I have never been to the Pacific Northwest and I can’t believe it has been missing from my life for this long. I am seriously trying to talk my husband into packing up our things and moving to Oregon or Washington, but I doubt there is any chance of that happening. You guys that live there are truly lucky to wake up to that beautiful scene!
Continuing on from the day before at the Amway Center for Health, where we learned how the supplements are made, tested, and why we need them, we flew private jet to Oregon (In case you are wondering, as did my teenage brothers, the plane was a G5).
From there we were headed to Trout Lake Farm in Washington where one of Nutrilite’s certified organic farms is located. This farm is one of several that grow the ingredients used in the Nutrilite supplements – once again, another reason why they are the number one selling supplement brand.
On the drive to Trout Lake Farm, we stopped at the beautiful Multnomah Falls in Oregon, a must-see stop if you are in the area. Amanda (kevinandamanda.com) and I just had to take a photo in front of the scenery.
The view at Trout Lake Farm is breathtaking, it would be an amazing job to work there! Many of the items that go into the Nutrilite supplements are grown here organically. They take immense pride in their organic and sustainable farming practices (Fun fact: Did you know that unlike other supplement makers, Nutrilite has the ability to trace your vitamins through the lot number on the package to exactly which of their farms each ingredient came from?)
Just look at that view!
This is a field of Echinacea, which is used in some of Nutrilite’s supplements. They aren’t just pretty to look at, the plant and root provide immune support. An interesting part about the sustainable farming concept is the “interaction and diversity of the people, animals, plants and elements of the earth working together in perfect balance.” So for instance, to control certain pests, ladybugs by the buckets full have been spread across Trout Lake Farm. This is one of many examples of how Trout Lake Farm encourages nature’s own system of balance by providing habitats and food for natural enemies of pests.
So that means creatures like this bee are welcomed!
What a fabulous experience this was, definitely an exclusive behind-the-scenes look. If only everyone could experience in person how Nutrilite goes from seed to supplement then they would be in every home! But through the pictures and information I’ve shared with you, I hope you take the initiative to check out these supplements that will benefit your health. (Stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway, three winners will receive one months supply of Nutrilite’s most popular supplement – DoubleX)!
