What began as a biodiesel fueling station has now grown into a vibrant, community based destination. Step inside our store and you will find unique locally-made products along with everything you need to raise chickens, keep bees, and grow your own food. Instead of the junk food you’ll see at your average gas station chain, we aim to empower you to grow, ferment, and raise your own food.
