Grown in the Hills - Fresh from the Hills of Headwaters!

These are the Hills of Headwaters, part of the greenbelt... our living countryside.

Here you can plant your bare feet on the earth. And when you dine the greens in your salad were picked this morning... the vegetables are from that farm over there... the berries in dessert grow wild along the fencelines.
