Scissortail meets Sloth

Excitement is bubbling over in new possibilities collaborating with Sloth Acres. Not only do they grow the most beautiful microgreens (that’s sprouts to old hippies) but they have served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan with our army. We are impressed.

The research says microgreens hold nutrients that are c. five times more powerful than the fully grown plants. The research on probiotics found in fermented foods links improvement to digestion, right. Probiotic benefits have also been found to improve immunity, cognition, the endocrine system and one’s state of mind. Now, combine Scissortail Provisions ferments with Sloth Acres microgreens and the protection of our precious veterans and we may be on the path to a new world. At least we can have a healthy start.

PS – if you haven’t seen the new Edible Tulsa issue check out pages 10 and 11 for a look at how they see Scissortail Provisions. We are honored! Teri Fermo is beautifully featured, there are great recipes (Mrs Townes loves the kale salad), and beautiful photos exude the good energy of Barry and the crew.


9.11.15 It’s a beautiful morning. Tomorrow’s market will be invigorating. We will get up by five a.m. and jump into our comfy and warm layers. We hit the ice machine, pack up at the shop, set up on Cherry Street, and share kimchi shooters with our neighbors with wishes of good health and prosperity. Then we wait. We are so excited to see our favorite boys, the beautiful little ones with their parents and grandparents, and especially  former students. Amazing.
Then there are the repeat customers that come bearing our empty jars in trade, and to buy their favorites or try our latest creation. Amazing.

And new folks brave in trying something new, learning, experiencing and being as enthusiastic as our rowdiest ferments. Amazing.

Edible Tulsa September/October 2015 1st anniversary edition – “The Alchemy of Pickling: Fermentation is magic in the hands of Scissortail Provisions” by Sarah Szabo and photos by Carlotta Tiews. Amazing.

We are amazed and honored. Thank you for believing in us.
