Covid19 – Are we done yet?

Picture of bench on a flagstone walkway

It’s kind of hard to believe that we’ve been dealing with Covid19 now for well over six months.  It’s also strange to think about how we took for granted going to the grocery store, concerts, or sporting events, much less work without all of the current precautions.  We’ve somewhat survived quarantine by staying home (well,…

4 Things We Learned From Our First Big Order

Last week we had our first big order; and by big order, I mean huge order. We planned, baked, packaged, and delivered one thousand cookies all in under a week. We also both have full-time jobs outside of ASC, and we had a full market as well. So to say the least, it was a…

We don’t need to be "The Best"

No, we don’t. And it’s plain and simple, on several accounts.

Farmers’ Market Etiquette

This post sounds a little intimidating, or perhaps snobby? Yet, farmers’ markets can actually be a snapshot about people and our society in general.  The good and the not so great!  Most of the time it is a pleasure to be a vendor at a market. People are attending because they want to be there…

Why are we Simple?

First things first! We love baking homemade cookies and brownies, along with selling and developing a relationship with our customers, even if it is only for the moment and a single transaction.  Something about real-time, personal interaction with humans, and of course, the non-human, four-pawed kind, is actually pretty special.
