Garden Club Suet Ball Factory in full production

By Barbara Armitage

The Great Gourmet Suet Ball Factory was in full production on Tuesday. Nine members, Maury LewisKathy Hunt, Angie Loy,Monica Thomas, Melody Boward, Wendy Burt, Vonnie Kolbenschlag, Stephanie Archie - and me - of the Adair County Garden Club and the ever faithful suet guard dog Jake cranked out another batch of the Adair County Garden Club's Gourmet Suet Balls.

"Our Gourmet Suet Balls have been in such high demand we had to schedule a special production day to meet customer needs" reported Barbara Armitage of the ACGC. So what makes the ACGC's suet balls so special - well that's a closely guarded secret and they aren't telling.

The birds just love these suet balls - they know the secret recipe too but they aren't telling either.

Attract more varieties of birds to your feeders by adding an ACGC Gourmet Suet Balls to your feeding station. One pound Gourmet Suet Balls are available at the Adair County Library, Birding 101 classes or from any Adair County garden Club member for $3.00 each. Call Barbara Armitage at (270) 250-2979 for more information.

100% of the proceeds benefits the Adair County Garden Club supporting birding and garden projects in our community.
