Tasty Tips from Farmer Craig’s Kitchen

Full Circle Soils & Compost folks know: we grow things because we like to grow things. But we like to grow things because we like to eat! Here’s another seasonal tip from the man himself!

Many Americans are about to record some serious spikes in their cranberry sauce intake levels for the next couple of months. For many folks, it’s just part of the season. And that’s all find and dandy, but if you’d like to spice up your meals / leftovers / lives this holiday season, treat your family and friends to this scrumptious alternative fixin’:
