Mar 29, 2010: Foodportunity and Open Farm Photos

Events

Last week was busy so we didn't have time to post. This week is slow and rainy so we're posting about last week. On Monday the 22nd we headed into Seattle to give out samples of smoked and pickled oysters to foodie folks at a networking event called Foodportunity. We brought along lots of wood to decorate the table and used the big oyster as a prop.

Mar 31, 2009: Rain on the Parade

Events

Saturday was cloudy and rainy... a good day for vampires but not for the rest of us. And only a few hardy souls braved the drizzle to attend the first ever Open Farm Day.

Kate and Rick picked mussels and oysters for a big family dinner. The NEXT open farm day is Saturday, April 25th from 10:30 am to 1 pm. This time we're going to set...
