For the past three years along with the change of seasons, September has ushered in a most amazing national food extravaganza ~ The Heirloom Seed Exposition ~ at the Sonoma county’s fairgrounds (Santa Rosa, CA).
2013’s mid-week fair is happening right now! Today’s the final day of three. If you’re anywhere near by and like growing your own delicious fruits and veggies or eating authentic, non-GE / GMO foods…come on by. Tickets are only $10 for adults (over 18). Kids (17 and younger) are FREE.
I’m participating in this year’s fair in two ways:
1) As a volunteer with Sonoma County’s LabelGMOs ~ We have a huge educational booth in the ‘Mexican Village’ area. (Look for our LabelGMOs article in a day or two.)
2) And as an exhibitor in the Hall of Flowers, where a prize-winning selection of our hand-crafted Gourmet Preserves, our 2013 ‘Food Is Love’ Calendar with seasonal recipes, and a gathering of SpringMoon D’Gravure Art Prints (digital photo etchings) with farm and fresh produce themes are on display.
I’m considering participating as a 2014 Heirloom Seed Expo vendor, to sell our preserves and calendars to fair goers. To sell at a public venue like the expo and local artisan fairs, I’ll need to be certified as a California Cottage Food Industry producer.
We already sell direct to family, friends, and others…who savor slow food and hand-crafted pure food products with exceptional flavor and quality. I’m finishing up a catalog of our current preserves selection, designing labels for the newest 2013 creations, and taking product photos with the goal of launching an on-line store by the end of the month. Then, I’ll be designing several 2014 Calendars…so keep us in mind for special gifts and the up-coming winter holidays!
ANNOUNCING: The 2014 ‘Food Is Love’ Recipe Calendar is ready for orders. (See links below.)
