Angie, owner of Bloomin Bottles, has been a resident of Wendell for the past 40 years. She loves everything there is about living in the South! From the rustic barns, beautiful open fields, ever changing leaves on the trees and the free spirited wild life that can be spotted so easily! Although she does enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures, she would never want to live anywhere else but in the small town charm of the south.
Angie has a wonderful husband, Mike, who is also an artist and together they have a beautiful & creative 8 year old daughter, Lillie Grace. Angie gains much of her inspirations and encouragement from her family.
Angie’s background consists of growing up working in and around farming. After marrying Mike she became surrounded by glass of all types and colors in his stained glass studio. So, it’s no surprise her love for and fascination of art by repurposing Old Farm Board and beautiful glass bottles to create her works of Old Charm .
After creating many pieces and the demand growing so rapidly, Angie’s love and hobby developed into a full time art business, Bloomin Bottles.

Old Milburnie Farm is a sustainable vegetable, poultry and mushroom farm in Raleigh, NC. The farm is a joint venture of Daniel Dayton and Erika Gutierrez. The couple have decided to implement their love of agriculture to provide healthy, sustainable products for Raleigh and the surrounding environs. Daniel is a Raleigh native. His passion for farming began in high school where he volunteered on the school farm. This initial interest led him to the mountains of NC for his undergraduate studies at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa. During his time at WWC, Daniel worked on the college’s 5 acre garden. After college, Daniel spent two years in Mali working as an agricultural extension agent with the US Peace Corps. He’s currently earning an MS degree from NC State. Erika grew up New Bern. Unbeknownst to her, an interest in agriculture also began at a young age with the cultivation of a small vegetable garden and growing up along the Neuse and Trent Rivers. Erika has had a seemingly unconventional route to agriculture. Whether it was fate, a connection to nature, or discontent with impersonal communities, throughout this time, continual reevaluation of her interests in community, health, and land stewardship led her to farming.

Robin’s Kitchen Lab was a dream that started because Robin wanted to know what was in the food she was eating. She has always been passionate about food. Find her at a table with family and friends and they will be discussing what their next meal will be.
Robin grew up with her dad’s huge garden behind their house. Dinner was decided by what was ready to be picked or what had been put up over the summer. Robin has always had a garden of her own. This, more than anything else, has given her a taste for fresh, high quality ingredients and nothing less.
Robin loves to tinker in the kitchen. She has devised her own Worcestershire recipe over a 10 year period and she thinks it nailed. The shrubs have been a labor of love over the past two years. Both are fermented and it takes some time to get to understand how that process improves flavors over time.
