Harvest Market believes healthy eating means eating foods which are locally raised, grown and produced. The eggs and chicken in your diet are from happy, healthy, free roaming hens and consume wild caught fish and seafood. Eating pork, lamb & beef are best from locally pastured pigs, sheep and cattle.
