Good Hunt, Good Health, Fresh Harvest

Stories about the plight and life of bees and how they help us have been told often, and we’re glad to have honey from Chapel Hill’s Just Bee Apiary on our store shelves.  Learning more about all that feeds the art of what we sense and what we call home is a gift that keeps on giving.

New in Grocery- Simple Kneads

We are so very excited to bring Simple Kneads gluten-free breads into the store.  They are made from scratch, with love right in Burlington, NC.  The company began when Tristaun LeClaire’s son developed a gluten allergy when he was two years old.  Tristaun began experimenting with ingredients to create his own recipe of satisfying and wholesome gluten-free bread.  The result was some pretty delicious bread that even all of our gluten lovers at the Saxapahaw General Store can get into.  Right now we are...
