My husband and I , along with our six children own and operate a bulk food store in Northern Idaho in the beautiful town of Bonners Ferry. This has been a learning experience for us, we enjoy learning to know our customers and the food needs they have. We do a lot of special orders, so let us know how we can help you out.
We are starting this blog in hopes to share with our customers and many across blogging land, info about our new products, tips on cooking, recipes using our products and lots of input from you! There is so much information out there and I do research for customers all the time on using /cooking with grains,etc. and I hope to give you links to check it out for yourself!
We started an online store and while it’s been a slow start for us, people are finding us! We are excited about that and hope to increase that part of “Sharon’s Country Store”.
It all started in the basement of our home in 2006 as a little sideline business/hobby for me. We soon outgrew that and since we sold our home and had to move out in 2008 anyway, we decided to go with an actual storefront just north of Bonners Ferry in a tiny house that we outgrew again! We moved just up the street to the other half of a building which housed “The Bread Basket Bakery”, a shop that serves coffee, fresh made-from scratch – doughnuts and yummy sandwiches made from their homemade breads.
We’ve expanded since then several times, adding handmade Amish -built rocking chairs, fabrics, Christian books, and toys. People are catching on to the convenience of having bulk foods on hand and cooking from scratch which means us stocking up so we can offer it to you! We have had many requests for more gluten – free products, more organic items and also more natural foods with less additives, preservatives and added color! So hopefully in 2012 we’ll expand more in that area.
