  • One of the best ways to engage kids in healthy habits is to have them do the veggie picking. Bring them to a local farm to see how vegetables grow. Spend an afternoon at a pick-your-own farm, then allow the kids to help prepare and cook them. They’ll be rushing to the table to try “their” work. You will be ecstatic at how well this tactic works! #paveggies #buyfreshbuylocalpa #papreferred #homegrownhappiness #buyfreshbuylocal #pennsylvania #vegetables #momlife #healthykids #onthefarm #localfood #farmtotable #kids

  • Fall has officially arrived. And, OH, what a delicious bounty it brings. Quite possibly our favorite time of year. We currently have sweet potatoes on the mind, but it may be pumpkins tomorrow.
