Thanksgiving Day is right around the corner, and we know it takes a lot of effort to prepare this highly anticipated meal. We want to help you fill your table with some help from Butler County businesses.
This unique farm market has an array of foods including produce and Amish goods. Their pumpkin cookies would be a welcome addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table, we promise! Each week Barn-n-Bunk has fresh Amish bread delivered. Tip: The bread is very popular, so they recommend pre-ordering! This is also a great place to secure a selection of pies. Apple, blackberry, pecan, pumpkin and key lime are just some of the pie offerings.
Bonus! Barn-n-Bunk offers a Thanksgiving Day buffet from 11:00AM – 3:00PM if you’re looking for a cooking-free get together.
The Spicy Olive wants to help you prepare for your best Thanksgiving ever! Mark Saturday, November 14th from 10AM – 4PM on your calendar. Thanksgiving food samples will be available, and they’ll have recipes for you to take home. Any olive oil or balsamic vinegar you purchase will be discounted 10%! UnCorked at the Spicy Olive will be sampling wines to accompany your meal.
A Warm Cup of Holiday Cheer
After everyone has finished their main meal and you’re prepping round two (desserts), brew up a pot of seasonal La Crema Coffee. La Crema has two holiday lines, Christmas Tree and Winter Deer. Some of the tasty flavors include Tis the Season Salted Caramel, I’m Dreaming of a White Chocolate Christmas, Happy Holidays Hazelnut, Winter Solstice and Joy Joy Joy! You can pick up La Crema coffee at their roasting facility, Sara’s House, Jungle Jim’s or Celebrate Local just to name a few!
Fill the Kettles and a Growler
Starting the holiday season by giving back is a great way to go. DogBerry Brewing wants your help filling the kettles! Bring your non-perishable items to the brewery to help local organizations in need. For each 100lbs of non-perishable food or donated items each weekend, they plan to knock $1 off growler fills for the remainder of that weekend. Your dad will thank you when you have his favorite DogBerry craft brew on the table this Thanksgiving.
