From the Farm

Spring is in the air, and in our step.

Dear Loyal Subscriber,

It’s a busy and exciting time for Gay Lea farmers. As the days become longer and the chill of winter gives way to the warmth of spring, optimism and hope abounds. We’d like to share our enthusiasm for spring with these spring-themed recipes. And help you fill up your Easter baskets with some chocolate-y ideas, and a coupon for our Real Whipped Cream.

Warm Regards,

Gay Lea
