Spring Celebration to be held at Cooper’s Mill

Staff report

Cooper’s Mill announces its third annual “Spring Celebration” to be held on May 6-7, at its retail marketplace in Bucyrus. The event is designed to celebrate the advent of spring and the flavorful tastes of Cooper’s Mill.

“This year we are proud to announce the addition of several new products to the already extensive line of fresh, wholesome products locally produced at Cooper’s Mill,” said Justin McMullen, Vice President of Cooper’s Mill. “At last year’s celebration, we announced our Apple Butter BBQ Sauce. This year we are pleased to announce the addition of Angry Peach BBQ Sauce to the line. This sauce kicks it up a notch with a nice spicy flavor that is perfectly paired with the subtle sweetness of peaches. The new flavor line also includes Chunky Peach Applesauce, Blackberry Chipotle Sauce and Strawberry Jalapeno Jam.”

Dan Cooper, son of Cooper’s Mill founders Dave and Miriam Cooper, is the mastermind behind the new recipes that have been developed.

“ I love creating new flavors, and I love the challenge each new product brings in getting the flavor combinations just right,” said Dan.

Cooper’s Mill Apple Butter is slow-cooked in copper kettles over a wood fire to give it a rich, flavorful taste that is hard to beat.

Rhonda Baldwin, manager of Cooper’s Mill, said, “If you have not stopped by the Cooper’s Mill marketplace since our renovation and reopening in 2015, now is the time to do so. We are launching several new lines of food products and we are excited to share delicious samples of them with our guests.”

These products include spice rubs from Halladay’s Harvest Barn, all-natural (locally made) dog treats from Canine Cookie Jar, coffee by the cup or the pound from Crimson Cup, cooking sauces from Captain Rodney’s, along with a variety of new Troyer’s products, including gourmet butters, cider, candy, chips and crackers.

The new product lines officially launch on Friday during the “Spring Celebration” event at Cooper’s Mill, 1414 N. Sandusky Ave., between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Enjoy some delicious samples, enter to win prizes and enjoy special savings on some of the products in the market.
