Food Disconnect

August 26, 2015 Joe Ornato

The hot weather has brought some refreshing times near the pool with family and friends.  Of course, food and drink around the pool are part of our custom here at The Ornato Homestead.  During this past weekend I was chatting with my brother-in-law about food, coffee, organic vs. non-organic, and we stumbled onto the topic of the Harmony Organic Dairy that I offer in small lots.
