Gathering, Growing, Giving

grendelicious_jan_17 GRENDELicious  

GRENDELicious seeks to create further connectivity between our activities and programs, primarily by adding value to food that we have grown, harvested or gleaned locally. Through the GRENDELicious program, participants are engaged in making wholesome baked goods, preserves, ready-to-cook frozen foods, and teas as well as fresh and frozen soups. These activities not only add value to the food which we have grown, harvested and gleaned, but also demonstrate in a hands-on way where food comes from and how it is prepared into a final product. We also believe that the GRENDELicious program is meeting a growing desire of consumers to eat locally grown and prepared food.

GRENDELicious participants also glean tree fruit, primarily apples, each fall. In the past these apples have been processed into applesauce and also into dried apple rings, but we currently press most of the apples to make fresh, delicious cider. In 2015, with the help of funding from the Kassandra Trust, we purchased an apple grinder and press and we have been using it every since to help host a fun, open-to-the-public pressing event where participants, staff, family, friends and passersby can jump in and help out in the pressing. You can check out pictures of our 2015 event by clicking here - APPLE CIDER PRESSING -.
