SONG 2018 FALL MEETING

FEATURING: A chance to see what an entrepreneurial spirit can create. Lis Burrows and her husband, Mitch, have planted a nut grove so they can use their own tree products in their value added treats. The trees are small yet but they are living their dream by using their own recipes to make and sell their nut specialties at the Royal Winter Fair and at other special events.
She now supplies specialty stores that feature her nut delicacies too.
