True Love


You are so beautiful in this time of your life cuddled close to your mothers heart. It is a special event that lends itself to a bonding between  mom and child and pet owner and mother dog. We have worked out a schedule in the hot weather as we are raising you indoors away from dirt and grass and environmental hazards.

I bring you to  your mom for feedings between 10:00 am and 12:30 pm. This interaction between all of us is a special unity because we care about all the needs of our animals. The mother dog watches over her children and feeds the babies from 12:30 pm until 9:55 am.

There is a unity here that surpasses most words yet our mother trusts us with her children as they rest peacefully in the air conditioned home. When the little units need more food we bring mom into the adjoining building next to the house where they rest. They enjoy running up to mom as fast as their little legs will take them.

Before anyone receives a new puppy for their loving family just know that the work involved in protection cleanings swaddling and loving is abundant and all we want is for the love they have received here to continue all the days of their lives.

Fresh new life that inspires us all

Fresh Is Best for all walks of life.

High Protein Microgreen

The alkalinity of microgreens is abundant for mineral support.

It is beneficial to eat collard micros for bone strength and strong finger nails.

Radish sprouts add great spice to salads.

Koho salmon topped with arugula is the very best combination.

This week we ate pea shoots on bread and the extra protein in the microgreens sustained us longer than normal. Pea shoots can be used as part of a keto plan. The flavor tastes just like a sweet pea and is a very abundant crop.

Due to the size of this crop you can juice the greens with carrot apple and celery.  Enjoy your greens they will support you with mineral infusion.

We are applying techniques to our farm to recycle all weeds with a no till terms. The walkways are structured with a weed guard  layer using shipping boxes to block weeds and tree mulch placed on top of the cardboard. The underground weeds are decomposing and being recycled for future crops. The cardboard will allow water and air to the under layer for composition.

The boxes that have ink labels on them are for walkways where there will be no vegetable crops. All vegetable beds have decomposed weeds from the last years mulch and weeds for a black soil component.

Another option is to use a weed guard paper that is very useful also. It is important to us to reduce our landfills and upgrade our farms terrain.  Our raised beds have 1/3 weeds like foxtails and soil placed on top and within 3 months the under brush layer has turned into dirt.

Fresh Ideas for a fresh harvest

What I learned from my Malinois

In the morning after sunrise it is time to feed our animals as they see me approach they are excited it would seem to get their breakfast. They jump on each other and snarl as they frolic and play to the food bowl station.

When a dog jumps on a person some would say bad dog you just my clothes dirty. In fact the pets are so happy to be close to me and see me they like to put their paws on me and play because they associate me with their pack. In the wild dogs travel together and honor the chain of command in their family.

Why do the dogs like to sit in a garage connected to the main house it is because they want to be as close to the family as they can be. If we are working outside we are together and they have a mission to be productive.  They want to please while expressing their opinion which is communicating.

We entered duck land together where the mallards are playing in the water and mucking through the wet dirt to gather minerals and experience the earth and all it has to offer. My Malinois saw a pile of duck eggs in the nest so I called him off the pile and he followed me out. He did not know this was a brooding nest.  In honor of his obedience I treated him with a fresh chicken egg for his shiny coat.

It is important that what I say has a purpose and he understood that my words have meaning.  When they are signaled to come to me they always will because I always am happy to reward them and let them know how special they really are.

I find the dogs to be very smart and playful yet they have a certain ability to understand when someone is sad and they will lay still and let me hug them for as long as I need to this kind of unconditional love is very healing and a part of longevity because stressors are deadly and my Malinois are key factor in bring love into my heart again.

May all your pets bring you joy as we still our heart and listen to the heart beat of another when we hug our friends knowing they are here to express the kind of love that is not abundant in this world today.

Fresh ideas for a better tomorrow.


What is in a heart

I attended a social gathering where a stranger approached me whom I had never seen before. She was a friend of the other family  members.  She saw two dogs I had on a leash who greeted her. She began to discuss how much she loved animals.

Her time on earth used to have animals in her daily routine and now she did not have one. As she watched my pets from across the room she said animals are filled with love so people know how to communicate and demonstrate to each other the important things in life.

I have seen from historical writings that animals are used as tools of therapy and I find that people who are depressed or missing their home or loved ones embrace the animal that can bring balance to a definite out of balance home or environment.

How does an animal teach us these things. They speak their own language and say nothing sad or judgmental. If people do not know how to treat others generously maybe they should listen to a pet for life is designed to help others and pets are included in this strategy.

It is good to see families unite for health and celebrate the farm life for one and for all.

Ready for Rhubarb

We have rhubarb in stock now. We are happy to provide Strawberry Rhubarb and Red Canada Rhubarb together in this months line up. If you have a rhubarb lover in your family our product is fresh. Just in time for Fathers Day. Our next harvest will be ready for pickup on June 12. All category purchases are packed together so you can have what you need for a one stop shop.

We are concerned for some who have told us they are having health issues with muscle cramping and we always want you to follow your doctors advice. Naturally speaking rhubarb is high in potassium with vitamin A and C for immunity. Potassium is necessary for many functions and some have had great results in this issue with coconut water so this is now another choice that will taste good and make you feel great.

We do think fresh food is best and are avid cheerleaders for fresh garden foods that make life centered and balanced as we join together at the table in the name of love. We create food for friends so others can find joy in many new ways. We come together so we can make memories and enjoy great food.

We wish you all the very best day

Golden Grain

Heritage or Ancient grains have a history from the 1600’s such as White Sonora Wheat used for tortillas and pastries. The low protein content will give a lighter touch to the finished product. Kamut wheat is a large kernel and should not be associated with gmo it is naturally nutritious and also referred to as Khorasan. The flavor is a mild nutty accent.

In the 1800’s red fife wheat established in Canada will give a rich red hue to your bakery items.  This is a heritage grain.

Between 1930’s -1960 the development of high yield wheat which was considered by some to attend to the world needs of hunger and humanity. Durum wheat arrived following hard red wheat.

The white Sonora wheat is a heritage product that is a high fiber golden grain with a slightly sweet natural taste which is noted to have arrived in the 1600’s era by Christians.

When choosing food to fuel the family and customers who trust people to cook for them we can use specific grains for a happy healthy result and not only flavor. We wish for everyone to feel energetic and happy due to good choices that support longevity and a merry heart.

Soak grains till sprouts are seen blend and bake

Sprouted Spelt

An advantage to spelt kernels used for wheat baked goods and other meal options is that is is lower in gluten than some other wheat counterparts.

When the kernel is soaked and sprouted the vitamin C, B2, B5, B6 are available in greater amounts compared to unsoaked spelt.  We also know that the amount of iron, copper, magnesium and zinc are available in digestion on higher levels.

On our farm we have tried a variety of ancient grains that are sprouted and blended and make into a dough for cooking and the result is a high energy with out the grains slowing us down or making us feel tired after a meal.

Wheat had not been consumed for 5-7 years before this experiment because just seemed to feel like it was not energizing or even appropriate. So we switched to all ancient grains including Khorasan, spelt, emmer, millet, and more and we are pleased with the results and enjoy fresh microgreens with our wheat bread.

The bread is toasted in a pan on a bed of oats so the it is not fully baked and it is not doughy. We want everyone to know that in this experiment the kernels of grains are soaked for 12-24 hours as a minimum to activate the nutrient content as we wrote about in the first paragraph.

If you would like to try this idea we have added sprouted spelt flour at our site in the grain section

Happy Lifestyle we wish for you

Arboretum Springs Farm where we think fresh is best


Fabulous Flour

We are interested in high quality products and the unifine process is being used for products that we carry in fresh ground kernels for the different flour options.

In the movement to save our friends money we have opened the doors to the bulk buy for all consumers. The flours in different protein contents are processing the bran, the wheat germ and the endosperm in one process so all the nutrients are preserved with a no heat production. The nutrients in the flour are important for your health and your customers which makes everyone just feel better. They will keep coming back for more.

Traditionally some equipment smashes of cuts the grain with a heat application. We want you to notice the difference.

Enjoy ancient grains or sprouted grains in your next batch of recipes.

Coconut Chemical Free

Young  coconuts are best if you live where coconut trees grow. The young fruit are common in the states for the young meat and water inside this fruit. The outer husk will turn brown after the outer protective husk is removed to make it easier for the consumer to harvest.

We have found coconuts that are now dipped in vitamin C ascorbic acid which prevents browning  of the tender white husk. The chemical free fruit is available in our shop at for you.

The fruit comes wrapped in a clear wrap and will soon be available in our bulk section and single coconuts are now in our fruit department.


We are honored to carry non toxic tropical fruit which is certified organic also.

This will now mean we can get our minerals and potassium fresh which we think is best.

Fruit Yogurt Parfait
It is always a refresher to enjoy food from the vine and make raspberry yogurt with fresh fruit. If you have fresh from the vine berries  your vitamin C content will be at the highest content.

Plain yogurt is the first choice  for high probiotic factors. Stir in frozen fruit until the color changes from white to pink. As the color changes the yogurt becomes thicker and chilled. We top with granola and a sprig of fresh mint.

This is made without sugar the fruit sweetens the parfait perfectly yet if you choose, add a sprinkle of your favorite enhancer. Little steps towards a happy lifestyle will set examples for generations to come.

If you need help resourcing fresh fruit in your area you may contact our farm headquarters for assistance. We wish you a very happy and healthy day.
