WHAT'S HAPP'NIN ?!
It is that time of year. There are lots and lots of glorious summer veggies & fruits to stock up on from our farms. You can savor summer all year—just can, freeze, or dehydrate your haul. There is an independently special feeling knowing that all of those local farm fresh nutrients are packed away in each jar, just waiting for you to enjoy. Take some time to preserve all that summer goodness, come January, you'll be so glad you planned ahead! There’s no doubt that being able to offer fresh-tasting, home-canned, or preserved foods for your family and friends to enjoy throughout the year is definitely one of life’s priceless luxuries.
