Bluebird Greenhouse is Drop Off for Local Cottage Baked Goods

Have you considered creating  multiple streams of income by producing a homebaked or handmade product? 

It’s as easy as a bake sale!!

Food Production is a consumer staple–things we need to have in order to simply exist and survive, no matter the economy.

Test your local market through Bluebird CSA. Our aim– as part of a sustainability initiative– is to encourage local producers! 

We very much encourage you to launch a test product affordably in order to develop a multiple stream of income for you and your family. 

Aim to source locally.   Use Georgia grown sweet potatoes or apples for pies, muffins and breads and sweeten them with local honey.

Use healthy ingredients like whole grains (oats, bran, flax, whole wheat), natural sweeteners (agave, honey, turbinado sugar), dark chocolate, fruits (apples, pears, grapes), veggies (sweet potatoes, pumpkin, zucchini) , healing herbs/spices (cinnamon, garlic, thyme) and nuts (pecans, peanuts).
