Barter Based: Bulk Ordering with Penny

  • 1963 Clarence Road Bridgetown, Nova Scotia Canada (map)

Penny has graciously offered to spear head a bulk order evening from Rancho Vignola, we will gather and select the items that we are interested in purchasing then she will fill out all the forms and put in the order.

If this is your first time attending a barter-based class, note that attendees are encouraged to bring an item(s) to offer in exchange for the knowledge shared in addition to any supplies required for the class. Our facilitator's preferred items are listed below to help identify fair trades:

  • Produce

  • Farm fresh eggs

  • Wine

  • Hand made soap

  • Any surprises at all

There is no fee associated with this ticket but please do not just indicate "coming" on the event - we've found this is not an accurate capture of attendees. If you have any difficulty registering you can send us an email to lifeschoolhouseav@gmailcom or @lifeschoolhouseav on Facebook.

Would you enjoy having access to the very best dried fruits and freshest nuts you have ever tasted? Introducing Rancho Vignola’s top-quality, new crop products, with a great selection of raw and certified organic items. Rancho Vignola is a seasonal business specializing in fresh nuts, new crop dried fruit and fine confections. As such, we are only open for business during specific times of the year. The main part of our business coincides with the fall harvest during which the majority of the crops are harvested and our products are at their peak of quality and freshness.

Rancho Vignola has been bringing in the “Best of the New Crop” since 1980! Our products are purchased by individuals, families, buying groups, fundraising organizations and retail stores across Canada. Most of our products are sold on an annual “fresh from harvest” basis through our wholesale ordering season, which is effective each September.
