Grill IT!

This is so easy.

Shuck the corn
Brush on Zoye Oil  Zoye is healthier than olive oil, has higher temperature tolerance (won't burn or flame the grill), and is made in Zeeland, Mi. 
Sprinkle on the Tuscan Blend Spice Mix  You can get this from us or the Spice Merchant downtown Saugatuck. (Tuscan Blend is also great for mixing with oil and using it for dipping Seedy Salt Bread or Ciabatta.)
Grill IT  until corn looks like the picture.

You can thank cookie lady Renea for this one.

“So that’s what real milk tastes like”

I was first attracted to the glass bottle but after trying the milk and knowing about the  farm I’m hooked. Hilhof has 34 Holstein dairy cows that are 100% grass fed, antibiotic-and hormone-free. Which means their milk is much higher in Omega-3, CLA, and Vitamin E. Connie and William Hilhof even deliver the milk themselves in a truck covered in cow spots. We carry quarts and half gallons of fat free skim, 2 percent, whole milk, and half quarts of cream (great for whipping).
