As wonderful as the holidays are, they can also be very stressful because of increased to-do lists! To help manage the crazy, Clark Company and its employees use Dumpling for their personal shopping needs.

Talley Farms Fresh Harvest
A wonderful way to support your local ag community and promote health amongst your family and friends is to subscribe to a fresh produce box.
A few weeks ago, our own Liana Rostro wanted to do both and subscribed to the Talley Farms Fresh Harvest produce box. She says, "I had no idea how delightful it would be to receive fresh produce on my doorstep every two weeks. I was impressed with how fresh and beautiful the produce is. We are definitely eating more fruits and vegetables, and I can not recommend the boxes highly enough! It is very reasonably priced and would make an amazing gift!"
Talley Farms offers pickup and delivery as well as shipping! With options ranging from $28 to $50 per delivery, they are easy on the wallet too! Experience locally-grown produce direct to your home: https://talleyfarmsfreshharvest.com/
The Groves on 41
When it comes to olive oil, freshness is key. Freshly pressed olive oil not only tastes better—it's better for you. Have a healthier and tastier 2023 with locally produced extra virgin olive oil from The Groves on 41!
Owners Karen Tallent and daughter Jennifer make sure their oil is cold pressed to preserve the olive's flavor and antioxidant properties. They use a centrifuge process to spin oil from a pummeled paste that includes the olive meat, skin, and pit. The end result is truly delicious!
