Marini Farm's Ice-Cold Lemonade Is Waiting For You

You know it's summertime when you see the neighborhood kids setting up lemonade stands on hot sunny days. This season Marini Farm has started selling ice-cold drinks including coffee, tea and lemonade. We also have special lemonade that is fruit infused with raspberries and other flavorful sweet summer fruits. Lemonade, that quintessential summer drink, has become a popular drink for all seasons, with lemons commonly in the top three best-selling flavors in the citrus beverage industry.

The earliest written evidence of lemonade has been found in Egypt, dated to around 1000 AD. Today there are 50 varieties of lemons, and an average size lemon tree can yield 500 to 600 pounds of lemons per year. More than 90 percent of American lemons come from California, though the United States is typically bested in lemon production by India, Mexico, Argentina, China and Brazil.

There’s even a Guinness Book world record for the longest lemonade stand measuring 1,399 feet by 11 inches, which was built by students and teachers at Birmingham Public Schools in Birmingham, MI.

First coined by writer Elbert Hubbard in a 1915 obituary for actor Marshall P. Wilder, the phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade", has come to encourage optimism and encouragement in the face of adversity.

Cool off on a sticky summer day with a glass of ice-cold lemonade served by the Marini Bakery, and make a note in your calendar for National Lemonade Day on August 20th.  The national organization affiliated with the day helps empower youth to learn how to become entrepreneurs through operating their own Lemonade stand. Since its launch in 2007 in Houston Texas, Lemonade Day has grown from serving 2,700 kids in one city to 1 million children across North America. With the help of partners like Google for Entrepreneurs, Lemonade Day will continue to spark the spirit of entrepreneurship and empower youth to set goals, work hard, and achieve their dreams. The top National Youth Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015, Katrina Lawrence from Fort Hood Texas, raised $1,500 to purchase 300 books for homeless children in her community.

The Marini Farm Bakery looks forward to quenching your thirst this summer.
