Becky's Breads - Lexington
I’ve loved baking since I was eight. It all started with hot waffles. Mom tasted them and said I could take over. I was hooked! The next step was (of course!) chocolate chip cookies, but my little self decided to take a risk. What if I put my cookie dough into a pie tin? The idea was new to me and I proudly called my experiment Chocolate Chip PIE. After that, my Dad would regularly ask me to make it and my success spurred me on. People liked my work and I liked working at it!
During college I would surprise my roommates with new recipes I discovered over the weekend. They were always grateful for my yummy, late-night study snacks and I was grateful they were grateful! Life changed after getting married and starting a family, but not my baking. I have fun trying out new recipes and improving old ones. I love the creative outlet and it’s a great way for me to unwind.
Nowadays I keep my recipes simple and I keep them - starting with locally grown flour from Kentucky Proud Weisenberger Mills in Midway, KY. I especially like baking my signature Pumpkin Breads, because they are so moist and sweet and full of flavor! I’m excited for you to try my different breads, cookies and brownies. I love them and I hope you do too!

Spring LLC - Nicholasville
Ours is a family farm which has been operating for generations. We raise grass fed and grass finished beef. We will be offering single cut samples at the Nicholasville Farmers Market in 2019. And if you visit at the right even a cooked morsel. We think you will find our beef to be more flavorful, full of nutrients and best of all local.
We like to think that we grow grass not cattle. We strive for a sustainable pasture using rotational grazing which looks to promote soil health, lower pollution levels and be environmentally friendly. We wanted our beef to graze rich pasture until harvest. We wanted treatment thru all phases.
Find our farm location signs on Brannon Road, Nicholasville. For more our website: www.springwaterbeef.com Email us any questions you may have.
