  • Stocking the Cold Cellar

    At Fletcher Family Farm canning is another way of preserving our food supply. We can many different vegetables, make an assortment of pickles and also preserve fruit from the many fruit trees on the farm.

  • Fun Fact:

    Did you know that in 1974, samples of canned food from the wreck of the Bertrand, a steamboat that sank in the Missouri River in 1865, were tested by the National Food Processors Association. Although appearance, smell and vitamin content had deteriorated, there was no trace of microbial growth and the 109 year-old food was determined to be still safe to eat.
