Clem&Thyme Nutrition
Help us celebrate the One Year Anniversary of Clem&Thyme Nutrition. This new business was founded by Leslie Edmunds, a registered dietitian and a farmer's daughter with an interest in wholesome, nutritional foods. 

Enjoy tours of the remodeled farmhouse, now a functional, welcoming space for Leslie and her team to meet with clients, host group sessions, grow their own fruits and veggies, and conduct tasty, educational cooking demos. 

Also hear Leslie talk about the importance of nutrition as she shows us how to make a nutritious dessert in the state of their art kitchen.
