This Sunday we visited Jorgenson Farms for the first annual Backyard Mintfest in corporation with Jeni’s Ice Cream. Jorgenson Farms grows all the mint for Jeni’s Mint ice cream and the fest allowed Jeni’s fans to see where the mint is locally grown and tour the farm. Val Jorgenson is a family friend and McCullough’s has helped with numerous projects around her farm over the years. This was a wonderful event and the whole family had a great time.

Jorgensen Farms has sunflowers growing around the edge of her fields that are the highlight of a sunflower-summer dinner she has every year.
A basket of personal fans to help keep everyone cool during the hot summer day.
After Jeni's Demo, Val invited everyone out to the field that grows the same mint for Jeni's ice cream to pick some of their own.
Jeni provided a demo of how to make mint-chocolate milk (yes it was delicious) and mint whipped cream.
