When publicity is everything...

Barkwheats was featured on Channel 5 news last night. It was a fabulous story! So, as a small business owner should do whenever there is press about you, put it up on your website! So I ventured over to their site only to find that they don't upload videos of the 5 o'clock broadcast, and even if they did they wouldn't let me put it up on my website. I could buy a copy of the clip...on VHS...for $40 dollars.



When a small business is in need of publicity wherever they can get it, it… Continue

Welcome WholesalePet.com

Barkwheats will be offered under the distribution of Top Dog Treats and Chews. We're very excited about this opportunity to offer a Maine-made product to stores both inside and outside of Maine.

By-products

While most byproducts are not a good thing in dog food or people food, we're looking to incorporate some things that might otherwise be wasted into our dog food and biscuits. One thing we're going to be offering is a treat made with the leaves of the blueberry bush. A blueberry farm near me (right down the road actually), Highland Blueberry Farm had done a lot of research into the blueberry leaves, trying to find a use for an otherwise mulched or… Continue

About Partners . . .

Partners in Ending Hunger died "death with dignity" in July, 2008 and formally dissolved in August. the work, however, continues with each of you charged with including the challenges of food security for the poor and underserved. Like healthcare, the conversation has to be "Food for All".

Eat Local Foods Meetings?

At the Common Ground Fair I got a postcard about a series of "Eat Local Food" meetings. It was also discussed in the Eat Local roundtable in the Ag Demo area. There was one scheduled for 9:30am in the Augusta area on October 16 and I thought we were told that the location would be posted on the events log of this website when it was finalized (that's what I wrote on my calendar at the time). Anyone know anything about this meeting?

Thanks for any info!

Abundance

It's hard not to feel bombarded with thoughts of scarcity these days. Despite the desire to stay informed of what is happening in our community, our nation and around the world, Chris and I have started to tune out. Small business owners around the country are starting to think twice about their ventures - some are cutting back their payroll in response to this credit crisis while others are simply closing up shop. While there are some very serious challenges facing Americans right now, much of… Continue

The Quest For Ginger

It's quite obvious that with the onset of frost and talk of snow in the mountains, Maine is not the tropics, therefore, we will never be able to have ginger grown in Maine for Barkwheats. We currently purchase organic ginger from Mountain Rose Herbs in Oregon, who source their ginger from India. We have regretted not knowing exactly where the ginger comes from and that it cannot be certified "fair trade." But Renée is now working for Sustainable… Continue
