Bug Hill Farm is best known for our fruit cordials, shrubs, syrups, spreads, sauces, drink mixers, and dessert toppings, all crafted from local raspberries, currants, gooseberries, blueberries, elderberries, strawberries and rhubarb, and sweetened with locally-produced honey and maple syrup. The farm is USDA Certified Organic, and we manage our farm, honeybees and nearly fifty acres of mostly wild woodlands for wildlife and pollinator habitat as well as organically grown products to nourish and delight our customers.

Andee's Currant Winter Tonic 2.0 In a 1/2 gallon or 2L thermos mix:
Slowly fill thermos with boiling water and stir. Serve while still hot.
Black Currant Icing Makes enough to generously frost a 9-inch round layer cake or two dozen cupcakes.
4 sticks Unsalted Butter, room temperature
6 cups sifted Confectioners' Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Kiss of Cassis, add up to 4 more teaspoons of Black Currant Cordial for stronger black currant flavor
Blend butter in a mixer on medium-high until pale and fluffy. Add vanilla and Kiss of Cassis and blend until well-incorporated. Reduce speed to low. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Raise speed to high and beat until well-combined, 10 to 20 seconds more. Transfer to a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap until ready to use. After icing your cake, refrigerate until the frosting is set, a couple of hours or overnight.
