Well friends, Fall is here! In fact it just showed up this morning, in full force. I think most everyone welcomes that fresh, crisp air that seems to only stick around for a handful of weeks. We eagerly pull out the sweaters and boots and begin to bundle up. We all love to live and relish in the moments of Fall and what it has to offer to us Michigan folks because we know what is shortly around the corner. (insert Winter…oh no!) Of course what would Fall be without family, friends, football and FOOD?! It always seems that Sunday dinners with family picks up a bit more and the one pot dinners re-enter the stage. Even though we all fill up on chili or roast, we always leave a little room for mom’s famous apple crisp.

Next weeks apples are coming from Eden Farm in Greenville, Michigan. There really is no reason to stray from Michigan for apples during the hustle and bustle of the season. The taste and texture of an apple is the sweet, sweet depiction of what Fall is like here for us in West Michigan. The dedication that the Eden farmers put into the harvest is indescribable.

Here is a video from Eden Farms that you must watch. It is beautifully done and shares a lot of valuable messages. Doorganics is proud to work with such an amazing farm. It is clear that the genuine belief runs deep within their day to day practice. We are happy to keep bringing you what they have to offer right to your door.
