Central Point, Or. (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
Martha Stewart Living and her company, Omnimedia, branched out to rural Oregon for their holiday gifts this year by choosing artisan chocolate maker Lillie Belle Farms to supply over 250 pounds of their hand made Lavender infused Fleur du Sel caramels to their corporate clients.
Chocolatier Jeff Shepherd commented about the order. " With all the chocolate companies out there it was quite an honor to have someone whose entire business is centered on taste and style to choose our products as their holiday gift."
Asked to describe what sets these caramels apart he added,"We make each small batch by hand using lavender from our garden, fresh Oregon cream, organic dark chocolate and a little sprinkle of Fleur du Sel from the coast of Brittany."
In business for just three years, Lillie Belle Farms products have garnered attention from Wine Spectator, The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning news, The New York Times, The Robb Report, and several other national media outlets.
Utilizing their own fruits and flowers from their organic berry farm in Southern Oregon and then combining them with the finest organic single origin chocolate, their decedent ganaches, toffees, bon bons, and caramels have been acquiring fans across the country.
Mostly available on their website, http://www.lilliebellefarms.com, the small artisan chocolate company has been expanding their retail presence with a vigorous wholesale campaign that began with the completion of their new facility in July 2005. "We are now actively searching for compatible retail partners who appreciate our artisan approach' says Chocolatier Jeff Shepherd.
"A year ago we would not have been able to fulfill her order in a timely manner, but since we built our new kitchen we were able to accommodate Martha and several other high profile clients this season."
