Farmer Ben Shaw says that Garden of Spices's pate is their most popular item. He estimates that approximately one in 1,000 people do not like it. The rest are all sold. If you think you're in that 0.1%, stop by and ask for a sample. In addition to the pate, the farm also has readymade broth for sale.
