I’m not even really sure what arugula is, but it definitely gives a little kick to Urbandale Farm’s spicy spring mix. The scent and flavor go way above and beyond the norm for salad greens.

Feeling the need to reconnect with friends, take a break from the stress of work, family and boring weekends? It’s time for a Girls Getaway!
With the sun out and the flowers blooming, I feel the need to shake off the winter blues and have some fun with the girls. As “the planner” of our squad, the coordination of travel and activities often falls to me. With my friends now spread across the Midwest, it is important to find a place that is centrally located and easy to get to. This is what led to our latest destination, Lansing, Michigan.
