🌟 FREE shipping with coupon code FREEBOXSHIP
Since Preston is so tied into Fikabröd’s origin, it’s only fitting that we honour the goodest boy during May, his birthday month. One of Preston’s favourite places to go was the Blue Ridge Mountains, as he loved hiking and getting loads of mountain sniffs! With this box, we are honouring those happy memories by featuring ingredients and items from the Blue Ridge Mountains. This box includes:
🍎 Apple Butter • Imladris Farm
Imladris is a sustainable farm that has been in the same family for more than two centuries! They cook western NC apples low and slow to get the perfect texture for their apple butter, a perennial Blue Ridge favourite.
