)

Be sure to stock your pantry with coconut oil for popping your popcorn, sucanat, honey, and vanilla so you’re all set to go on this recipe. You’ll find all of these ingredients and more on our order form.

How My Mother In Law Healed A Nasty Case Of Arthritis After A Severly Fractured Arm

Several years before I met my husband, my mother in law suffered a broken, or rather shattered (She broke it in 8 places.), arm because of a car accident. When she was still experiencing level 10 pain after the break had techincally healed, the doctor told her that she would ALWAYS live with chronic arthritis in that arm. And it was BAD. Pain in her arm, up through her shoulder, neck, and even in her back. She couldn’t even shift to drive her car.

But one day, her well-meaning friend Madonna scolded her in a not-so-very-nice voice, “You know, Mae, you don’t have to live like that,” and introduced her to one of the many benefits of apple cider vinegar, it’s potential to heal arthritis. Apple cider vinegar is high in potassium and other minerals that work to break down calcium deposits in the joints and actually remineralize the bones.

So my mother in law began taking two tablespoons of vinegar in water sweetened with two tablespoons of honey three times every day. Within a week, the pain was subsiding a little, so she kept up the vinegar and honey. And within a few more weeks, she was able to function. Three months later, it was as if the injury had never occurred; she was pain free.

It’s been well over 20 years since that debilitating accident, and to this day, Mae still takes her vinegar and honey, and she has never again suffered from joint pain. I don’t know if the vinegar and honey regimen has anything to do with it, but my mother in law is one of the healthiest, spunkiest 71 year olds I have ever known!

Vinegar And Honey

Vinegar And Honey

The word “vinegar” doesn’t suggest a pleasant drink, but actually, I think it tastes a bit like lemonade. Some people say that it tastes kind of like apple pie if you add a little vanilla or vanilla flavored stevia and a dash of cinnamon. So it’s not bad.

Sip this concoction before a meal if you can as it also promotes healthy digestion.

1-2 tablespoons raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (like Bragg’s)
8 oz water
1-2 tablespoons honey or to taste

Mix the water, the honey, and the apple cider vinegar together in a glass.

For convenience, Mae keeps a jug of pre-mixed honey and apple cider vinegar in her fridge so all she has to do is add a little to a glass of water. It’s quick and easy this way.

Remember to place your order for dry goods by tomorrow morning at 9:00. Here’s the link to the order form!

How about you? Has apple cider vinegar helped you out somehow?

Bread baking results

Ever gotten less than enthusiastic applause with your healthy, whole wheat bread?

One of the first things to consider is what kind of wheat you’re using.   Let Emma (our family’s master bread maker) show you the interesting results she got from a bread experiment she did using 3 different kinds of wheat.

If you’re a seasoned bread maker yourself, be sure to get in on our current wheat order truckload sale by clicking the following link  (Plus, there are hundreds of other dry goods items available).

Are you wondering which type of wheat is best for you? Here’s a video that will help you decide.




wow, what a great video. Now you have to post the recipe :)

Thanks for the information, Emma. I usually use white wheat for my bread but I will try mixing them.

i would like your recipe using the three different types of wheat. thanks julie

HI Emma. Great informative video! Since I don’t know how exactly how to make this bread, would you please make a video of how to make the bread from start to finish? My 8 yo son and I would love to do this together! Then if we get it right with your help, we can buy more bulk flours. Thanks so much!!

Oh my goodness! Your bread is so beautiful! I think I’d have a hard time deciding whether to frame it or eat it (I’m pretty sure eating would win!)! Thank you for the helpful info. We are new to bulk grain buying and grinding so this is just the info I was looking for. This will definitely help us! I agree with another comment – next time show us your techniques! Jennifer

Thanks, Emma. This video was very helpful. I have only been using the Prairie Gold wheat as I’ve tried to remember my bread-making skills from years ago. I must be doing something wrong because my loaves never rise as high as yours. Maybe your next video could show us how to make bread as lovely as yours. Thanks again.

Yes, thank you, Emma, for doing the trial and error for us! Your explanations were clear and helpful. We had some spelt pancakes and I was wondering they were ‘flatter than a pancake’ but still enjoyed by all!…Carol Hipp.

Thanks for the info! Do you bake in the oven or bread machine?

Thanks for the tip Emma. I will definitely consider giving Spelt a try. I love nutty flavors! Here is something to try… when in a pinch I use Wheat Montana’s white flour mixed with my wheat germ and whole wheat bran. It makes an easy, light, flavorful bread. One can not always take the time to grind the wheat berries for bread, so I find this a huge time saver as well as a special bread flavor for my family. Why Wheat MOntana? Well because it is non bleached, non bromated, non chemicals. It makes great doughs for pizza, breads, and baking.

I am not able to view the video. It says that “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage”

Emma, I really enjoyed your video! I have been making bread for years but I have had trouble with Spelt bread. Would you share your recipe with us? :)

Your bread looks wonderful! I need to try the spelt. I’ve never known what to use it for!

Wonderful video, Emma! I, like others, will buy spelt on the next order. Make sure you get your commission! ;) Renee

Great job, Emma! We would also love the full recipe you use to make your bread, if you are willing to share it!

Very nice Emma. Would love your recipes and techniques on bread making. I am a newbie to it all, waiting to buy a wheat mill and bread maker. Keep up the great videos! Denise-Madison,TN.

That was great, Emma! Thank you taking the time to investigate and share!

Thanks so much Emma. I am a city girl with very little knowledge on bread baking and have just begun my venture this past year. I wish we could have you over to help me out in person! :) Thanks, Catherine

Emma! Great video! Thanks for putting your time into that!

Yay Emma!! Great job!! Next time your mom brings you to Jackson, please come over!! I need you to teach Piper (age 5) how to make our bread. I need her to take over the bread making in the next couple of years. :)

emma, thank you for this. will you please post your recipe? that would be so helpful! i’ve been grinding my own wheat for a few months but not getting the good results from the recipe i’ve been using for years on pre-ground flour. suggestions?

I am using hard white wheat, as recommended on your site. It is good. I have not formed opinion yet, as I have only made it in the Bread Machine (Zoe), an not manually (where it taste better). Avinash Chandra

Enjoyed the video Emma. I was thinking of trying the spelt and now I am sure to. Just recently bought a flour mill and I am really enjoying it. Thanks for the info.

Thank-you for the demo. It was very interesting. Gracie Anne

Thank you Emma for going to all that trouble to teach us about the differences! I have tried the different organic wheat flours and even almond flour but you have inspired me to try the spelt! And it never occurred to me to mix the flours, you are so smart for pointing that out! It would have really helped my rock hard lumps when I was attempting to make bread out of 100% almond flour!

Great job Emma. I recently began making my own bread because we are getting prepared for the increase of food prices we are seeing now. The recipe I use calls for 3 cups white wheat and 1/2 cup red. I grind that and use the flour to make two loaves. Lynn

emma, you are such a great bread maker – i love your passion – your information was clear and helpful and interesting to watch and listen to. thanks for sharing your findings with us :). jan fox

Emma, what a wonderful job! I bake a lot of bread…but have actually never tried spelt. I’ve really been missing something! Thank you!

Very helpful! I think it is clear that everybody wants your recipe plus the step by step instructions. The breads look yummmy! Corina

Thank you for sharing Emma. You have inspired me to try the spelt. Also, I had never thought of combining the 3 grains. Your loaves are so beautiful, maybe sometime you could show us how you make your bread. Laurie Jordan

Wonderful, Emma! Your bread comparison video is just what I needed to choose a wheat purchase. I am new to bread making but I think I can learn to do this. How I wish you had more bread making videos to help new learners in the process. You might show the various steps of recipes and give tips on how to avoid mistakes, etc. You know, I think you could make a business of teaching bread-making. Thanks again for the video. Well written and a great job! –Cheryl Jamison Smith in Waverly, TN

Very helpful! You seem to be an excellant bread baker! What is your recipe?

Would you post the recipe for the spelt bread please?

Very Helpful Emma, Thank you

Wonderful video! I appreciate the sharing of your bread making experience. Very practical and easy to follow. I agree with some of the other reviewers. Would you please share the actual bread making and baking………thanx, pat

Simply fabulous, Emma! I’m so excited about trying the spelt. Thanks a bunch!

Nicely done, Emma, I enjoyed your video!

A very helpful video and comments. Thanks, Emma

Hi Emma, I thought you were so very thorough in your presentation. I learned everything from you! Your uncle Raisin and I are here and he liked raisins in his bread! Do you wonder who we are?? We are your grammy’s sister and brother in law – that means that we are your great aunt and uncle from San Diego, CA. We are so proud of you! What an excellent video presentation. Wow – we hope to meet you some day. Your grammy and grandpa love you so much! Mary and Ray

Thanks to your video, I now know why my spelt bread does not rise.
Emma, This is a great video! George

May be the recipe of the bread would make it taste even better. George
Thanks Emma! Very informative!

You did a great job on the video. I use spelt and white winter wheat but never thought about combining three for a good combination! :)

Very helpful Emma! I enjoy your videos. I especially appreciated the pie crust video. Although I enjoy baking,a good pie crust has eluded me. Now that I have frozen apples, and know how to make a good pie crust, I can make our famiies’ favorite apple pie even better!I’ve been making bread with just Prarie Gold wheat, but want to try Spelt now. Thank you so much. Do you add wheat gluten to your recipe to help it rise? Fran Beach

Thank you for making this informative video. This is the first time I have seen the differences demonstrated in such a clear way. sincerely Urania

Great idea for a video. Thanks so much for sharing!

Great video. I think you did a wonderful job explaining the three different wheats. If this was a school project I think you would get an A!

Good job with that video, Emma! Beautiful bread loaves you baked, too.

Very informative. Keep up the good work!~Donna F., Alabama

A 50/50 mix of hard red and some soft wheat makes a very good bread. I would suggest that people purchase a grinder that can be run with an electric motor or operated by hand (just in case) because grinding by hand is tough if you actually have electricity and my family grew tired of grinding the wheat by hand and consequentially we don’t make bread often . This is unfortunate both from a nutritional standpoint and as they say ” practice makes perfect”. Good video !

I want to make sour-dough bread using spelt! Any good recipes? Thank’s for the video, good job! Jane

I’m new to bread making and I am very pleased I ran across your presentation. I have many things to learn and you have helped me get started in the understanding in the different types of flours to be used. I know that a lot of bread recipes say to rise your bread twice. Once in the bowl and once in the pan. In my readings, I have found that multiple risings help ensure a soft and fluffy bread. Do you agree? Whats your experience on this matter? Thanks in [email protected]

Excellent presentation! Thank you! What are your thoughts about using bread machines?

I am interested in baking and cooking with spelt because it has a lower glycemic index. Thank you for the great video it was vert helpful! Debbie

Hi Emma, my name is Scott. I’ve been experimenting with making whole spelt bread and its more of a challenge than I thought. But I’m stubborn. : )I like the video idea, it helps a lot. I could use some help with the hole punching the dough down and forming the loaf technique. I’m also having a bit of trouble with too much air in the top half of the loaf. If I can get my bread to look like yours, I will be one happy bread maker.
