March 1, 2016 Shinnston, West Virginia: We are all set for 2016. Last Wednesday the newest coffees arrived. Wednesday evening we took delivery of the West Virginia Maple Syrup. Today we took delivery of West Virginia honey. And we will soon be arranging to pick up another supply of Gillum House mugs.

We get our coffees from Burman Coffee Company. We restocked Maui and Rwanda and now have Zimbabwe and Burundi added to the list of in-house coffees for our guests to choose from. We roast the choices of the guests (IF chosen in advance from the Confirmation Letter with the most current list) which are then fresh-ground and fresh-perked each morning.

Fresh supplies for 2016

Last week was the Small Farms Conference in Charleston, West Virginia as well as the West Virginia Bed and Breakfast Association Conference. While there we met up with the good folks from Family Roots Farm in Wellsburg (Brooke County – my home County) to get 6 quarts of West Virginia Maple Syrup to serve with our homemade “from scratch” pancakes. We also bought 6 lbs. of bacon from the Hampshire County High School FFA at the Small Farms Conference Farmer’s Market. (Since we serve generous portions, that will not last very long)

Today we took delivery of 6 quarts of honey (3 each of Black Locust and Spring Flower) from Rimfire’s Apiary of Clarksburg – very local honey.

And very soon we will arrange a meeting with Larry Riffle (when we are certain the snows are done – Cowen is snow country) of Riffle Pottery to pick up the latest order of Gillum House mugs. Larry throws each one separately so no 2 are exactly alike and he signs each one.

The rooms are ready, supplies are stocked. The only thing missing – is YOU!
