Spiral Your Way to a Carb-Free Life

We’ve all been there. “I don’t want to give up the carbs; they are too good.” “Is there a way I can make my favorite pasta dish healthy?” A spiralizer can do just that. Ever heard of one? These innovative kitchen contraptions can turn fruits and veggies into delicate noodles that are full of vitamins […]

Eating to Reduce Stress

Life gets crazy. We are pulled in so many directions personally and professionally, and it can lead to our least favorite “s word”….stress. When anxiety and worry take over, it’s all too easy to pick up our favorite comfort food and load up on the sugars and starch. Unfortunately, our cravings take more of a […]

Spring Gardening Tips

It’s safe to say that a few of us at Orr’s have a green thumb. We may spend time on the farm tending to acres and acres of some of the area’s finest fruits, but we still love to care for our very own flower beds and cover crops. Now that spring has officially arrived, […]

How to Get Your Kids to Eat Well

As one of the most obese countries in the world, it’s time that we start downsizing waistlines and moving the meter toward healthy habits. How can we make a difference? It can start with our most treasured legacy: our kids. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of children with obesity […]

Happy Pi Day!!

On this day dedicated to the science of circumference, it’s only appropriate that Orr’s highlights one of our favorite circular goodies: pies. We absolutely love to bake, and we encourage you to come by the market to peruse our selection of flavors. At Orr’s we believe a good pie is always in season.  Don’t just […]

In the coming weeks, we’ll have fresh fruits and veggies that come directly from our soil or a trusted local farmer. In anticipation of […]

Pick, Carve, Repeat.

When October began, we went full speed on pumpkin spirit, and we haven’t stopped since. We can’t help ourselves! One post just isn’t enough to spread all the good pumpkin news. Let’s rehash: So far we’ve told you about all the fun at our pumpkin patch, the important message we support from our partner Spookley […]

Pumpkin Spice Makes Everything Nice

We’re pumpkin crazy. Needless to say, it started long before this pumpkin spice business. Who knew a particular collection of complimentary flavors could ruffle so many feathers? It seems most people are either for pumpkin spice or against it. We don’t have an official position on the subject. All we’ll say is if it involves […]

Meet You at the Patch!

Are you as excited about October as we are? It’s a unique time of year because of its connection to farming. How so? Hayrides and pumpkins, of course. You can’t have either without a farm! We’re ready for a month of carving toothy orange smiles and makin’ tracks to the patch. Our pumpkin patch is […]

Fall Fun for Everyone!

Fall’s familiar coziness continues. We’re sipping hot apple cider, snacking on baked goods from the market, and smiling at all the children bounding through the pumpkin patch. As October comes to an end, we look forward to more fun at the farm. After Halloween, we keep the wagon wheels turnin’ with group bonfire hayrides. Grab […]
