Got Flax

~Ellie's Corner~

flaxseed, ellies whole grians,     Winter is slowly leaving us!   I feel like I have been hibernating here in MN -yesterday was -21* wind chill!  But spring will be here soon... 

I am excited for the Kentucky National Farm Machinery Show Feb 16-19.  If you are going, we would love to see you -Come say hi!, ellies whole grains, Snow in Car

Spring is coming and that means farmer's markets will be starting back up again.  Check for farmer's markets near you and support local!

 I'm glad that snow filled car is not mine.  I can't imagine cleaning it out!  I hope you are staying safe this winter.

Thank you for your support!

Blessings on you!

Cholesterol Lowered with Flaxseed + Exercise

Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again. Peter W.
