Farmers catch their breath at County Fair

Many of this area’s farmers and ranchers are taking a few minutes to catch their breath at the County Fair, realizing that school is just around the corner.

Canning and freezing are also kicking into high gear now as the field-grown tomatoes, fresh roasted chiles, green beans, Palisade peaches and Olathe sweet corn are getting us started at DeVries Farm.

Gluten-free morning glory muffins, organic carrot cake and double fudge brownies are among the specialties found at Healthy Baker.

Pork sausage is available in several flavors: German, breakfast and sweet Italian. Using your crock pot for a savory roast lets us enjoy an easy family meal.
