Showing support for rural grocery stores.

Support your local grocery stores. The New York Times published an article Nov 5th, highlighting the lack of accessibility to grocery stores in many of the same places that contribute to food production for the U.S.. (Click the image below to be brought to the full article.) In our community, every purchase you make, large AND small, is a contribution that allows us to stay open and continue offering locally sourced products.

Your participation matters to us! Thank you!

Eggs during the winter….

Why is PDT low on eggs?

As fall sets in for the season, hens start to prepare their bodies for the winter. Much of their energy starts to be used for the production of stronger feathers to keep them warm. Another reason for the slow down in a hens egg production is a reduction in the amount of daylight hours. Hens need at least 12-14 hours of daylight to lay at their full potential.

Our great egg producers are keeping us as stocked as they can!

Local Honey!

Fresh honey has arrived from Kent and Lori Peterson of Benson, MN!

We now have a new 4 lb honey option!

The freshly harvested honey is a lighter color than the older honey. This reflects the change of seasons, and which flowers are available for the bees!
