That's right, we're taking a road trip, and you're all invited to tag along via Facebook Live!
On Sunday, May 26th I (Ashley), my daughter Lauryn, and some of our Team members from Simply Nourished will be packing into our van for a Local Food Road Trip! We will be stopping to visit many of the local producers who supply product to our store, and we CANNOT WAIT to give you an inside look into their operations. Part of what we love about local food is the transparency that goes along with it. It is amazing to be able to know the farmers who grow and raise the food we eat. It's even more amazing when they live close enough that we can physically visit their farms!
We hope you will considering "joining" us on Facebook throughout the day (or catch the video footage later if the timing isn't ideal for you) May 26th. Here's the line up so you know what to expect and when to tune in:
