  • My mother was Evelyn Latvala who grew up on the Latvala dairy farm in Ternary. She married my father Russell Druckenmiller who grew up in Diffin. They are both buried in the Trenary cemetery. I loved eating Trenary toast and limpoo (not sure of the spelling). I’m 65 and live in Alabama now and don’t get it very often.

  • I have been eating Trenary Toast for over 60 years! We were raised it! I raised my sons on it’s, too! And now my oldest son is rasing his children on it. But I have to send it to them, they live in another state. It’s a family tradition!

  • I grew up on “korpua” (spelled wrong I’m sure) and coffee. I was 3 years old dunking my buttered korpua in coffee. We lived in Detroit so when we went up to Houghton, my mom would always buy a few bags to bring home. I still love it!!!
