Coming Soon! Herbed Pumpkin Seeds!

Hi everyone!

It is officially Fall and we are working on our seasonal products.


One of the popular items we carried last year was our herbed pumpkin seeds. We sell them in a little bag designed to munch on while you walk around and visit other vendors.

We hope to have the first patch ready in the next two weeks.


Did you know that pumpkin seeds have a lot of healthy properties to them?


Pumpkin seeds or pepitas, also contain a number of a vitamins and minerals, including manganese, magnesium and iron, and have a variety of health benefits, from protecting bones to treating arthritis. Studies have also shown that pumpkin seed oil can reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), or enlarged prostate.

Just another good reason to snatch up some of our yummy herbed pumpkin seeds when you can. They are seasonal only and quantities will be limited!

Join us for this series with Troy Huffaker of DTL Herbs Ltd.   Troy has been growing herbs for over 25 years.  In 2010, he and his wife Diann started their business, DTL Herbs Ltd.  They sell herbs and herbal products at farmers markets and craft shows and in the off season they teach people how to plant, care for and use their own herbs.

Herbs provide beauty and fragrance in the garden, and can enhance the flavor and quality of our foods, provide a healthy alternative to salt, and have traditionally been used for medicinal purposes.  Many herbs can be easily grown in the home garden or in pots in the kitchen helping to stretch our food dollars.

Michigan State Fair

Hi everyone!

Wow, it has been a crazy busy past week for us! On very short notice we decided to be part of the Michigan State Fair this past weekend. This was the first time they invited vendors from the Farmer Markets to participate. So, we raced like crazy to gear up for the event!

We introduced a couple of new products just for this weekend. We hope to continue to carry them to some regular farmer’s markets as well.


We had our latest product, Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Spread available in both dry packet form and ready to eat containers.

We finally got our Finishing salt to where we like it. This will probably be a regular item of ours. People have asked for it and we now have it available.

2013-09-01 13_42_16

We enjoyed the Michigan State Fair and had a successful 4 days! Now we are wiped out and need a  little down time!
