Flat Creek Farm
Kettle Falls , WA Julie & Chad Butorac
SEASONAL PRODUCE, GRASS FED BEEF & PORK
"One of our great passions is FOOD! Not just any food either, but those that are rich, flavorful, and make your body feel good. So much of what is mass produced and then sold at grocery stores today is unhealthy and doesn't even compare with the flavor of home grown food. Have you ever tasted a strawberry right out of the garden and then bit into a storebought one? The difference is like night and day! Sadly, this is the direction that large scale agriculture has taken our food. Our hope is to bring to you great food - rich in flavor and free of all the shortcuts that diminish much of the fruits, veggies, and meats that fill grocery stores today."

ORGANIC & FAIR TRADE COFFEE, MIXED FRUIT
Overlooking the Columbia River just south of Kettle Falls you'll find the home of Riverview Orchard and Crandall's Coffee Roasters. John & Janet Crandall grow acres of fruit trees that keep them busy through the entire season- starting with cherries and apricots and swiftly moving into their main crop, peaches, as the summer heats up. They finish the season with Apples and an extensive collection of Pear varieties.
As if they're not busy enough, they somehow find time to roast fair-trade, organic coffee too! You can find their coffee served fresh in our cafe or buy it by the pound in our bulk and grocery aisles.

HAND-CRAFTED LOCALLY BREWED BEER
Rice, WA Joe Barreca Barrecavineyards.com
SULFITE FREE WINES
"When I moved to Rice, Washington, in 1986, I got some grape plants from a friend and started a vineyard. I discovered that I loved growing grapes. You make wine out of grapes because they get twice as sweet as most fruit. Not only do you not need sugar, it is considered very bad form to add it to grape wine. Over the years I have come to believe that refined sugar is a poison. I also found that nearly all of the chemicals often added to wine, or used to control pests and weeds in the vineyard are both unnecessary and poisonous. So I learned to grow grapes and make wine organically and without sulfites."
