Sample Sunday - Sun. Jan 18th, 12-5

Our monthly "Sample Sunday" is just around the corner! We
're stocking the shelves and clearing the walkways. What's new and exciting here at Prairiealnd Herbs? Our sample basket is chock-full of moisturizing milk baths - perfect for dry wintertime skin. We have loads of moisturizing body scrubs, body butters and body oils - isn't EVERYONE having dry itchy skin with this weather? This time of year the hardworking farmers in our area send in their wives to pick up our fantastic Healing Salve, to heal their cracked, dry hands and feet. PLUS, we'll have a nice selection of these gorgeous Valentines Candy Bouquets (only $12!)
As well as cute, warm handmade fleece hats, neckwarmers and scarves!
Here's what' s happening at Picket Fence Creamery:

January Greetings from Picket Fence Creamery!
Here's wishing all of you a Happy New Year and hoping you are working toward your 2009 goals! So, what's happening around the farm? Let's see..

After all, January is almost half over, and the days are getting longer. With that in mind, we'll take this opportunity to invite you to break out of your cabin fever mode, and stock up on great foods for the big games at our...
