One Year Blog Anniversary-Traverse Bay Farms Review and Giveaway

We love fruit around my house, yes my girls actually LOVE fruit!  Just recently for a benefit that we went to for a dear friend, I made up a HUGE fruit bowl, well actually by the time I was done cutting up all of the different varieties of fruit, I had three foil pans full of strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and grapes.  Fruit is always a hit especially on a hot summer day and always goes really well.  Little one will eat just about any kind of fruit that you set in front of her.  The oldest is a little more picky as she only likes certain fruits like grapes, cantaloupe, honeydew and apples, she absolutely refuses to eat anything that has to do with a berry of any kind, she hates strawberries, which sometimes I have to wonder if she is really my kid because strawberries are my absolute favorite fruit.  The reason I bring up the subject of fruit is bringing you a great company to feature for the latest blog anniversary giveaway that has some really delicious, fresh fruit based products and also happens to be a Michigan company-Traverse Bay Farms.  I love the variety of products that they carry; from delicious dried fruit, to healthy fruit juices and fresh made fruit salsa, you can definitely find something that you love here at Traverse Bay Farms.  When I was contacted to do a review for Traverse Bay Farms, I was really excited to be able to talk about a Michigan company, me being from the great state of Michigan myself, I don't get the chance to run across too many companies like this online. Here is little bit of background information:

Traverse Bay Farms is dedicated to providing innovative functional fruit products and great tasting fruit based gourmet products.  They are based in Bellaire, Michigan which is the epi-center region of tart cherry farming.  The company also promotes healthy living and education with online fruit education orchards, this is often referred to as The Orchard of Health.  This unique micro-climate and mineral-rich soil area of northwestern Michigan produces a wide variety of agricultural products.  This area stretching along hundreds of miles of the Lake Michigan shoreline produces some of the world's finest fruit.

Traverse Bay Farms was started by a stay at home mom who was looking for a better way for her family to eat healthier despite being on a busy schedule.  She frequently visited local farm markets to purchase fresh fruits and produce and discovered the amazing health benefits of all of these great fruits.  The idea of starting a gourmet fruit business based on healthy living and convenience took shape and Traverse Bay Farms was born.  Backed by the passion and desire to offer a varied line of fruit-based products, this new company grew rapidly to offer the broadest selection of gourmet fruit and functional fruit products in the industry.  Traverse Bay Farms was the first company to offer convenient automatic delivery of cherry juice concentrate, dried fruit and fruit supplements.  

Traverse Bay Farms quality promise to you is:
*Each of their gourmet fruit products are made from antioxidant rich fruit.  Antioxidants are vital in fighting free radicals in our bodies.
*The driving force behind the "Fruit For A Healthy You" movement is to encourage people to eat more fruit.  Any product bearing the "Fruit For A Healthy" seal encourages the daily consumption of fruit.

Traverse Bay Farms is also committed to "Going Green" and operated their business in an eco-friendly way, purchasing local fruit whenever possible from local farmers to support local agriculture and recycles whenever possible as well.  They have a wide variety of unique products that you don't typically see anywhere.
