Hi there, I’m Dorothy
I have a small farm in Minnesota where I grow berries, tomatoes & peppers.
We also have a commercial kitchen on the farm where all of the fresh produce is made into jams, spices and drink syrups.
You will find a lot of DIY and “how-to” information on this site, from growing food in pots on a balcony to cooking low carb meals to making your own spice blends. Enjoy!
