We did a lot in 3 days, and there are a bazillion photos...so I'll have to spread my adventures out over 2 posts. And no, I won't share all of the bazillion photos...I so dislike those people who go on vacay then share all 2,345 photos they took, and at the end of the torture, give you a crappy souvenir.
150 growers are part of the Knouse Foods co-op which has a 50-year history of providing the best fruit products. For you city slickers, this means the company is owned by these growers. We were at the corporate headquarters, where one of the 6 Knouse Foods plants are. It is surrounded by farms so their harvest goes straight to processing.
Cherise Harper show us her magic. She styled many of the recipe photos from Lucky Leaf and was working on their new pumpkin pie filling photos the next day. Her toolbox of tools included a dentist's pick....yes, a real one.
Cooke's Frontier and Randi from A Lucky Ladybug show off their mad piping skills.
I'm going to end this post here...after leaving Seattle booty-early and flying across the country non-stop that day, I was pretty much done that night too! Stayed tuned tomorrow for Part 2!
