HOMEMADE GOODNESS!

Our Blog

An ongoing series of informational yet at times irrational entries for your amusement

Our Latest Blog Entry

March 15, 2022

It has been quite a while since I have made the time to sit and gather my thoughts, AND YOU HAVE YO READ ALL OF THIS BECAUSE I thought I would take a moment to give you a sneak peak into everything that we have coming up!

The world changes, more than most of us are comfortable with at times, but never less, we must adapt.  We have seen our industry changing in what people are shopping for and have been looking into what people want, need and what we are known for. Our signature jams and jellies have grown into a business that we could only hope for 7+ years ago. We have added new flavors, added salsas and mustards and then for the holidays we decided to go out on a limb and have some fun! We added crockpot cocoa, six different Cookie Mixes, 3 Bean Chili Starter Mix, Bread mixes and BAM! You all ATE IT UP - LITTERALLY!!

So now thanks to your support of our lovely little shop, we are going to continue to carry these popular items, some seasonally, but we are going to even expand on this demand and bring you more of what you have been wanting and it is going to be tantalizingly scrumptious!

So, do I have your curiosity yet? Because to prepare for this, we are going to close for A LITTLE WHILE, finish the remodel in the store, finish the new public bathroom and finish our commercial kitchen and open up with your favorite Solace farm Signature Products, NEW PRODUCTS and a FABULOUS SHOPPING EXPERIENCE! I am so excited to be able to bring this to all of you that I have had a hard time not talking about it when we've been planning it all out IN SECRET!

OK, you're right, enough already - spill the beans!

So, since our food products were so amazingly popular over the holidays, we are expanding to bring you the BEST of these items:

  • Dimock Cheese - Dimock Cheese has graciously reached out to request to carry some of our Signature Jams and Jellies in their retail location and we are bringing their products to YOU
  • Buffalo Meat - We are deciding on which South Dakota Company we would like to feature and welcome your input.  We are looking to carry a variety of items from ground buffalo meat to take home and cook to your liking, to buffalo sticks, jerky and more!
  • Chislic - The REAL chislic we all scurry for will be available for you to take home and cook. Look for a new line of seasonings to compliment your cooking too!
  • Pheasant Meat - Just in case you have a hankering and it's not hunting season we will be stocking whole pheasant, Pheasant POT PIES, Pheasant and Cheddar Brats and more additional yumminess than you will find for 30 miles! 
  • Colony Pies - ALREADY IN STOCK!! Youve been asking that we get this back because coming home to made from scratch chicken pot pie for dinner brings a warmth you will always remember!  
  • Expanded Canned Goods - Pickles, Beets, and who knows what will be coming into our store. The majority of these items may be seasonal but watch us on Facebook and Instagram so make sure you receive notification of them being in stock, so you do not miss out. 
  • Kutchen and Fruit Pies - Boy, I better find another commercial freezer, because we will need to room for all of these fabulous things, you're going to be taking home! 
  • Signature Syrup Line - During the holidays our NEW Apple Pancake Mix and Grandma's Apple Butter sold out regularly. To compliment this, look for new Signature Syrups and an expanded line of Pancake Mixes to be available for you!
  • Signature Cooking Oils and Seasonings - We have carried Roy's Rubs for a while, and I am hopeful that you have all come to love it as much as we do. It is my favorite for pork roast and pulled pork, and we are going to expand to add a few new things to SPICE UP YOUR LIFE! (Too corny? Yeah, it is, but the fingers were just rolling with it and while I am rolling my eyes at it as I am typing this I was wondering if you'd do the same LOL!)
  • OUR Signature BUTTERS! Wait, What? You DIDN'T KNOW we have signature butters that are infused with savory or sweets to compliment almost anything you are cooking? Well others did and they want them back! Take advantage and try them yourself! All of our flavors will be in stock in our freezer section for you to take home.
  • Wine and Liqueurs - Oh yeah baby - what's dinner without dessert? Follow us on FB and Instagram to know when to attend the wine and drink tasting events here at Solace Farm.
    • MORE?? Maybe, but for now we have lots of work to do. Stay tuned - THIS IS GOING TO BE YOUR FAVIRITE PLACE TO SHOP!!

My choices, our future

Posted on December 11, 2019 at 5:26 PM
Cinda here! I see its been some time since we have posted here, actually its been a very long time. Karla and I have been working full time, had the store open on weekends and had our own homes to attempt to maintain in the process. It has not been easy and many things had fallen by the wayside, especially when we are the ones that make the 30 plus signature jams that we sell at the store!
You see, when we decided to open the store it was with the intent to build the business and allow it to become established before I retire. To have a place to call our own, have creative fun and see where it went from there. My original planned retirement from my federal job (of 17+ years) was June 2020. You see I worked for TSA as a Security Manager with oversight of several airports in South Dakota. I started working with TSA at its beginning while I lived in Denver. Everyday I went to work I remembered the images of people jumping from the World Trade Centers as the buildings were on fire knowing they would not survive but praying somehow, that they might. The massive buildings falling to the earth and the first responders that gave their lives to save others. Vowing to do whatever part I could to ensure that we were never attacked like this again I applied with TSA and was hired.  After several promotions and working in three states I saw the agency and the administration change. I did not see the look of personal pride and determination in some of the peoples eyes anymore when talking about our job. New employees were hired that didn't remember the destruction caused on 9/11, and first and foremost, the unity we had as a nation on 9/11 was gone. Now the country is divided on party lines with name calling, threats and worse. I was no longer going to work to ensure 9/11 never happened again. I was working with people that cared more about climbing the federal career ladder at ANY cost than thinking about 9/11.The stress caused by newly promoted individuals and by a few other individuals in upper positions was personal and crushing. I watched personal vendettas taken out on employees these people didn't like. I saw people promoted for kissing backsides and other reasons whispered about quietly in gossip. I heard the utmost inappropriate conversations by members of senior leadership and observed the outcomes of those conversations in daily operations.  Yet I stayed. I stayed for the paycheck, I stayed for the benefits and I stayed for the staff that reported to me and, I hated myself for it. Please don't think that all in the federal government are these type of people, MOST are dedicated individuals that work from their heart and are absolutely dedicated to the mission. Yet, in my work environment, this small handful of people made life impossible for those that cared and several good people have left due to this. As for me, I developed an ulcer. My body made the decision for me and I listened, it was time to retire.  
After taking some time for myself at home I have a renewed energy. I am happily opening the store two more days a week, getting ready to travel and spend time with our families and even take a "surprise" trip with my Dad!  I feel balanced, fulfilled once again and to best describe it - HUMAN! A million projects were put aside due to lack of energy and/or time. I will not kill myself in tackling my lists. I have ONE item each day to complete, everything else is because I want to do it, and enjoy doing it. 
The holidays are quickly drawing near, and the giggles I hear in video calls of our youngest grandson are uplifting. Our oldest grandson is quickly becoming a young man and our middle grandson has a new future with his extended family. I am enjoying the twinkling of Christmas lights with Dean Martin singing "I've got my love to keep me warm" in the background. My husband has been SO supportive of my decision, not once questioning our future. Life is wonderful, and I am here again, to be PRESENT in our life and to enjoy every minute of it!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a GOOD NIGHT!
