How would you feel if billions of dollars were spent to get tobacco products in front of your kids? It is happening in stores across our communities. Tobacco companies know that the more kids see the tobacco products and the more enticing and excitement they make it look, the more likely they are to start smoking. As parents we are the first line of defense. It is our job to start the conversation with our kids and help put an end to kids smoking.

I love this about Kettle Ridge Farm and I couldn’t wait to bring my family back for our pancake breakfast and our tree tapping.
