Bluefield Natural Products—time-tested ways for today

The Story of Your Food
by Nina Linton

Stroll into Bluefield Natural Products (BNP) and you might feel like you’ve stepped back to a bygone era.

Behind the porch-like screen door, blithesome butchers in tidy red aprons-wielding burnished blades and 45 years of combined experience—welcome customers with wide grins, offering supper suggestions as they s

The Story of Your Food

It’s 5:15 am. Garnet Schellen’s hand fumbles into the murky darkness, silencing the alarm clock’s shrills with a slap. He slides out of bed and into his work clothes—a well-worn set of navy coveralls—before easing out the back door and down a path carved by decades of hurried footsteps.

All’s quiet except for a faint wind w

It’s been a while but Lester Stubbert still remembers the feeling. Without an instrument himself, the musically-inclined child fashioned an impromptu guitar from one of his father’s lobster traps and a Popsicle stick; his aspiring three-year-old fingers plucking the interlaced strings, a resonant warble eme
