Simplicity, because who doesn’t like the simple things in life? That is certainly something indicative of the South and is exactly what LeAnn’s Gourmet Foods, a company out of McDonough, GA, seems to incorporate in its delectable items. A simple family recipe made with simple ingredients is what jump-started this line of delicacies.
If you find yourself feeling a bit nostalgic this Christmas Season, make your way to White Oak Pastures’ General Store in downtown Bluffton. The sound of the boards as you step onto the old wood floors, takes some of us back to a simpler time. A time where hustling and bustling was far removed from this quaint panacea.
The holidays are our favorite part of the year here at White Oak Pastures. What better way to ring in the holidays than with a holiday-scented candle? Our fragrance repertoire has expanded to add three new scents: Warm Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie, and Christmas. Gingerbread scent has come back for another year. Each scent fills the room with the feel and excitement of the holidays!

In 1997, a natural twist on a traditional Southern food was born. Kevin and Gayla Shaw began grinding natural white corn into grits for their own personal use. Their creation was a hit when they gave it away in Christmas gifts, so they decided to expand their market. Gayla’s Grits has always prided itself in keeping the integrity and quality of their grits 100% all natural. In keeping with this standard, non-GMO heirloom seeds are used to grow the corn that is used for their grits on their family farm.
Located above Atlanta in Suwanee, GA is a locally owned and operated business called Cultured Traditions. Tanya and Charles Sharp bring their Russian tradition to the South with their variety of fermented foods.
Historically, when growing fresh foods was not possible, people learned how to naturally ferment foods to preserve them for storage and use during the winter months. Over time, the health benefits became obvious, and have since been proven to be even more significant. For this reason, consuming fermented foods strictly for their health benefits is quite common.
We love these high quality, healthy, artisanal crackers. They are hand-made and free of preservatives or stabilizers. Based out of Atlanta, Georgia Sourdough Co. sources its 100% organic flour and other all natural fresh ingredients from local farmers. The cracker dough is mixed, rolled, sliced and baked by hand. Georgia Sourdough Co. was started by long-time foodie and baker Tracy Bribbon with a focus on creating a snack that was healthy but still had old fashioned taste.
