The Cumming Harvest:  Wellness Wednesday / Grower Spotlight


Have you tried Elderberry Syrup yet? Let’s talk about the health benefits and how to get some!

• Elderberries are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The health benefits associated with taking elderberry are known to boost the immune system. Elderberry syrup has been used as an effective natural remedy for centuries for treating and preventing colds, coughs and flu. Research shows the use of elderberry could shorten the duration of flu by about three to four days, along with lessening symptom severity if taken within the first 24 hours of having the flu.

Check out one of our growers who offers it and just replenished their inventory with us:

Good Shepherd Herbals

• Father’s Bounty Homestead is the home of Good Shepherd Herbals located in middle Tennessee. Our Elderberry Syrup, herbal salves, and goat’s milk soaps are made with care on our family farm. These are natural care alternatives to the commercial chemical laden products found in most stores.
• We use chemical free milk from our Saanen does to make our soaps. They are cold pressed and hand cut. All of our goat’s milk soaps are gentle and emollient; safe for infants, the elderly, and those with skin issues.
• Our various herbal salves are made in small batches. The herbal infusion process takes 14 days. Special attention is given to consistent temperatures and purity.

Our address is: 3540 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming 30041 (behind Hollywood Feed). Please be sure to come to the new address this weekend.

As a reminder the market is open from Wednesday morning through Thursday at 8pm for orders. All orders must be picked up on Saturday from 10am until 12pm noon. Please be respectful of our volunteers’ time and plan to pick up early and not right before noon.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thanks,

X-Sage Medium Breakfast is on the fall roster as Thanksgiving approaches. Give it a try this week and see if it will suit you stuffing recipe.

Chicken Sausages will be added by the end of the week. Be sure to check back for the much anticipated sausage reveal.
