The orchards here at Keep Your Fork haven't brought us any truffles yet this year. In lean years past, I have purchased truffles from other growers and made them available to folks on my customer list. If you're one of those, please send me an email and I'll be happy to bring in some truffles just for you. I don't make any money on that. I just do it as a service for my truffle loving customers. I know that eventually I'll have truffles from my own orchards for you so it helps to just keep in touch while we wait.

In other news, it is my intention to continue to look for ways that our business can strengthen and contribute to the community where we live. The Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina has a program called the BackPack Program. It provides food for the week-end for students who are enrolled in the free breakfast and lunch programs in the schools. Truffles NC, LLC will be working to organize a benefit dinner on February 11, 2012, for that program. That's the Saturday before Valentine's Day. If you want to treat your Valentine to a delicious truffle dinner and contribute to this worthwhile charity, please send me a note and I'll send you more information as it becomes available. The minimum donation requested is $50.00 per person. Dinner will be preceded by a wine tasting and folks can buy the wine they like best to accompany their dinner. We will donate the truffles and other truffle products and hope to see it become an annual event here in Stokes County. This year's dinner will take place at Coffee, Tea and Me on Dalton Road in downtown King. I truly hope to see some of you there.
Think Truffles!! Friday is constantly looking for the next big find!!
