Stark Bro's Recipe Contest Winners

Grow it, make it, share it. From savory to sweet – including ingredients you can grow from Stark Bro's plants & trees – here are our recipe contest winners.

Stick a fork in it — it's done! Earlier we told you we were putting a recipe book together to commemorate our upcoming 200th anniversary, and we cordially invited you to be part of that by submitting your very own recipes to be prepared, tasted, and hand-selected by the author/chef.


Seven winning submissions were selected, with entrants being limited to winning once.

Winners will receive:

  • Their winning recipe included, with credit, in the final published 200th anniversary recipe book.
  • A free copy of the recipe book. (The recipe book will be available to everyone as of December 1.)
  • A $50 Stark Bro's Gift Certificate.
