Rural Mom Farm Fresh Product Pick for March:
Made in America, eco-friendly and a great conversation starter – I am in love with Cardboard Safari for all these attributes and so much more! Received a Bucky U.S. Flag Print Cardboard Deer Head to hang in the family room but two seconds after opening, my oldest son claimed dibs for his room… but I agree, he totally wins as it’s a fabulous match with his wall coloring, interest and decor.

Farm Fresh Flower Pick for March:
Yellow flowers always make me smile! This cheerful color flower is used as a symbol of friendship, joy, hope and in some cultures, success.
If you want to be a friend to nature this month, consider planting Milkweed (our farm fresh flower pick this month pictured.) Milkweed attracts Monarch butterflies and is key to their future survival as it’s what Monarch caterpillars rely on for their source of food.
Enjoy the beautiful signs of Spring heading our way!
