Dog Treats and Pickles? Yup you read that right…

Moosehead Lake- Greenville, Maine

This weekend we will be traveling with our pack to the International Sea Plane Fly-in in Greenville, Maine on Moosehead Lake. We will be selling some of our living inspired barnhouse brand products at the local crafts fair. This is our first ever crafts fair and we are very excited to get started! The biscuits we have packaged for the fair are our Original Recipe Barnhouse Biscuits which is a peanut butter and honey based dog treat and our Tumbledown Treat which is our trail mix recipe with oats, cranberries, peanuts and Maine Blueberries. This treat is named for Tumbledown Mountain in Weld, Maine.

Weld, Maine

We hiked this mountain last summer with our lab, Boomer. We created this treat as an energy biscuit for active dogs. The hike was fairly tough and Boomer did great! He was so happy to make it to the top and find a beautiful fresh water pond that he was able to swim in. It was quite the reward for such a strenuous hike. We will be bringing two other types of biscuits with us as well; we couldn’t travel to Moosehead without our Moosehead Muffins which is a take on a chocolate chip cookie for dogs. We make our original peanut butter and honey treat and add carob chips for an authentic look! The carob is safe for our furry friends and they absolutely love these special treats.  And lastly because Fly-in happens but only once a year, we will have a special limited time Fly-in Recipe, a peanut butter and carob chip with banana treat. (Dog bone and airplane shapes just for this occasion)

We are also going to be selling our homemade pickles. The varieties we will have with us include our original “Simple Dills”, which is a kosher style pickle (basic garlic, onion and dill based recipe), our “All Dressed” pickles which is our mustard seed recipe, lighter dill flavor than the originals. We will also have a spicy pickle with us; called “All Dressed and Hott” these are a spicy version of the mustard seed recipe. Lastly we will have the “All Dressed and Slightly Sweet” which is a version of the mustard seed recipe that has a hint of sugar for a slightly sweeter and tangier taste. We have pickled green beans as well. The “Dilly Beans” are garlic, onion and dill based recipe, while my personal favorite, the “Spicy Beans” are dill based with a kick! These are great just as a snack or a garnish for Bloody Marys. Pair a couple of these beans with an “All dressed and Hott” Pickle and a slice of lime, and you’ve got yourself an amazing Bloody Mary for sure! All of our pickles have hang tags featuring photography from Kelsey Martel Photography. Her cupola series was shot especially for our business cards and product labels. We are excited to share her work with our customers!

Here’s some sneak peaks of the products we’ll be featuring this weekend! Hope to see you there! Stay inspired!
