Kansas holiday gift baskets

Share a bit of Kansas with loved ones this holiday season — send holiday gift boxes with local food from From the Land of Kansas.  From the Land of Kansas is the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s trademark program. It promotes businesses that grow, raise or produce Kansas products and the gift boxes provide a nice mixture of goods from these businesses.

Recipients will surely be happy to have a taste of the Sunflower State, plus you’ll save time and stress by ordering online at (And couldn’t we all use some stress-saving this time of year?!)

“This is the third year we’ve offered our holiday boxes,” said Lexi Wright, program coordinator. “Every year, we sell out and every year we hear how much people enjoy sharing Kansas with others.”

You can choose from two boxes — the Ad Astra Box for $50 or the Konza Box for $25.

The Konza Box includes:

  • Sunflower oil from Wright Enterprises, Bird City
  • Cake mix from Sticky Spoons, Hutchinson
  • Chocolate sunflower seeds from The Sweet Granada, Emporia
  • Summer sausage from Yoder Meats, Yoder
  • Mustard from Grannie’s Homemade Mustard, Hillsboro
  • Peppernuts from Prairie Harvest, Newton

“They’re a great way to get Kansas products out to people so they can see what great products come from Kansas,” Lexi said. “And if someone really likes something, they can order more from the website.”

New items added this year include summer sausage from Yoder Meats, medium garden salsa from Holmes-Made Salsa, cocoa cake mix from Sticky Spoons and pumpkin bites from Safely Delicious.

“Since there are so many great products made by From the Land of Kansas members, we hope every year to introduce a few new items in the boxes, keeping them fresh and exciting, no matter how many times you’ve shopped with us,” Lexi said.

Orders can be made online at through Dec. 10 for guaranteed delivery before Christmas.

“I would encourage customers to order early,” Wright says. “Every year we sell out, and we hate telling people we’ve sold our last box.”
