It’s a well-known fact that I love Enchanted Acres, the pumpkin patch. I sing their praise each fall over their strawberry jam and caramel apple sundaes! Plus, the owner Shannon is such a great person that it makes it easy to be a cheerleader! This past weekend, Shannon invited me to come out and participate in one of her workshops, Farm to Table Herbs & Butters. This awesome workshop was taught by Mary Lovstad of Farm Girl Cook’n and Farm Girl Weddings!
I’ve known Mary for several years as we are both members of the North Iowa Bloggers. I also know she is an incredibly talented cook, but her knowledge of herbs during this workshop blew me away! I’m not one to cook with fresh herbs. I don’t grow any, I don’t have access to many, and to be honest they have always scared me! Thankfully, with Mary’s help, I’m feeling more confident than ever!
