Kathy LeHew from north of Monmouth, IL has been baking since she joined 4-H at 9 years old. As a teenager she won countless blue ribbons at the Knox and Warren County Fairs. She has always baked for family, but after settling in to retirement a few years ago, she had more time to bake more frequently, especially during Covid. But with just her and her husband Jon at home, she needed people to share her baked goods with. In 2023 she obtained the Food Protection Manager Certificate and Cottage Food Permit and established Mineral Springs Country LLC in order to sell her baked goods to the general public. The Galesburg Farmers Market with its wonderful customers proved to be the perfect venue for Kathy to market her cinnamon rolls, donuts, cookies, mini cakes, quick breads and pastries. You can find Kathy and Jon under the purple tent most Saturdays.
