Monthly Workout/Challenge: Hanging Tee-shirt Challenge:
This challenge is simple but not easy. While hanging from a pull-up bar your goal is to take your shirt off, then put it back on, without coming off the bar. Good luck!

What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating:
I have always been frustrated with the supplement industry with hidden chemicals, low quality, and unsure of what to trust or not. After all, supplements are expensive and are designed to make you healthier NOT sicker. I recently discovered the company Native Path, owned by Dr. Chad Walding and after thorough research I decided to reach out to the company and ask them some questions about the quality of their supplements. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. On top of that they mailed me 5 different supplements to try. (3 of which I was already taking from a different company.) Their collagen product (for joint strength, digestion and skin care) is from grassfed sources, sugar, dairy and gluten free. I put it in my smoothies, bone broth and in my coffee. Its an amazing product and highly recommended. Next month Ill chat about another supplement of theirs I am seeing great results with. The next time you buy supplements remember that the supplement industry is UNREGULATED, meaning you should know the quality and the true ingredients in your products or you just as well should be eating cardboard.

We have had some questions about the Farmacy Food Shed, so I will address them here:
1) You do NOT need to be a member for chicken, produce or egg sales. So if you prefer to purchase on-site, go right ahead. You can leave your money in the basket. If you order online before hand, we will have your order labeled with your name on it by Thursday of the week you ordered.
3) Why do you need to be a member to purchase beef/pork? Because of lovely USDA requires direct sales of beef or pork be either USDA stamped OR you must be a partial owner of the livestock. The cool thing is, we figured out all the behind the scenes process and integrated everything online, making it a one-time process and then you are locked in.
4) Currently we have chicken for sale on site. We are working at getting a fridge in there for eggs and our local honey. Next season the shed will be fully outfitted with organic produce, goat soap, and a variety of cool local products.
NEW PRODUCT ANNOUCEMENTS:
Beef Liver- 2lb packages (organ meat is a superfood!)
