What are grow kits?

These grow kits contain 6.5lbs of certified organic mushroom mycelium (the root like structure that mushrooms grow out of), enough to grow 3+ pounds of mushrooms. To use these kits, just pull the cardboard circle off the back of the kit, mist it 2-3 times a day and you'll have your own crop of fresh oyster mushrooms in 5-10 days. All kits come with a misting bottle, humidity dome and detailed directions in the top of the box.

They have 30 acres of wildflowers and forest and make products out of ingredients from their hives and other local apiaries. Finding Avital's Apiaries at the Taste NY Store at the New York State Fair, I was excited to see a New York made lip balm made without plastic!

Their propolis lip balm is made from locally gathered propolis. Propolis is made from the resins from trees and flower buds collected by bees and mixed with enzymes made by bees, forming an antimicrobial in the hive, helping keep the bee hive healthy. Outside the hive, propolis is prized ingredient is used for its medicinal and antioxidant properties in various products.
