From the Farm Treats is the inspiration of Susan Berentson and Tami Sakuma, bringing together many years of baking experience, but also farming, marketing, hard work and business acumen.
Assuring their customers of "the best of the valley", the two women have established a 1,500 square foot commercial kitchen at the port of Skagit, along with a smaller location near the junction of Chuckanut Drive and Interstate-5. Future plans include expanding the kitchen to 3,000 square feet.
In addition to preparing their own pies, scones, and shortcakes, they will also make the kitchen available for rent to other farms and businesses in need of commercial grade facilities for the production of value-added food products. In addition to baked goods, they will sell Washington berries--strawberries, blueberries, wild mountain blackberries, blackberries, raspberries and tay berries, and products made from local produce such as jams, jellies, local honey, and salsas.
