Sugar Shack

Ok, so I'm not just addicted to chocolate. I'm addicted to sugar in general. To my luck, we became friends with farmer Jonnie Haas. Not only was this a winning new friendship because of his bounty of smiles, but also because he farms sugarcane that apparently is GOOD FOR YOU! Raw sugarcane juice seemingly has all the opposite health effects of processed sugar. It prevents against tooth decay, it's anti-cancer, alkaline forming, hydrating, good for colds and weightloss, etc etc etc.  But don't trust me - google it.

Jonnie took us up to his farm, aptly named Sweet Farms. He showed us around his jungle, the site of his soon-to-be-home, his chicks, his legume harvest, his rolling hills of farmed produce ranging from moringa, papaya to peanuts, and best of all his sugar shack where we made so much delicious juice!


"The key to good sugarcane juice is lime, ice and friends."

Be sweet. Smile more. Drink raw sugarcane juice.
