Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog.
I am Herma Van Garderen, wife to Case and mother of 8 children and 1 daughter in law.
I am excited to tell you about my new hobby, which I started earlier this year in March.
I started stone milling our own grains; Spelt and Hard Red Spring Wheat. My first customer was Homestead Bake Shop which had opened just shortly before in Fort Macleod.
However, my husband was worried we would never go through all our grain so I looked for a different ways to promote and sell my products.
I talked to several store owners in Lethbridge and they all encouraged me to go to farmers market with my product. So I did !!!
Since June I have been a vendor on the Saturday market and I love being there!
I have met so many wonderful people and feel blessed with the customers who come back and are happy with my different assortment of flours!
Thanks to Sharon Elizabeth Design, I have a beautiful flyer on my table and my very own website!
By means of this blog, I hope to share my thoughts, questions from customers, nice experiences and also post some of my recipes.
