Something New At Yellow Dog Farms
The aroma of fresh earth rose from the exposed grass and I could hear the cry of baby squirrels in their nest from the old oak tree near the patio. My senses have been aroused and I have a feeling that spring is just around the corner. I can help but imagine what opportunities this summer will bring.
There will be something new on the horizon at Yellow Dog Farms. Lemoncello. My wife Susan and I had this delicious digestivo many years ago at our favorite restaurant, Saraceno's, in the North end of Boston. After a wonderful meal of some of the best Italian food since mama, our waiter, Marcello, brought out this delicious drink. It's called a disgestivo because it is said to aid in the digestion after a heavy meal.
We peeled over two thousand lemons to produce our first bottling of our lemoncello. It will be made in small quantities until I can test the market in our area.
I have been at the drawing board all week trying to design the label for our new venture.
