New Product: Vegan Ranch Dressing!
Love ranch dressing but trying to kick your dairy dependency? You are not alone! Ranch dressing fanatic and recovered dairy addict Kat set out to bring you a suitable vegan substitute. All her non-vegan taste testers agree it's as good, if not better, than the buttermilk version. It's been quite the rage since we released it a couple weeks ago. But don't take our word for it; try it yourself! The Vixen's Vegan Ranch dressing is available at Apple Valley Mishawaka, Sweet Seasons Orchards in St Joe, the Beachside Bakery in Bridgman (of course!), and via our online store. 4oz container is only $2 and larger sizes will be coming soon.
