Eat the Season: Strawberry Shortcake
June 18 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$18
There are many good reasons to eat local, in season food:
- Local food is fresh and nutritious!
- It connects us with nature’s cycles and with the place we call home.
- Local food travels fewer miles from the fields to your kitchen table which means lower emissions, energy, and fuel usage.
- The purchase of local food keeps dollars circulating in your local economy.
- When you buy local food, it keeps farmland open which is good for wildlife, ground water, health and well-being, and food security.
Strawberries are in season! Assemble your own homemade Strawberry Shortcake to enjoy with your family on Thursday, June 18. Eat the Season!
Barstow’s build your own Strawberry Shortcake packages will be available on Thursday, 6/18, between 11am-5pm for pick up at Barstow’s drive up window. Strawberry Shortcake kits include four homemade buttermilk biscuits or mini angel food cakes and one cup of sliced strawberries in sugar for $18. Assembly is simple, slice each biscuit in half or lay out your angel food cake and top with fresh local strawberries. What could make it better? We have Maple Valley Creamery vanilla ice cream and Cabot whipped cream available to add on.
Pre-orders are required. Please call 413-586-2142, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery to place your order. We’ll need to know: name of pick up person, phone number, how many kits, angel food or biscuit, and if anyone in your party has an allergy. We also have this handy Google Form where you can place your Strawberry Shortcake order.
Can’t wait for Thursday? Barstow’s has strawberries by the quart, mini angel food cakes, and homemade biscuits in four packs available now! (while supplies last).
