MORNING BUNS!! Some of you may remember we made a batch of Morning Buns several years ago… Well, this batch will be even better than the last! We’ve changed things up a bit… Our MORNING BUNS are our first 100% naturally-leavened pastry! Think of them as a hearty cinnamon roll with a crushed pecan filling, and a delicate vanilla glaze. Our children, literally, could not stop eating our final trial batch! Each bun is nearly 5 oz and is sold individually. Still determining price…

Will Pardee Arts of Fremont
My name is Will Pardee and I’m quadriplegic due to a diving accident in 1981. After I returned home from the hospital I was bored with my limited activities and began to try drawing with my mouth, I was excited to learn that God had given me a unknown talent and after a couple years of practice I began displaying at art shows.
I draw a variety of subjects including nautical, animals, country and floral prints and also sell notecards. My drawings are done in pencil for black and white prints and I do add color to some with colored pencil. I have enjoyed drawing over the years and meeting new people along my journey.
Stop by my booth this week, I’ll have some special sale items!
Provision Family Farms of White Cloud
We will be at market with a full selection of our meats.
