Good Earth
More Than a Store

Good Earth is a locally owned produce and garden center that specializes in providing the freshest and tastiest local fruits, veggies, clean meats, eggs and dairy from local farmers. We also support local bakers, families and artisans by selling amazing breads, jarred goods, dried goods, soaps, candles and oh so much more! Over the years, our faithful customers have repeatedly requested non-local produce that cannot be grown in our area, so we provide these products too. You can get almost anything else on-line or at the big box stores, but get the freshest produce and most beautiful plants right here at Good Earth. Now that fall has set in and the holidays are around the corner, our store will be stocked with seasonal produce such as pie pumpkins, squashes, greens, apples, nuts, citrus and homemade breads, pies and cakes! The greenhouse will boast beautiful Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes, including hypoallergenic trees! We also have yards of garland and wreaths of different sizes. Everything you need for the holidays is right here at Good Earth!

December is Navel Orange Time!!!
Cynthia F Catts,  RD, LD

By far one of the sweetest oranges, the Navel orange is in the house!! All oranges are excellent sources of the antioxidant vitamin C which everyone knows may boost the immune system (especially important now that it is cold and flu season). One orange has over 100% of the Daily Value for valuable vitamin C. Oranges also are great sources of the very important mineral potassium. Like other citrus fruits (we also have tangerines, tangelos, grapefruits, lemons and limes), Navel oranges contain the compound D-limonene which has been touted to prevent cancers of the lung, skin and breast! Like lemons, Navel oranges contain alkaline minerals that are beneficial for overall health and play an important role in healthy digestion. Food is medicine! Also, oranges contain the very important phytonutrient called herperidin, which has been shown to lower blood pressure and total cholesterol in animal studies.

Here is a very simple salad dressing using fresh squeezed juice from the Navel orange (Navels are best juiced when squeezed at room temperature).
Whisk together:
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

It's the week before Christmas...

...and all through the CSRA, they're stuffing the stockings at Good Earth, hooray! Guys, we have everything you need to pack some premium socks this Christmas, and you'd better hop on that reindeer quick because it's right around the corner! Tips from the Good Earth elves: 

1. Drop one of our giant & delicious Naval oranges into the toe of the stocking to make it look extra full and encourage giddy squeals of delight. 
2. Red, green, and white candies in all textures and shapes make a festive and tasty treat and are malleable enough to fill out the boot. 
3. Load it up! Local honey sticks, packets of cookies, salt water taffy, holiday themed bars of soap, hand-made caramels , and miniature bags of heirloom popcorn make excellent additions for all ages.
4. The final touches mean everything- use a handful or two of our mixed nuts in the shell to fill in the cracks and edges for a fluffy and fabulous stocking! 

Happy Holidays!
