If you've seen any of the totes, wallets, bags, or other leather items in our general store lately, you've seen the result of our partnership with Pergamena, a family-owned tannery based in southern New York. Recently, the two brothers, Jesse and Stephen Meyer, came and visited White Oak Pastures.
Some of you may have celebrated spring by coloring eggs this month. But as you colored the outside of the eggs, did you give any thought to the color... inside the eggs?

What a chicken eats can impact the quality and nutritional value of the egg - and you can see it in the yolk.
