EAT THOUGHTFULLY

“According to their website, Patagonia Provisions are 'the products of forward-thinking farmers, ranchers and fishermen who embrace growing methods that regenerate and restore our resources, rather than depleting them.' We recently enjoyed their wild sockeye salmon and fruit + almond bars on a camping trip atop White Rock Mountain in the Ozarks.”
