We are sad to report that Little Red Hen Bakery is no longer wholesaling their products. They need to concentrate their efforts in-house with their upcoming relocation to the old Victoria Bar building. Be sure to support them when you're in Salida! Heads up, this is the LAST few weeks of peaches! Fresh batch in from Sweet Cheeks. Orders are due tomorrow at 4 PM!
We had a blast on our 2nd farm tour of the season last month visiting farms in the North Valley. The day started out at our headquarters in Mosca, and then we visited Nissen Farms, White Mountain Farm, San Juan Ranch, & capped the day with Alpine Valley Mushrooms. We have one farm tour left of the season coming up on Friday, September 29th! Tickets are available on our website or in the online market.
