We have a lot to be grateful for as the holiday season starts. For us at Dr. Cowan’s Garden, we are grateful to our amazing farmers. Beginning this week, we will celebrate and honor them with a series of videos featuring them and their farms. We are grateful to the folks in Upstate New York who carefully and gently process the vegetables that become our powders. But, most important, we are grateful to you and all of our other customers, without whom we couldn’t and wouldn’t exist.
To show our gratitude, we are once again having a holiday sale so you can stock up on your favorite powders. We wish you a joyous holiday season. Use code THANKSGIVING19 to save 25% off everything in stock!
Best wishes from all of us at Dr. Cowan’s Garden.
Tom Cowan, M.D.

Now that you know how to create your own sourdough starter, it’s time to make your first loaf of bread. Make sure your starter has been “fed” consistently for at least a few days beforehand. You will also need some sort of baking vessel, such as a combo cooker or a Dutch oven; a large bowl; bench knife or dough scraper; and a razor for scoring. Once you are ready to begin, make a rough bake plan, either written down or just in your head.
From the beginning of Dr. Cowan's Garden four years ago, we wanted to establish close relationships with organic and Biodynamic farms. Additionally, we have had a vision of sustainable farming that could be realized only by thinking “local” and “small.”
To that end, as we shared in March, we helped Redrange Farm in Pennsylvania achieve Demeter certification.
