We are not located on a busy highway. Customers traveling with their pets are able to walk their pets (and give them a “pit stop”) very comfortably on our quiet country road or in our designated pet exercise area.

+ I picked lots of berries and veggies. What is the best way to store them?
Strawberries: Store uncovered or loosely covered in refrigerator. Wash and rinse. Hull just before serving or freezing.
Raspberries: Remove from container, place on flat trays in a single layer in refrigerator, enjoy within 2 days. It is important not to wash until just before serving.
Blueberries: Best stored in a shallow well ventilated container, they will last 1 week or longer. Wash just before serving.
Fruit: All berries can be placed on flat trays in a single layer and placed in your freezer. Be sure to hull the strawberries first. When frozen, place in freezer bags, seal, label and date. These berries can even be used individually, if desired for special desserts, smoothies, or on cereals all year long.
Vegetables: Peas and beans can be frozen. Wash and cut the ends off snow peas and green and yellow beans. Take the regular peas out of their pods (or have them shelled in our automatic shelling machine)! Blanche the vegetables in boiling water for about 1 minute. Place in freezer bags and draw out the air. Seal, label and date bags and place in freezer. Use throughout the year or on their own, in stir frys, soups or stews.
