A Message from Rachael:

I'm going to start with a few important notes and get chatty at the end:

  • Gordon's Goat Dairy cheese is available this week and then not until December 5th! Bethany reminds us that their cheese is GMO free!
  • New Moon Kitchen cookies are on sale this pickup! Regularly $6 per box they are $5 per box for this pickup! Stock up for a tasty cookie that is egg, dairy and peanut free - They are super tasty and there is a gluten free cookie too!
  • Rutabaga is on the list for sure this week. I even double checked! =)
  • Endive (not Belgian) is also available. We froze it last year for winter dishes!
  • You can order McKechnie tortillas and chips as well as prepared Green Table Foods
  • We have some new prepared foods! Cafe Pyrus is offering a great range of soups, dips and other vegan tastiness!
  • Jerusalem Artichokes (not the green artichokes) are ready too! They are very tasty and you can cook them in many of the same ways you prepare potatoes!
  • We would like to welcome a couple new suppliers: Nathan of Nith Valley Organics will have tasty produce and winter greens for us and Judy of Anam Cara Farm will be offering Tamworth Pork and Muscovy Duck! More on them in as upcoming email!
New tasty vegan meals from Cafe Pyrus!
We have an exciting new supplier! Lauren has decided to cook for us! We’re very excited to offer her tasty food. Here is a note from Lauren introducing you to our new offerings:

Pyrus cafe is keeping it fresh, offering vegan deliciousness made with local, organic ingredients, and a whole lot of love! The cafe offers fresh baked vegan treats with gluten free and sugar free options, as well as single origin, direct trade, organic and fair trade coffees and teas. Visit the cafe at 16 Charles St in Kitchener for a taste of the full menu.

Crock Pot - delicious!
Aura has finally pulled out her crockpot to show us that you can make gourmet meals without slaving in the kitchen all day. Her post is at http://foodaura.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/time-to-pull-out-the-crock-pot/. She used chicken from Snyder Heritage Farms, Kernal Peanut Butter, local carrots, onions garlic and frozen peas as well as dried hot peppers and soya sauce from Pristine Gourmet! Too bad we don't have local ginger or white wine vinegar available... I think the vinegar would be possible at least!

Bags of carrots?!
Candace of Transpire organic brings you very fresh and tasty produce from her small farm where she grows veggies for us and for her CSA. Her carrots are dug by hand and bunched or bagged on the day you receive them. It's a labour of love and worth it (we're spoiled)! Her farm is on the Pfenning Farm and she has amazing support from Wolfgang Pfenning and has befriended the staff at the Pfenning Farm. If you don't already know, Pfenning's is the organic giant in town and we are so lucky to have them as a supplier to bring us local and organic foods grown by them or brought in from other local farmers. They are running at a pretty large scale and if you ever wondered how the carrots and potatoes get washed and bagged you can check out the videos that Candace took on the Pfenning's floor! http://transpireorganic.ca/entries/field/this-week-in-video-ever-wonder-all-the-work-that-goes-to-put-those-carrots-into-the-bags-you-buy-check-it-out Thanks Candace!

Stay Warm!
