BRAYDEN'S PAWFECT TREATS
Brayden is a eleven-year-old boy diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, and Anxiety. These issues cause him to struggle with finding coping skills that you and I find extremely easy in our daily lives. That was until he picked up a mixer and started making dog treats. He started a small business in 2020 with just a little parental help. It has helped him learn new social skills, a way to focus/learn, stay on task with deadlines, and get to know dogs, which has created a calming environment for him.
Brayden donates part of his earnings to Simply Love International, founded by Erin Cannon, which supports children and orphans in a village in Tengeru, Tanzania. He also donates another portion to the local Human Society, as well as donations of gift baskets for fundraising and other events in the area!

CHERISH DESIGNS BY KRIS LANAE

Her career in design has been filled with highlights including art licensing with Demdaco & Creative Coop, designs published in magazines, wholesale direct to boutiques with her handmade designs and teach classes.
When I was little, my mom used to tell me all about how "everyone has something that they're good at." And that always made me a little nervous, because I was pretty good at those latch-hook rug kits, and what if that was my "thing I was good at" and that's all I got. No offense to latch-hook rug enthusiasts, but I think that would be a pretty crappy way to go through life.
But what my mom DIDN'T tell me is that some people have something that they're GREAT at. And for me, that's making cheesecake. (That sounds really braggy, but lighten up – it's cheesecake. I'm not claiming to be great at world peace or cancer curing. Plus, it's true.) So let's get together. I'll be great and you'll be happy. (And so will my mom.)

FARAWAY FARM SOAP
Why handcrafted soap? Working from sun up to sun down in the dirt meant I used A LOT of soap. Early on I had a very bad reaction to commercial “soap” (think itching, scratching, and ultimately the need for anti-histamines). Since then I’ve discovered that commercial soap is actually detergent. Yuck!
No wonder my skin rebelled. Not wanting to ever have a reaction like that again, in 2012 I made my first batch of handcrafted soap and have been obsessed ever since! I found that I love to combine oils, butters, scents, colors and exfoliants in just the right combination for every skin’s special needs.

NELSON BROTHERS/CUTTING EDGE CATERING
Bruce started canning with his grandmother when he was young. Every year they would get together and pickle several bushels of cucumbers over Labor Day Weekend. One year, they decided it was too much work to continue doing this all on one weekend and they stopped pickling all together. Bruce got tired of buying pickles in the store, so he picked it back up and has been pickling cucumbers every year since!
You’ll find a derivative of this old family recipe still being used in our dill pickles today. We have also adopted some of our other favorite grandparent recipes in our Grandma’s Salsa and Grandma’s Apple Butter.
We started our family business adventure in 2021. We currently operate as a registered cottage foods producer through the state of Minnesota. Most of the products we process have either been grown in our own garden or have been acquired from local farms in the area. When it comes time to canning foods, it is all-hands-on-deck with our entire family to get everything completed while it is at the freshest state possible.

Our seventy-five acre farm relies on nutritional value and quality of our products not simply the quantity of our products. With generations of farming expnce behind us we believe we provide the best value produce on the market.
Produce Acres moved from thought to reality in the spring of 1983 with the planting of asparagus, strawberries and raspberries.
When we started farming fruits and vegetables, we did as we were told; spray for weeds, insects, fungus and blight as the calendar dates came up. The first few years we had the chemical sprayer in the field every week and some weeks twice. With all our spraying we still had weeds, insects and blight.
In 1991 we started using bacteria friendly fertilizers on our farm. We have since left the chemical sprayer in the shed and purchased an air blast sprayer for spraying foliar fertilizers. Since then we have noted healthier looking crops along with a significant increase in yield from our fields.
In 2012, we officially became a certified organic farm.
RAE FAMILY FARM
In 2018, we purchased a ten acre plot of land in the outskirts of Monticello, Minnesota. Previous to us, the land was used for horses. It had a big brown farm house and some horse stalls in the pasture - it even had a little coop for quail. A new chapter in our lives had blossomed. We started with a small flock of five. It was from then on that our love for chickens grew.
By 2020, we had grown in the number of birds we had from our first five, to a little over 200 chickens. Through trial and error, we were figuring out what was best for our growing flock. We even decided to get three little goats! For sure we were on our way to a successful hobby farm.
Now, in 2022, we have over 400 chickens and seven goats. Our goal is to provide only the best quality eggs and vegetables to our local community.

SMUDE SUNFLOWER OIL
We (Tom and Jenni Smude) started our enterprise in 2010 after a rough year for crops in 2007. Why sunflowers? We started looking for a drought-tolerant crop and this is where it led.
Our first goal was to sell by-products and the oil bulk by semi-loads. Three months later the we were faced with a hard choice when the price for bulk oil fell. So, with a positive mind, we decided to start selling retail oil on March 10th, 2012.
The word spread about the new product and soon retailers were calling us! Now our products are across the Midwest in retailers and hometown shops. The oil is also available online which ships across the country.
We would like to thank all of our customers, new or returning and loyal, for your support. Without you we would not be where we are today!
We make soaps, shampoos, lotions, gift baskets, special orders, orders for events.

SUMMER KNEES BOOKS
"Ah! Those are just summer knees!" Our grandmother would say this to us whenever she saw the bumps, bruises, scabs, and scars on our knees. Some days we also had summer elbows, chins and feet!
These "summer knees" marked our adventures, exploration, and a whole lot of fun! But they were also reminders of our tears and mistakes. When my sister and I set out on this venture of creating a children's book publishing company, we knew we were taking a risk and that there would be several bumps and bruises along the way - all part of the adventure.
At Summer Knees Books, like our knees, we believe in imperfect works of art and working to make our and our children's dreams come true. Our first series of books: "books for kids written by kids" are stories told and written by our kids. MJ's first book was written with a good friend of ours and once she wrote a book, her little brother had to follow too! They both have inspired us to write books and tell the world our stories!

WHITE GOAT SKINCARE
I have always hated the smell most soap leaves on your skin, it smells like a hospital and stays on your skin forever. For as long as I can remember I have been sensitive to fragrances. Hair spray, shampoo, perfume wreaking havoc with my sinuses sending me into a fit of sneezing, running nose and severe sinus congestion and headache. I was miserable. My solution, avoid all scents on myself and anyone around me.
A friend suggested I make some goat milk soap back in 2010. I love how my skin feels when I use goat milk products without all the harsh chemicals. The best part is people’s reaction to the products, when they tell us about our products helping to make their skin feel better. I strive to use the best ingredients available to make the best products.
