Farm-Fresh: What does that truly mean?
Back Porch Talkin' Country Exchange is located on our family farm.  
"Farm-fresh" is just that.
We gather our eggs, herbs, and fresh vegetables 2-3 times a day.  
So, rest assure we do not use the term "Farm-Fresh" as an advertising gimmick.

Do you ship eggs?
Sorry we do not ship eggs.  They are sold only in our physical store.

BPT grab bags are filled with brand new, sealed-in-the-package, closed-out, and
clearance stock.  Grab bag retail values can be up to 3 times the amount paid.
Our grab bags ARE NOT cheap novelty items or plastic toys.

Purchasing used Items:  Is the photo of the actual used item?
YES! Unlike other sites, we don't believe in using internet sourced photos for our used goods. We photograph all used goods in house.
Simply put, "What you see is what you get."  

Are Bleu's Cookies really that fresh?
Yes!  Aunt Carolyn wouldn't have it any other way.  Every "cookie" is home-made and baked in our kitchens upon receipt of a paid order, never stocked or frozen.
Farm-raised chickens and fresh eggs are the main ingredients in Bleu's Cookies.  
Our chickens are family, feed only home grown greens, grains and natural herbs to help protect their immune system.
Venison is locally procured and professionally processed.
Salmon, in season, is caught by Uncle Bill on his yearly trips to Lake Michigan.
Yes, when we say fresh...we mean it.
