    Know your Farmer 

    Know your farmer. 

    My farmers' names are George & Michelle. George is 77, and Michelle is, well, younger than her husband. 

    I can't tag them on my Learn To Preserve Facebook page because they don't "do Facebook". Their farm is called Summerhill Farms but they don't have a website, so I can't share it with you. Their farm is located on Highway 3 near Oakland Bay in Mason County, Washington.

    The North Mason Coalition Canning Corps is ready, willing and able, and now we're legal too!

    I live in Seattle but spend a fair amount of time in Mason County, a picturesque, heavily wooded part of Washington State about an hour northwest of Seattle. This mostly rural county is dotted with lakes, divided by rivers & streams, and has enough saltwater inlets to keep us happily eating a variety of shellfish & seafood all year 'round.

    This past March when my husband and I attended the annual NMCCC Crab Feed fundraiser I noticed a little blurb on the paper placemats on our table, looking for people interested in a project called the Coalition Canning Corps.

    You'll need a good source for wild Huckleberries, of course. I foraged mine in Mason County in Washington State but you can buy frozen wild huckleberries online.
