Over the past few years, we’ve learned how to grow a few things in our central Ohio farm with its crazy weather cycles.

Here’s a peek at our methods.
For those of us who enjoy eggs from pasture-raised hens, the difference is obvious as soon as you crack open that first egg. The yolks are richer, darker yellow-orange than conventional cage-raised eggs. The whites stand up higher and aren’t as runny as the caged eggs. They just plain taste better to most people.

Homemade pita really isn’t as hard as you may think. Plus, when you make them from scratch you can control the type of flour that you use. I have a flour mill and grind fresh whole wheat berries for the wheat flour in this recipe, but store-bought flour works well too, just make sure it’s as fresh as you can get for better flavor.
