New York Apples: From Farm to Table
In just a few months, the perfect combination of sunlight, water, and love by dedicated farmers had transformed those beautiful white flower buds into one of America’s most beloved fruits.

Customizable Vegan Fruit, Nut & Seed Energy Bites
Last summer I was able to go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Georgia with the National Peanut Board to learn how peanuts are produced and harvested. It was incredible to meet the farmers and to learn more about how peanuts are brought to us, from farm to table.
For everyday use, I am most partial to peanut butter because it is the most affordable nut butter and accessible to everyone at just about every grocery store.
