Just got an email from Sonoma Foie Gras. Guillermo Gonzalez is contacting customers about placing their orders for Valentine's Day. And, he has a new t-shirt.
"Peace. Love. Foie"
During good times or those of adversity, we wish to keep these special words on the forefront, as they capture the essence of this gastronomic treasure, and ultimately the reason why our family learned the art of producing it, 26 years ago...
To spread the love, and share a special gift with our supporters, we're pleased to announce that we're offering our special edition 2012 T-shirt.
We appreciate your continued patronage! Be sure to check back with us for an update you (sic) on the latest regarding the upcoming Foie Gras Ban in the state of California (effective July 1, 2012), in the coming weeks.
The Gonzalez Family
As I reported, the California ban on Foie Gras takes effect July 1st. I tried several times to contact Gonzalez for comment, to find out about his plans. It would appear he has two options -- shut down his Foie Gras farm near Stockton, or take his business out of state.
