Fiesta Follow Up Flyer How exciting, welcome 2018! I am very enthusiastic about the New Year. First of all, it is Wholy Living’s 25th year in business! What began in the fall of 1993 as an infrequent order from Wheat Montana has emerged into a great opportunity to share healthy foods and concepts with families all across Alaska! Thank you for blessing us with your patronage these past years. All our grain depots will echo the fact; WE HAVE THE GREATEST CUSTOMERS IN ALASKA! And not only customers, but precious friendships have blossomed along the way. As long as the Lord gives me strength & energy, Wholy Living will continue until either others have taken up the torch or God says to retire.



All classes & events are held at our home on Lazy Mountain, unless otherwise noted.

$10/person for the Saturday bread classes & $15/person for the special cooking classes.


WHOLE GRAINS 101, GETTING STARTED ~ Saturday, March 3 at 10 AM (note time change from previous announcements). Learn all the basics about grains, bake some bread, eat pizza, and take home cinnamon rolls. $10/per person


SPRING CO-OP ORDER CYCLE ~ To save money on consumables, keep your eyes peeled for the spring order cycle announcement in mid March. Don’t place your order yet, as I need to develop the order form, but just want to get you thinking about it! Here’s a peak preview of a couple of new items…

  • Dried Figs ~ amazingly soft & chewy. So delicious, my hubby loves munching on a few.

  • 2 gallon pails with gamma lids or regular lids.



A MEXICAN EASTER BREAKFAST CLASS ~ Tuesday, March 27th at 6 pm. Let’s whip up some of the delicious recipes we DID NOT serve at the Mexican Fiesta. Mexican Potatoes with Chorizo (homemade sausage) with Chile Rellenos & Chorizo Casserole, New Mexico Spoon Bread, & Toasted Oat, Coconut & Almond Granola. One of the Hot Chocolate recipes & Fruit Salad will round out the evening. You might want to pick up one of the notebooks by the end of the feast!
