Farm Fresh delivery is the way to go!

Farm Fresh delivery is the way to go!

We see a great change happening in food right now. People are ordering online waaaay more than they used to. 

They are avoiding stores. This is the future for some really important reasons. You avoid toxic chemicals used to sanitize supermarkets. You have food prepared and packed on the farm and delivered straight to you. No redundant packaging marketing. No hidden ingredients. No expiration dates. No delays. Just food - straight to you.

By law or their own volition, stores everywhere are now following much stricter sanitation guidelines to keep people “safe”. Now, we do appreciate the efforts to protect the most vulnerable. However, we may be overlooking unnecessary evil here - toxic chemicals that can have a negative impact on your health. 


The first thought that comes to mind is, why are they listed in the EPA’s pesticide section? Immediately followed by: many of those are toxic to humans - why are we harming people while trying to protect them? 

Let’s take one of the most popular cleaners - Clorox Clean-Up with Bleach (the commercial version). It scored a D in the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning. EWG found moderate concern for asthma or respiratory issues and some concerns for skin allergies and irritation, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and cancer

So…. doesn't farm fresh delivery sound much better to me than the supermarket? It’s quicker and more convenient. Whether you pick up in person or take advantage of our home delivery option. Everyone wants more time, right? Ordering online, especially when you repeat orders from the same farm, is so much faster! 

It takes me about 2 hours to GO food shopping! When I order online from a new store, it probably takes 30-60 minutes and I do not have my house, my kid's sports practice, I can be sitting on the train, bus, in a cab or waiting at the bank and take care of my family at the same time. And, when I repeat online grocery orders, it takes less than 10 minutes every time. So much time saved!!! The true meaning of multitasking in the 21st century :-) 

By ordering directly from a small farmer, you are cutting out a big part of the supermarket supply chain. Think about all the refrigerated warehouses and tractor-trailer trucks that you can avoid using by ordering farm-fresh food online. You are also cutting your gas bill, the wear and tear on your vehicle, and toll personal driving takes on the environment and our infrastructure. 

It’s more efficient for a truck to deliver 300 people’s food orders in one day. You save money by buying exactly what you need. When I walk into a store...I walk out with at least 5 things I did not need... 

Although prices when ordering food online can appear to be higher than the supermarket (you’re paying for shipping one way or another), you do not suffer from the inane in-store advertising that often results in impulse buying of moderately delicious and questionably healthy food. It’s a more efficient way to get your food and better for the environment. 

By ordering directly from a small farmer, you are cutting out a big part of the supermarket supply chain. Think about all the refrigerated warehouses and tractor-trailer trucks that you can avoid using by ordering farm-fresh food online. You can more directly support small farmers. Small farmers that are regenerating soil, raising animals humanely, and producing nutrient-dense food are worth supporting. 

We thank you so much for your support of Miller’s Farms!

Asparagus – Who knew?

Asparagus – Who knew?

This is from a friend:

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.

Conscious Eating for Healthy Living

Conscious Eating for Healthy Living

In the search for wellness and a successful life, we cannot stress enough the importance of pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Think about it: your body, mind and spirit are part of a delicate, interconnected system. If one fails, the other two are bound to crumble. What happens to your body will inevitably affect your state of mind and your spirit will certainly become restless if you’re not physically well. Becoming conscious of what you eat and learning the best way to nourish your body will go a long way in helping restore and maintain the balance you seek in your life.

Are you an “Healthy human”, “Superhuman” or a “Ticking Stress Bomb”?

Are you an “Healthy human”, “Superhuman” or a “Ticking Stress Bomb”?

Christmas is is over. School is almost back on. Work schedules will tighten up again. Yes, being busy, overwhelmed and tired has been glamorized! Somehow people learned to get their sense of worth based on what they do, how much they do and how tired they are as a result of their “doing”.

During conversations it´s not rare to hear people “complaining” about how stressed they are. However the complaint quickly turns into a competition for who is juggling more while attaching a sense of pride to it. Typically the winner is the “superhuman” the person who is juggling the most with the least time to eat, sleep and take care of other basic “human” needs.
