Summer Is Here!

Today is the northern hemisphere's Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year!!!... as far as sunlight is concerned.

What does that mean for us?

Farmers know that this is the peak of light, but not of heat. There is a bit of a flywheel effect. That is also maybe why it is the First day of summer rather than being the Middle or Peak of it.

It is a great time to unplug, go outside, take in the sun and replenish your vitamin D.

Concerned about getting too much ultraviolet radiation?

  • Sunscreen is a great way to reduce your exposure, especially when the ingredients are ones you can trust. We have that.

  • Aloe Vera plants produce a cooling gel that can soothe sunburnt skin. We have that in produce, as well as bottled in our supplement section.

  • Coconut oil is a great way to moisturise and add a gentle protection to your skin as well. It also makes a great base if you want to create your own sunscreen from scratch, though that topic is fraught with as much controversy as most natural remedies.

However you encounter Summer, we hope you do it well. We are here to help. Enjoy your time in the sun.

See you soon!
