Dry Goods and Organic Foods
Dry goods is a historic term describing the type of product line a store carries. Dry goods are dry food, with reference to pre-refrigeration days of the early 20th century. Such foods could, and still can, be transported and stored without immediate danger of spoiling. Dried beans, flours, whole grains and rolled oats are examples.
Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides; growth regulators and livestock feed additives. Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic legislation
Being committed to responsibly sourcing all of our products, we work with local farmers during the summer to provide the freshest and finest produce the growing season has to offer. We are also proud to support other small businesses in the community by carrying locally made goods year round. Products that are not locally sourced are carefully researched and selected based on quality, sustainability, and customer preference.
