    Blose Barn and Garden

    Today was the first day of summer sales for the Blose Farm and Garden vegetables. There were potatoes, beets, onions, squash, zucchini and more! All of the veggies were hand grown by Faith and Matt Blose. “They did the whole thing themselves!” Said Julie Blose, their proud mother. They will continue to sell every Saturday from 8am – 12pm.

    The Blose Barn and Garden has been open for about 6 weeks for this season and not only sells fresh vegetables, but also hosts weddings and parties. It’s perfect if you’re looking for that “Instagrammable” Pinterest venue with it’s rustic and rural feel. There are very friendly ducks and four turkeys that follow you and act like dogs. “The turkeys just want you to pet them,” says Don Blose, while scratching their rubbery necks. The Bloses provide almost everything you could need for an event, from decorations to light refreshments. The barns and buildings are surrounded with raw history, with handwritten crop ledgers on the barn walls, and more.

    Check it out yourself! Pet a turkey, buy some vegetables, and have a great time.

    Adoptable Pet of the Week

    Hi, Spock!

    Spock may be a little nervous when he first meets you, but who isn’t nervous meeting new people? His best buddy is Kirk, who has also been featured on Yukon’s Best! They lived in a home together before being dumped at a kill shelter. He is friends with every person and canine he meets, and would love a home with other dogs to play with. Spock is middle aged, so no worries about house training or chewing. Spock loves going for walks, or staying in, talk about versatile!

    Adoption fee for all dogs and puppies is $130.00 each, which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations (including all puppy boosters for puppies under 4 months), worming, flea/tick treatment if needed, microchip and collar/leash/tags.

    You can find out more about Spock, or make plans to adopt him here, or contact Pet’s and People at (405) 350-7387.

    Tender Tuesday – Episode 2

    What? Tender Tuesday? Did you expect hugging and soft moments? Not that kind of tender. We’re talking chicken tenders.

    If you’ve heard about us and are just now discovering the wonder of Tender Tuesday, you can watch last week’s video here.

    Madisyn and Cailin are back again this week, bringing you the hottest takes on chicken from around Yukon. Their goal is to tell you which restaurant is better than the rest, in other words, Yukon’s Best Chicken.

    Let’s see what they found this week.

He and Shelton will perform “Dive Bar” together July 19, at the first of Brooks’ two sold-out shows at Boise, Idaho’s Albertsons Stadium.
