Savor the Southwest – Safely!

Our full motto is: appreciating, nurturing, and using the products of the Southwest.

We harvest in a sustainable fashion and encourage you do the same.

Your food safety is important. Many Southwest plants have very specific steps to follow to insure health. From time to time we will post those harvesting guidelines in our blog. Some foods or food additives come with phobias, urban myths, and otherwise poor information. Again – we want you to eat safely!

Over time we are adding to our articles on foods and food additives that may be of concern to our readers and the links to them are coming here: (as soon as we can rebuild)
