We are thrilled to announce the addition of Jason Smith, baker extraordinaire and horticultural guru, to the PKF team. He’s lived in the area ten years, and his education and background includes molecular biology, botany and horticulture with a doctorate in the mix. He’s spent decades exploring food and baking. Now he’s bringing all that harmony to PKF as our baker (and CSAers are scoring a taste this week with his gorgeous and delicious cinnamon rolls!). He’s a welcome addition to our team.
P.S. We also scored a helpful industrial 20-quart mixer after we burned out the ones we had and overheated another making these melt-in-your-mouth sweet rolls, all thanks to a real group effort (but that’s how we...roll!).
P.S.S. CSA shareholders will see these cinnamon rolls more often on our available list. Woo-hoo!

Bhikkhu Jayasara (Bhante J) wrote about his time with Powder Keg Farms, Vassa, and our efforts to create new robes as part of monastic tradition. It’s a wonderful article with pictures that is worth the read. We are also delighted Bhante J will be back with us in March for 6 to 8 weeks!

Powder Keg Farms is proud to be a part of the West Virginia Grown program. Farmer/producers may use the West Virginia Grown logo after they have qualified through the WV-Grown Authorization Program. The program assures a farm’s products are of the highest quality and meet the requirements of being a value added product. Value added products may be totally grown or produced in West Virginia (or may have at least 50 percent of the total value added by further processing).
We love our greens, and our customers do too! Watch this fun little video to see how we get them ready for eating.
Just some wholesome food-lovin’ farmers sharing about life on the farm.
