  We are always looking for new LOCAL ITEMS and we have found one more!

                  McCutcheon’s Pumpkin Butter
                              McCutcheon’s is located right here in Frederick, MD.
                          (Ok - so I know that their products aren’t new to our store but I
                             think their Pumpkin Butter is really worth highlighting!)
                            Stop by and pick up a jar - it’s great on toast, crackers, fresh
                           warm bread ... yummm! We also carry a large selection of their
                               other jams, jellies including the famous Apple Butter.
