February 11th, 2014 by Katy McCoy

It’s February. And we’re biting into the dark, salty, (yet sweet) story behind Jim Queen’s “Chocolate Serenade” confections. (Don’t tell us you’re not interested — we know how much you devour, that you prefer dark chocolate over milk, and that given a choice you say “YES” to salt).

John Foss, meat manager of Chimacum Corner Farmstand is proud of his meat selection. From bison to rabbit, wild boar to Center Valley grass-fed beef, John has developed an outstanding selection of healthy and humanely raised meats that has made our Farmstand the place for Jefferson County meat lovers to shop. Although he tries to stay impartial, when pressed, John admits his personal favorite are the Link Lab sausages and bacon made by Seattle’s David Pearlstein.

Steve “Bear” Bishop is used to fights. But not just any fights.  Bear fights fires professionally, which he has done all over the Northwest since 1976.  He’s a focused and determined individual who clearly knows how to get things done.  One look at his and wife Nancy’s “Alpenfire” organic cidery on Cape George near Discovery Bay and it’s clear.  With rows and rows of perfectly pruned, trellised, and drip irrigated cider apple trees in the backyard of their home and newly finished tasting room,

In anticipation of our Interdependence Day Party (a grand opening of sorts for us), we are rolling out a new line of non-food items, starting with these darling cups made for us by Todd Stephens of Millbrook Clayworks in Port Hadlock. Just imagine this 7oz cup filled with some strong fresh-brewed coffee from either Better Living Through Coffee or Sunrise Coffee?  Perhaps one of Anca’s red velvet cupcakes on the side? The opposite side of the cup has imprinted “chimacum,wa”.  Now doesn’t that solve most all of your gift dilemmas?
