I found a very pleasant surprise yesterday while going to get fixin’s for the holiday weekend. Someone suggested I get our meat from Hahn’s market. Off I went to Hahn’s, which is located near Eddy Lane by the DQ. They have a great selection of high quality meat, local cheeses and much more. They pride themselves on carrying locally produced goods. I found the people to be very helpful and knowledgeable. These were all great, but the really pleasant surprise was the Eco Picnic Pack that I found. In the pack was eco-friendly disposables that are recycled and compostable. Plus they also have a great selection of eco-friendly disposable cups. All these items are especially great if you are picnicking away from home. I know I said DON’T use disposables but when you have to haul stuff to a remote location I realize dragging tableware that is heavy and possibly breakable is really asking a lot. Check out another great local business. If you don’t live in the Chippewa Valley do a little digging in your town. You may find a local treasure as well.
