rachel k's bakery menuOooh, grabbed this from Rachel K’s Facebook page … thought yall might want to see some details.

Deliciousness all around.

And Simply Natural creamery … check them out too for local goodness.

When the creamery held its grand opening a few months back, we were there — celebrating and eating ice cream. And buying cream. And buying ice cream. And buying milk. And loving every moment of the dairy goodness that was ours to be had!!

From the Simply Natural Creamery website:

We recently won several awards from the Jersey Cattlemen Association.  In fact, we won every one except one!  Here is what we won:

The Don Wesen Silver Quality Milk Producer Award
for the highest quality and healthiness for a Jersey herd size 100-250.  This award means our cows are the healthiest  and produce the “cleanest” and healthiest milk!

The Myatt-Lutz Cup
for the highest producing Jersey cow in NC for 2014

The Ray Mayne Trophy
for the highest producing 2 yr old Jersey Cow in NC

305 Day Records Award

Carolyn Sleeper : Eastern NC’s Creative Genius at Work

Washington NC has talent. Artistic talent. From potters to painters, the area hosts some incredibly unique creative minds. We’re not talking seagulls and sunsets (nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what we’re talking about here.) These are the innovative voices of the pocosin. The swamp sounds of earth and sky …

While some downtown galleries declined in 2015, others rejoiced in a dance of creative fervor. River Walk Gallery finds itself moving forward ever onward with some of the best Beaufort County NC has to offer.

Carolyn Sleeper, one of the area’s most loved artists, has a new website. It’s still in the creative phase but it already has the makings of a truly fabulous online gallery and information zone. Carolyn’s work is featured at River Walk Gallery right on Main St. in downtown (the original) Washington.
