BABY FOODS -

healthytimes.gifHealthy Times was founded in 1980 by Rondi K. Prescott. At the time, Rondi was a young mother looking for products that did not contain refined sugars, preservatives or artificial additives. Rondi had studied nutrition at Colorado State University for her own satisfaction than for any career goal. When her daughter, Lorissa, was born, Rondi found that there were no products on the market that met her ingredient standards. In fact, sugar, salt and preservatives were listed in most of the baby foods on the market at the time. Being a natural cook who seldom followed a recipe, Rondi developed the first all natural teething biscuit for her baby using whole grain flour, unsulphured molasses and natural vanilla. Lorissa's pleasure in eating the teething biscuit while being examined by the pediatrician led him to refer other mothers to Rondi for her teething biscuits. When production needs outgrew the kitchen, Healthy Times was born.

Today, Healthy Times products are made from organically grown ingredients, no preservatives or artificial additives. Healthy Times is the only exclusive organic baby food company providing mothers with products that are USDA certified organic, certified kosher by OU, and addresses baby's allergies by offering wheat free, dairy free, soy free products for sensitive babies. The products are also supplemented for baby's healthy growth and development, and recommended by pediatricians and hospitals. Healthy Times products are available to discerning parents throughout the United States and internationally in both Natural Food Stores and Conventional Super Markets.

Parents who want only the highest quality baby food do have a choice -- Earth's Best Organic Baby Food. Earth's Best is the only full line of organic baby food. That means it's grown without potentially harmful pesticides or fertilizers. We use only whole grains, fruits and vegetables. They're specially quick-cooked to preserve nutrition and flavor. Earth's Best never adds a speck of salt, refined sugar, modified food starch or artificial flavoring. We also never use concentrates to make our juices. Just real food.



BEANS - Beans and more beans!! ... bulk and packaged ... fava beans, but no Chianti!

BEER - Imported and small brewers featured.

And now !! ---

lazy magnolia brewery logo Mississippi made beer! Our state has finally registered its first microbrewery. Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company is located in Kiln, MS and has recently begun to distribute all over the Jackson area. We are happy to carry this project for many reasons. First and foremost is that there is very little transportation cost involved in receiving them here at our store, which translates into very little fossil fuels burned in the transaction. All of the money spent on these little ditties stays in Mississippi!

Lazy Magnolia sells their product in 6-packs of glass bottles, and returnable kegs called "party pigs". Party Pigs are 2.25 gallons of beer, equal to a case of 12 oz bottles, in a plastic oblong bubble, pressurized and ready to go, all for just $34.99. This means there is less packaging and less waste. In addition to this earth-friendly practice, they will also allow you to return the pig and they will rinse, sterilize, and reuse it!

Last, but not least, they buy their ingredients as locally as possible. Their Southern Pecan was first made with Mississippi pecans back in 2003 when they first began experimenting. After Katrina, they have been forced to search out pecans in Mid-Louisiana. Soon enough, the Mississippi pecan harvest will be back and they will be the first to know.

We are offering 3 of their staple brews, Southern Pecan, Blue Heron, and Amberjaque all at $34.99/2.25 gal....(That's a bit less than the only other store in town we could find offering it!)

BUTTER: DAIRY AND OTHERS - Our dairy butter is supreme, organic, and delicious. Our soy and other substitute butters are especially chosen for their ability to provide just the texture and flavor desired by our discriminating customers.

NUT AND SEED BUTTERS - We have Sunflower Seed Butter, Peanut Butter, Cashew Butter, Almond Butter, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Hemp Seed Butter, and Soy Nut Butter. Nut and seed butters are high in essential nutrients and phytochemicals that help keep us feeling healthy and energized. Of all the food groups, our cultural eating habits often leave us lacking in nuts and seeds at the end of the day. Come and try out these flavorful butters and give a little flair to your snacks and dishes.

Red Wood Hill Farm has been producing award-winning goat milk for over thirty years with the least amount of processing possible. They do not employ standardization or homogenization to their milks, nor sugar, coloring, preservatives, stabilizers, or powdered milks. Redwood Hill Farm does not use antibiotics except in cases where it is required to save the goats life and then the milk is discarded until well after the treatments have finished. No hormones are used to increase milk production. Aside from premium practices, the actual goats on the ranch are bred for perfection as well. Redwood Hill Farm holds National Champions in four out of five competing breeds. All 400 goats even have personal names!

RECYCLING - Click Here for recycling info.

blackriceBLACK RICE - Black "forbidden rice" is so named because originally, in China, it was considered the Emperor's rice and it was forbidden for anyone else to eat it.
Black rice is one of several black-colored heirloom plants producing rice variants such as Indonesian black rice and Thai Jasmine Black Rice. Black rice is high in nutritional value including iron. Unlike other rice from Asia, it is not glutinous or rough. This grain has a similar amount of fiber to brown rice and like brown rice, has a mild, nutty taste.
According to a study presented at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), "one spoonful of black rice bran contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than a spoonful of blueberries and better yet, black rice offers more fiber and vitamin E antioxidants, but less sugar."
