A small, organic, family farm needs help ♥

41516544_1566519032975067_r

My best friend is in need of help. Her certified organic apple orchard has 10% of the crop it should, if that. We’re talking maybe 3,000 bushel instead of 30,000. It sucks so bad because there is huge demand for her apples, especially as vinegar.  But this year, out of nearly 20 she’s been there, the crop is not there. You can see it when you drive up. Some trees have a few apples, many have none. Some will have one branch that looks great, the rest of the tree is bare. It is so sad.

 

This woman is my inspiration to always do what I can, when I can, where I can. To do better, to do more. She truly lives her life as an example of being a good steward to the land, an amazing Mom, a fantastic friend, a surrogate Auntie to my kids. Many don’t realize that there is a small list of approved sprays that can be used on organic crops. She refuses to use ANY spray for anything. Instead she relies on beneficial gardens and bugs, pigs who root up the ground and eat insects, she understands and values the complete ecosystem she has on her ridge, and understands how it works together. This year, something happened, and the apples aren’t there like they have been every other year since the orchard was planted. I know our local community is going to band together & help as much as we can, but I also know some of you have a few extra bucks that you are willing to send to a good cause. And I assure you, there are few causes I will ever feel better about supporting than this one. I have already made a cash donation, and will be donating as many hours as my time as I possibly can to help her produce items for the boxes she will be sending out.

 

If able, you can PayPal donations in any amount (please click on photo below & read details). If able to donate $150, you can choose to receive a gift box full of goodies from the orchard this fall, in time for Thanksgiving, all certified organic. She has worked her butt off, as always, to harvest all the bounty the orchard provides all year: berries of every kind get made into jelly, garlic gets ground into powder, herbs get harvested & dried, elderberries into syrup, etc. What apples they are able to harvest will be made into pie filling & vinegar. And if you can’t donate, I 100% understand! Please offer well-wishes, prayers, good vibes, whatever you believe in, up to the Universe so that this family can stay on the land they love & see another, better apple season ♥

A Go Fund Me page has now been created too. They have a huge goal, but together, many small donations will get them there! https://www.gofundme.com/f/turkey-ridge-organic-orchard?utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0gLSKxg8qbfXl-b-Yq72mEZsGFP3cv_oPBHR9VgRi29YPavifdCNpF-GQ

Be the change you wish to see….

It makes me so happy to know that the next generation(s) are being raised to refuse single use plastic. For my kids, bringing our own straw and refusing a lid is the norm. A month or so ago, I had taken our straws in to wash them and forgotten to put them back in the vehicle. We went out to eat and I accepted a straw, as I tend to dump ice water all over myself when the ice shifts if I try to drink out of a cup. My Son: MOM, you taught us to say no to straws, what the heck are you doing?! Total straw shaming, and it made me SO proud!

While shopping, my Son helps find the option with the least amount of plastic. We needed bunny food today. I grabbed a medium sized bag, but it was plastic. He says: Mom, the larger bag is paper, and then we won’t need food for a very long time too. Yes, yes Son, you are absolutely right! So, SO proud.Oh, and he’s 8!

Here’s our set-up. Not cheap for the 4 Decorative Dots straws + the hemp carrier (from GlassDharma), but as a family of 4, this is perfect for us! I’m a firm believer in making quality investments that will last many, many years. 100% made in USA, reusable, eco-friendly materials, win-win-win! And seriously, while I feel like my kiddos don’t listen at times, when I really want them to, they show me they are paying attention… Be the change you wish to see in the world!

It’s Buying Club Time!

I only offer this opportunity 3x/year, the next order after this is in October!

There are NUMEROUS vendors offering savings of 10% or more if you get your order in before 11:59pm Central on 6/5. The FINAL deadline is 6/9 at 11:59pm Central. All details here.

I wanted to point out a few things:
–Mountain Rose DOES have dried elderberries in stock currently, this is absolutely the time to order them. I can all but guarantee they will be out of stock during our next order in Oct.
–My homemade toothpaste and deodorant is now $9, but I’m offering it at $7.50/jar for the buying club only, that’s a huge savings!
–Sun stuff: this order will ship to you end of June, early July, so stock up on your Summer Sun protection and relief. Numerous vendors offer sunscreens, Poofy has a fabulous After Sun Spray that I’m never without. Urban Baby Bonnets are only offered once/year, and they also offer winter bonnets.
–School stuff: while school is just getting out for many kiddos, the next order after this is Oct so if possible, get your stainless steel lunch items, organic cotton sandwich/snack bags, Meli Wraps, immune boosting products now!
–luffas: Brand new vendor, and just about every order that has come in thus far is grabbing a couple of them, I’m super excited about these!
–Pure Play Kids (my baby) is a vendor, and has many of items in stock from vendors not being offered this round, as well as a whole bunch more fun stuff. Any income I make on Pure Play sales goes back into stocking more fun stuff, I have a huge wish list of things I’d love to add to the variety there!

Welcome to the NEW Pure Play Kids!

Thank you for your patience! After purchasing the site in October (read about my journey here), I made it through my 1st Holiday season. Then I shut the site down in January while I traveled, and worked on switching website hosts to make my site more mobile-friendly & user-friendly from my end. This took much longer than I had hoped, but finally, here we are mid-March & it is fully back online, better than ever!

With Easter ~1 month away, I hope you’ll make me one of your 1st stops for shopping. I have all-natural egg dye kits, and many other fun items for your Easter baskets. I also have unique items for your kitchen, home, and self-care. Without your support, little shops like mine aren’t able to survive in this world of Amazon convenience. I promise to do my best to keep my prices as low as possible, and most orders ship same day, or next, after I receive your order!
