We’re thrilled to be working in cooperation with Shari and Bryan of Dancing Roots Farm and other community partners to make six varieties of terrific cutting boards available for this holiday season.  They range from something simple (perhaps for second cousin George?) to something deluxe (for that future fiance’?).  Here is a sampling of how they look.  If you’d like to learn more, or better yet, buy a few, please get in touch.

Update – 11.28.13 – Our boards are now available for purchase at either Food Front store and the Portland Audubon Nature Store, in Portland, at the Montinore Estate Tasting Room in Dilly, or directly from us.  Help in spreading the word is welcomed.

Note – Because we have wondered about the pros and cons of wood vs, plastic cutting boards in terms of transfer of bacteria, we have been doing some research.  Contrary to what we and others assumed, we find that the research shows that wood is less likely to transfer bacteria than plastic.  To learn more, try this link:
