Shirley’s Scribbles – Christmas Planning 2020

What a wonderful fall! I enjoyed every weekend flippin’ pancakes on the porch at Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm.

It was great to be outside watching and listening to the kids playing, connecting with old and new pancake lovers and spending time “working” with family and staff. Brenda manned the taffy and cotton candy to the delight of kids young and old…

Adjusting to all the new “normals” this fall we put our family heads together and perfected our first organic whole wheat pancake mix – made with local wheat harvested at Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm. You can read all about it here. It wasn’t long before we had our first corporate order pairing our organic maple syrup with our new homemade pancake mix. We were so impressed by the idea – to support local and also give a sweet gift to employees who will be missing the holiday’s festivities this year.

Creativity then hit Scott’s think cap – breakfast bundles! So just like that we added two breakfast bundles to our online store: a family feast, and a romantic breakfast for two. Having shut down our pancake house early last spring – we’re delighted to offer the ultimate Fulton’s comfort food for your family this holiday season. It’s easy, delicious and a great gift…you can click here to have a look for yourself…

Fall was also a time of steep learning for me with our new move into Shopify. I wish computers and such came easily to me! I want to thank Amber Campbell for great photos and Dagne Forrest and Emma Brown for the set up of our new website and fabulous online store that lets our customers shop for their favourite syrup – by grade!  You will love the new system – it actually is easy (at least for you the customer!)

‘Til next time!
