Heavens Harvest Farm Newsletter
It is a bit of a dreary day today so we are making the most of being inside. Crafts, playdough, baking, school and laundry!!! We hardly go anywhere, so why is there still so much laundry??!!
I plan to make a cabbage hamburger soup and almond flour biscuits later today. I'll also food prep some baked sweet potatoes & sautéed zucchini & mushrooms for meals later in the week.
It is currently snowing and I'm feeling a little less enthusiastic about it. We wished for a snowy winter for outdoor fun but I guess spring could come early and we'd be fine!
I'm off to play with my littles. Check out the recipes and article of the week and enjoy!

Understanding Food Labels
Info courtesy foodandwaterwatch

The labels on our food, from organic vegetables to USDA-inspected meat to cage-free eggs, can be confusing. How much do food labels actually tell you?


Certified Organic
Right now the most meaningful label on your food, in terms of upholding specific government requirements, is the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic seal.

For a product to be certified organic, it’s required to meet specific standards:
  • Organic crops cannot be grown with synthetic fertilizers, synthetic pesticides or sewage sludge.
  • Organic crops cannot be genetically engineered or irradiated.
  • Animals must eat only organically grown feed (without animal byproducts) and can’t be treated with synthetic hormones or antibiotics.
  • Animals must have access to the outdoors, and ruminants (hoofed animals, including cows) must have access to pasture. 
  • Animals cannot be cloned.
