The Adventures of Tammy and Barb

The Adventures of Barb and Tammy started from a mutual love of gardening and cooking. They started making garden items such as hypertufa pots and sand cast bird baths. Of course, they had too many for their own use so they decided to sell them at a farmers market.  Around the same time, Barb gave Tammy some homemade granola, which Tammy loved and suggested they should sell.  So they did, right next to their pots and bird baths.

They made us a perfect little mix for the perfect little beach snack!
