It is Local Strawberry Shortcake time!

 

Long before the sun rises above the horizon,  Amanda and Gustav, of Zorn Organic Farms are planning the day ahead. As the demand for locally grown Oregon strawberries is reaching a crescendo, the farm workers are filling flat after flat with ripe berries. The shifting pink and orange colors of the sky hint at the perfect day ahead., as people stir from their slumber, not yet anticipating the delights the day may hold for them. Today is the day that Beth sets out for the fertile bottomland of the Champoeg region to gather the first truckload of the season from Zorn family Farms.  Beth’s Tacoma, laden with berries,  has just now arrived back in Salem, and as we unload the strawberry flats from the truck, the sweet smell of organic strawberry goodness fills the air at LifeSource.  Come to the store on your way home today and get your fresh Oregon strawberries, your freshly baked shortcake from LifeSource deli, and maybe a little organic cream to whip up for dessert.  It is officially Strawberry Shortcake time!
