We believe in supporting our community and partner with many local vendors. Anytime you visit Sunny Bridge you are sure to find our shelves stocked with foods sourced from within 300 miles of the store—including meats, raw milk and honey.
We are very proactive in supporting our farms and businesses. Our relationships with these farmers and producers are at the very heart of Sunny Bridge.
There are SO many reasons to choose to buy local…
Local food is fresher and tastes better than food shipped long distances from other states or countries. Local farmers can offer produce varieties bred for taste and freshness rather than for shipping and long shelf life. Additionally, since local food doesn’t have to travel very far it is also great for the environment. Short distances mean reduced carbon dioxide emissions and packing materials.
By supporting local business you are contributing to the community by keeping the money you spend in our area. You are also supporting small, family-owned farms and businesses and enabling them to thrive. Knowing where your food comes from and how it is grown or raised enables you to choose safe food from farmers who avoid or reduce their use of chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics or genetically modified seed in their operations.
Passionate and driven, Nic Balzer and partner Robert Ryan continued their plans to start Queen City Hemp, a marijuana-related business, even before the drug was legalized in their home state of Ohio.
Believing in the healing powers of hemp, cousin of marijuana, they continue to receive miraculous stories of restful sleep, stress and anxiety relief. Another major benefit that many have found is pain relief. Numerous studies have suggested that CBD interacts with receptors in the brain and immune system. Because CBD targets these receptors, it can provide relief from chronic pain, such as back pain or lingering pain from injuries that occurred in accidents or sports. The same elements of CBD that promote pain relief also provide anti-inflammatory effects.
They believe there is a reason why CBD has become so widespread in the health and wellness industry. And what they believe has become true for so many – it is a natural means of treating many common ailments and providing some much-needed relief from pain and inflammation without the side effects of many typical drugs and over the counter remedies.
