Guernsey milk

We are now carrying Guernsey milk from  Eby Manor!
Guernsey milk is a premium milk. Rich in Beta-Carotene, A2 Protein, Calcium and Omega3.
Guernsey milk is naturally high in Beta-Carotene, Omega 3, calcium and A2 protein (the lesser known A protein), so the cows don’t need specially formulated feed to achieve these nutritional benefits. It’s pure and wholesome…naturally.
According to the World Guernsey Cattle Federation, Guernsey milk also contains 12% more protein, 33% more vitamin D, 25% more vitamin A and 15% more calcium than average milk.

10 Things to Know About Nuts to You Nut Butter

Here at the Stone Store, we sell Nuts to You Nut butters in bulk and in jars.  They are delicious, locally made in Ontario, and good for you!
10 Things to Know About Nuts to You Nut Butter Inc.

1. 100% Canadian-owned, Nuts to You Nut Butter is located in Paris, Ontario. Started in 1989.
2. All nuts and seeds used in their butters are dry roasted (no oil roasting) and do not contain added salt, sugar or saturated/tropical fats.
3. Nut and seed butters are high in protein and fiber and are a good source of vitamins, and minerals (magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium, copper, potassium, and iron).
4. It is generally recognized that we need fats in our diet. Nuts and seeds contain unsaturated fats that can help reduce cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of heart disease.
5. The oil in their products will naturally rise over time. Simply stir the oil back in. If you wish to reduce oil separation, store in the refrigerator.
6. They are certified organic by QAI, a third party independent organization recognized worldwide.
7. There is a small chance of cross-contamination with other nuts and/or seeds. People with severe reactions to any nut or seed should not eat these products.
8. These nut and seed butters can be used in a variety of ways. In addition to spreads on bread, toast, and crackers, several are good in sauces, dressings, and dips. They make great cookies and desserts. They are also delicious in smoothies and milk shakes.
9. Nuts to You nut butters are kosher. 
10.Nuts to You nut butters are dairy, soy, wheat and gluten-free.

Visit our store at 14 Commercial St, downtown Guelph and see for yourself how much better these nut butters taste than their sugar-filled counterparts you might find in the grocery store.

 From the founder: I have always enjoyed a sense of peace at the beginning and end of each day, taking part in a self care ‘ritual’. Within several years of practicing homeopathic medicine, I was known for hand blending skin care preparations for my patients. These preparations became the template for Tashodi products, and my passion for the health of both people and the planet became the foundation of our business practices. I invite you to bring Tashodi into your daily ritual, allowing you to indulge with a clean, global conscience.
