Their poultry is also certified organic and they are raised on pasture and rotated around the farm like the cows. Message from Greg & Forrest: Hope your Labor Day was enjoyable; we are hoping the fall months will bring drier weather. We have recorded 29.5" of rain in the past 45 days. In August we had 20.2". We have springs of water flowing out of the ground where nobody remembers there ever being water there before. Tons of rain and humidity means lots of grass growth, but challenges in other areas like keeping the cows out of the mud.

 

Zah'r Spices: Their goal is to supply authentic and popular North African and Middle Eastern spices to their local communities and beyond. All of their spices are kosher certified, non-GMO, and gluten free. They want to bring the best spices to your kitchen table.
