If you haven’t yet tried a fresh, locally made whoopie pie from Inglorious Monk Bakery, prepare yourself for a religious experience. Frustrated with the shortage of delicious allergen-free desserts in stores, Nancy Coppom of Longmont, Colo., started making gluten-free whoopie pies for her family, then friends. Having grown up near Pennsylvania’s Amish Country, where the whoopie pie was invented, she decided to create a gluten-free version. The results were unique and delicious. Word spread and soon a local restaurant owner called, wondering if she could supply a gluten-free dessert.

Just south of Bennett, Colo., lies Ambrosia Farm, a 35-acre prairie home to the Godsey family, lots of chickens, turkeys, and goats, and a handful of farm cats and dogs. Although the sweeping farmland is treeless, native wildlife, including antelope, deer, and rattlesnakes, is abundant. “The wind never stops blowing and the sun is hot and dry,” says owner Christine Godsey, “It’s the perfect place to raise dry land birds.” For the last several years as part of the Eastern Plains Natural Food Co-op, the Godseys have been raising heritage-breed chickens and turkeys.
