Hello! We are Allen & Melissa Ferguson. As the owners of Small Town Specialties, we wanted you to be able to put a face(s) to the name. This is our wedding pic, from 5 years ago. It’s pretty. Nowadays, our pictures are of our 3 kids, Kendal, Kenzie & Max, one of which is never looking at the camera 😆.
We are happy to be able to share with you our locally grown products, grown right here in Northern California!
We had so many people asking for this recipe, at the Sohnrey Family Food Harvest Festival. Here goes!
