(Pullman, Michigan) When we run low on oatmeal and rice, we head for Country Life Natural Foods at 641 52nd Avenue and buy 100 pounds of steel-cut oats and 50 pounds of short-grain brown rice and head for home. Oh, and one of us, that would be me, usually buys what Natalie calls “food toys.” You know: vegan cookies and frozen tofu treats and the like. Hey, Pullman is three counties away—in Allegan County—so we have to make the drive worthwhile.
But it is worthwhile when you consider the wholesale prices we pay for the oats and rice. We enjoy the drive to Country Life up Blue Star Highway and then east on 109th Avenue to downtown Pullman and then a bit beyond to 52nd Avenue. Look for the Country Life sign on the right, and you can’t go wrong. But be prepared for a long winding drive on a gravelled road through the woods. Just when you think you’re lost forever in darkest Michigan, there it is: Country Life Natural Foods. We always call ahead to be sure they have our oats and rice in stock, and you should too by phoning: 269-236-5011. And then do as we do and take a leisurely drive home on the backroads of Allegan, Van Buren and Berrien counties. Life in Michigan is good and even better when you have a driving need for oatmeal at Country Life Natural Foods.
