Get Ready for the 4th of July!

We are looking forward to celebrating our nations independence this 4th of July!  And to get ready, we hope you’ll come by and visit our booth at the Orofino Farmers Market on July 3.  We will have some strawberries, rhubarb, lettuce, Swiss Chard, beets, carrots (I hope), spinach, broccoli, and artichokes… yes, artichokes from our own garden.  Will also have our gluten-free raw granola, almonds, and honey from Canada.  As a special treat, Jolene will not only be playing some patriotic songs on the harp, but she has made some pies for sale (strawberry/rhubarb & apple) to raise money for college.  Hope to see you there!

David Stottlemyer – Summer Hill Farm

For market June 26.  Summer Hill Farm will be having spinach, lettuce and spring mix.  We should also have a very limited supply of beets and, perhaps, some Swiss chard.  Strawberries and rhubarb should round out our produce section so be sure to check out our gluten-free raw granola and almonds along with our raw honey from Canada.  See you at the market.
