The Amazing Health Benefits of Bone Broth

The Amazing Health Benefits of Bone Broth

Bone broth has become the latest trend in healthy eating, and for good reason. Unlike jelly bracelets and Milli Vanilli, bone broth isn’t a fad that will be hip one day, and forgotten the next. In fact, bone broth has been a staple of home cooks for decades. Chances are that your grandmother often had a pot of it, bubbling away on her stove. I don’t know what took us so long to bring it back to the health-conscious cook’s stove top, but I’m glad it’s back. Hopefully, it’s back to stay.
Organic avocado production - Kandanga

Organic avocado production - Kandanga

Meet Steve and Veronica, organic avocado growers in the Mary Valley who take a 'working with nature', approach to farming, using legumes and grasses as a live mulch to build organic matter and improve the soil health. 

Steve has learned that the the more he focuses on encouraging healthy soil, by creating an environment friendly to beneficial bacteria, fungi and insects, the result is fewer weeds, and more and more beneficial plants, grasses and herbage. 

The health of the soil has increased so dramatically, that Steve often works on his farm in bare feet, stating that, "the farm has become soft like a carpet under my feet." 

Steve and Veronica have worked tirelessly since they purchased the farm in 2014, to implement organic practices. Steve and Veronica are careful and responsible in their approach to all facets of farming, sourcing local grass for compost, and hiring local help for harvesting. Their dedication to taking care of the environment is paying off with increased soil health, and product production. 

It's dedicated farmers like Steve and Veronica, who make what we do here at Fresh Box possible, and so valuable...bringing healthy, local produce to you and your family.
