New Discoveries No. 1: I just made a fabulous eco-friendly find (thanks to Tracey) for Easter: Tim’s Real Easter Basket Grass. This neat product is now available at the Dorothy Lane Market in Oakwood.
The back story? Tim’s Easter Basket Grass was conceived when Vermont-based entrepreneur Hilary Hoffman began collecting hay from the neighboring farm to fill her sons’ Easter baskets.
“I thought it added to the Easter basket experience as it seemed to make the Easter Bunny a more genuine creature. Being an animal, wouldn’t he/she be more likely to use fresh, fragrant hay rather than a manufactured, plastic product?”
With some testing of the forage grasses grown in Vermont, Timothy proved to be the most fragrant. “I formed the Vermont Hay Company in Greensboro, Vermont, in 2012 to bring Tim’s Easter Basket Grass to all the parents who do not live next to a farm.”
Hillary’s innovative thinking has earned her press coverage in Martha Stewart magazine, as well as praise from decorating divas like Tracey and me.
