January, 2021 - We have increased our COVID-19 protocols. Order pick-ups only at this time. Our front door is locked and we have suspended our counter services for the time being. Please knock and be wearing a mask to pick your order up. We're happy to schedule a pick-up time for you. It's a small reception area, so only one person in the front at a time. Orders can still be placed by e-mail, and inquiries made by phone. These enhanced protocols are in an abundance of caution to help protect you, us and the general public, as we all work together trying to flatten the second wave curve. Thank you for your understanding and please stay well.
