A Message from Rachael:

Oh my what a lovely unseasonably warm Sunday! There was a great turnout at the Waterloo cenotaph for Rememberance Day and at our house the afternoon was spent cleaning up the backyard and garden (instead of sending this email). Now I hurt, but the yard is ready for winter!

It's really comfort food season. We've been enjoying soups and roasts and are anticipating crock pot meals too. That and popcorn. Yum. What are your favourite foods when the weather cools down?

Mary and Pete from Apple Creek Farm have diversified this year. After loosing their organic apple crop to a late frost they are growing potatoes as well as heirloom and slicing tomatoes in their greenhouse! I got a quick note from Mary last week when it was quite cold out saying: the greenhouse is 70 degrees right now with a wood fire going out there. I hope to keep it going for a few more weeks... we will see how the night time temperatures go :) While we don't have organic apples, we DO have organic apple butter and apple sauce! Honey too!

Herbal Loose Leaf Teas from Little City Farm, Kitchener
With cooler weather comes a great excuse for a hot cup of teat to warm the hands and the soul. We have a great selection of locally blended herbal teas and are excited to again offer Karin's lovely blends.

From Karin:
These delicious loose leaf herbal teas are grown at the Little City Farm urban homestead in Kitchener using sustainable methods, and/or wild harvested carefully, and/or purchased from certified organic sources.  We are very happy to have Brenda Knechtel (Wellesley) growing some certified organic herbs for us that we do not have the space to grow ourselves.  Karin is a certified herbalist and has created these tea blends to provide nutrition, healing and strengthening for the body, including blends that aid with stress, winter flu, sleep, and digestion.

The loose leaf blends come packaged in a brown kraft paper bag, made of post-consumer recycled materials.  Each tea is labelled with an ingredient list and details on how to brew your perfect cup of tea.  Each bag holds 40 grams, which is enough to make approximately 10 pots of tea.  These special teas are prepared in small batches and will only be available for a limited time. We have: After Dinner Tea, Winter Flu Fighter, Less Stress Tea and Sweet Dreams Tea available now!

A few other great things to look for
  • Dips from Green Table Foods (as sampled at the last pickup) in the 'prepared' section under 'dips and salsas'
  • Did you taste the Macarons, Springerle and Florentines from Ambrosia Pastry Co.? They are on the order form now!
  • Sauerkraut. Good and good for you! In the 'prepared' section. Awesome warm with sausage!
  • Dried Beans - likely the last order until February! Stock up for soups and bean dip!
  • Organic Flour from Oak Manor - Holiday baking plans anyone?
  • Stock up on your favourite yogurt, apples, cheese and more! Enough for 2 weeks!
  • Chicken Thighs from Snyder Heritage Farms are my kids' favourite!
  • Traditional Foods has boneless cured ham steaks (Berkshire Pork) for $5.25/lb (Reg. $6.25/lb)
