Ron and Joanne Schmidt of Galloping Cows Fine Foods in Port Hood, Nova Scotia, left Monday, Feb. 21 for the Oscars in Los Angeles, California. They will set up a display in the Oscars' Gifting Suite and present stars with a gift box of Galloping Cows Pepper Jellies.
Joanne says they broke into the star-studded gift scene when they attended the Toronto International Film Festival and the Golden Globes with their Brandy Cranberry Marmalade. But they will shine the spotlight on their Wild Blueberry Pepper Spread as the Oscars.
The company started as a roadside farm market 16 years ago. They've continued to evolve and develop new products over the years with Ron and Joanne creating the new recipes. They use 100 per cent Nova Scotia fruit in their products.
In addition to the red carpet, Galloping Cows pepper jellies are available in the deli departments at Sobeys stores in Atlantic Canada. Gift stores, farm markets, specialty food stores and their website also sell the product.
The Oscars air Sunday, Feb. 27.
