  1. When looking at your post, I was taken to a non secure website which I did not want to open. When I see a website that does not have a security certificate, it always worries me that I might be redirected to a site that was not the intended destination. So you might want to check your links to make sure they are working the way they should

    1. My sincerest apologies for your experience. I support not clicking any links with a little robot stating a security risk. I seek to reach out to my audience by posting any updates/technical announcements through my Facebook Page at Please send me a friend request, and you will be updated. Also, I appreciate any support by email at As I do continuous test runs checking my pages through Windows, Apple, Android, and others. Thank you for your notification. 

  2. Hi John. Thank you very much for giving us all these resources. I like that you have been able to test them yourself and can now recommend them to us. I have trying some platforms but most of them have felt as scams so I haven’t continued using them. But finding your site has excited me because you talk honestly about all these tools.

    1. Thank you for your support and feedback. I feel everyone deserves to get the most up-to-date information to eat healthy, get involved with our environment, and support protecting our environment. 

  3. What a great website this is. I came across it during an online search and arrived at it on the FAQ section for some reason, which on its own didn’t make much sense, however a trip to the home page made more sense and what a great idea you have got with this website

    Judging by the fact you are looking to help and support Californian farmers, I take it means that you are californian and that by putting this website together, every business featured gets a more leveraged exposure, which means that when its shared with others, every business will get to know what others do and so you get  kind of an instant community, which also becomes a trusted one too, so that is an awesome idea.

    THe 3 Easy Steos page is awesome and makes planning a meal easier, as you say cooking can be fun for sure. I have definitely taken some ideas from this and enjoyed reading it.

    1. Thank you very much for your feedback. As a Californian, I have lived and drove around the state for six years. There is so much to see for one lifetime, and I am still meeting new people on the road. As a resident, I value the effort of our hard workers, members of the farmer’s markets, and multiple agencies providing us fresh foods. I hope to benefit everyone following my simple recommendations who shares my interest in enjoying food while helping our farmers and our environment. 

  4. Hi John.

    I am a big fan of reliable sources, but as you say it might be little tricky to find them. Thank you very much for giving us all these information. It is important to higher our level of being cautious theses day, when there is so much misinformation. I appreciate  that you have tested them yourself and are now able to recommend them to others. I have tried some programs but almost all of them are scams. But when I found your site it felt that this guy I could trust and  you talk honestly about all things.

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback. I will continue my efforts to do my best to connect with people who share my interest. Every week I will be announcing upcoming projects for anyone to gaze at a larger picture about our food in California, our farmers, and farmers markets. Visit my Blog and Track It Page.
