  • We went today, July 15th, 2017. Nice day for a drive (we drove 100 miles) and by the time we arrived at about 8:30 AM, we were in a convoy of like minded folks. About 7 miles off the interstate to the...  more »
  • Went to the country store on 8 July 2017 for the 1st, AND LAST, time. Pies in the freezer had a thick layer of frost on them. Bought a 20 oz coke, some fudge (it was OK), and some pepperoni cheese. Op...  more »

  • I always have a great time out here. Field trips for schools are educational and exciting. Love the Apple Butter and fudge.
  • The corn is sprayed w PYRETHROIDS to kill moths, it is a deadly pestiside. Pyrethroid ingestion gives rise within minutes to a sore throat, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. There may be mouth ulceration, increased secretions and/or dysphagia. Systemic effects occur 4-48 hours after exposure. Dizziness, headache and fatigue are common, and palpitations, chest tightness and blurred vision less frequent. Coma and convulsions are the principal life-threatening features. Most patients recover within 6 days, although there were seven fatalities among 573 cases in one series and one among 48 cases in another. Pyrethrum, a nonvolatile hydrocarbon related to kerosene, is a similar insecticide derived from and chrysanthemum flowers. It is a man-made poison that is a copy of two poisons found in plants. Side Effects Pyrethroids: Inhalation: coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, runny or stuffy nose, chest pain, or difficulty breathing. Skin contact: rash, itching, or blisters. Long term effects: disrupts the endocrine system by mimicking the female hormone, estrogen, thus causing excessive estrogen levels in females. In human males, its estrogenizing (feminizing) effects include lowered sperm counts. In both, it can lead to the abnormal growth of breast tissue, leading to development of breasts in males and cancerous breast tissue in both male and females. Neurotoxic effects include: tremors, incoordination, elevated body temperature, increased aggressive behavior, and disruption of learning. Laboratory tests suggest that permethrin is more acutely toxic to children than to adults. Other: A known carcinogen. There is evidence that pyrethroids harm the thyroid gland. Causes chromosomal damage in hamsters and mice; deformities in amphibians; blood abnormalities in birds. Piperonyl butoxide: Long term effects: A known carcinogen. Inert Ingredients: Some known ones include: Xylenes (agricultural insecticides such as Pounce, Ambush 2E and Ambush 50): eye and skin irritation, headaches, nausea, confusion, tremors, and anxiety in exposed humans. In laboratory tests, xylenes have caused kidney damage, fetal loss, and skeletal anomalies in offspring. Methyl paraben (head lice cream rinse Nix; regulated as a drug not as a pesticide): a skin sensitizer, causes eye, skin, digestive, and respiratory irritation. Dimethyl ether (household insecticides such as Flea-B-Gon Total Flea Killer Indoor Fogger and Ortho Total Flea Control 2):. causes respiratory, skin, and eye irritation and depresses the central nervous system. It is also a severe fire hazard. Butane (household insecticides such as Raid Yard Guard Outdoor Fogger V and Off Yard and Deck Area Repellant) : “extremely flammable” and short-term exposure causes irritation, nausea, drowsiness, convulsions, and coma. So, what's the big deal? While pyrethroids may be amongst the least toxic of insecticides, they are an excitatory nerve poison, acting upon the sodium ion channels in nerve cell membranes: by sending a train of impulses rather than a single one, they overload the pathways, blocking the passage of sodium ions across cell membranes; similar in action to organophosphates (which include the now banned DDT); inhibits ATPase, which affects the release of acetylcholine, monoamine oxidase-A and acetylcholine; inhibits GABAa receptors, resulting in convulsions and excitability (and more 'minor' problems such as sleep disorders); known to be carcinogenic; liver damage are highly toxic to insects, fish, and birds;mimic estrogen, leading to estrogen dominant health problems in females and feminizing effects in males, including lowered sperm counts and abnormal breast development; sublethal doses have produced a wide array of abnormal behaviors, including aggression, and disruption in learning and learned behaviors. I had violent responses as described above in lab research feedback. My sibling had near identical reactions: feeling highly aggressive, hyper, dizziness, headache, confusion, brain fog, anxiousness, can't sleep, wired like on speed, lack of concentration and fatigue.
