Wishing everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend!
Goodbye Ramona...
It pains us to announce that soon we will be saying goodbye to our long-time sales rep and dear friend, Ramona Chavez. Ramona's daughter Terri and son-in-law Rich are pursuing new opportunities in Idaho Falls, ID and Ramona will be joining them to take on full-time grandma duties for her grandchildren, Benji and Hallie.

Over the last 10 years, Ramona has been a tremendous asset to Babé Farms. In addition to developing relationships and friendships with her many customers, she also does a great deal of work behind-the-scenes to ensure everything is running smoothly between production and sales. It is not often you find someone who genuinely CARES like Ramona does.
While we will undoubtedly miss Ramona so, so much, we are excited for her to begin this next big chapter in her life! We love you, Mona ❤️❤️❤️

  2. Roll out one ball of dough to about 12 to 14 inch diameter circle with your hands preferably and place it on a pizza pell or baking sheet already sprinkled with cornmeal. You can pull and stretch to make it even and thin.
