Hello lovers of local food!

Wasn't the pickup day on Monday AMAZING? We are so lucky to have so much local food in December! Enjoy it while it's here! I went home to get my camera, but never took a photo.

Isn't this a lovely blast of winter we've gotten? Sure, it would have been nice to have some schools and businesses closed like our friends down the highway in London, but lots of snow really makes pick up day less fun.

This will be the last pickup of 2010 with almost a month until the January 17th pickup. We're taking the holidays off and will have the order form ready for you on January 5th. Stock up on all your favourites! Have you planned your holiday meal(s) yet? If you're cooking turkey you have lots of time to defrost the one you pick up on the 20th!

This week's order form is extra special. We have many new and amazing products to offer you. One of them is Monforte cheese! I've wanted to offer it since I became a part of Bailey's but Ruth Klassen took a year off of cheese making to build a dairy in Stratford (Wow!) Even more exciting is we will be taking vouchers from those of you who are subscribers to the Monforte CSA! Obviously, the vouchers can only be used for up to the amount of cheese you purchase (in $5 increments).

Other great items on offer this week are:
  • Paul Bowman is offering his 'LOFT' Strawberry Jam on Sale and he also has greens available!
  • Paul has also decided to grate and freeze his butternut squash so that we can have it available to us further into the winter.Look for it in the 'squash' section under 'vegetables'
  • Golden Hearth Bakery is now offering frozen Pizza dough!!!You can get Spelt, Unbleached and Whole Wheat to make a perfect pizza at home!
  • Did you taste the samples of Evelyn's Crackers? They are truly gourmet and would be wonderful for sharing over the holiday season as gifts or on a tray with cheese and such. Look for them for a special holiday price too!
  • Did you taste the From These Roots jams on Monday? I bet they'd go great with any of the cheeses
  • New Moon Kitchens vegan spelt Cookies are also new on the offering list. So tasty and made with Oak Manor Spelt Flour. They even have a Gluten Free Mackies available!
  • Gift Baskets are gorgeous and great for that person who has everything. Imagine their delight at a lovely array of local goodies!
  • Want to share the gift of Bailey's? Buy your neighbour a one year membership to Bailey's Local Foods and the gift of pear apple sauce too!
Pickup Day Extras
We will have vendors again on December 20th, Thanks to all those who participated on Monday. This is the last call for anyone interested in showing their wares. All table proceeds will be donated to a local food based charity. Let us know as soon as possible. Space will fill up quickly.

Also, we will be collecting toiletry items for the House of Friendship again. Thank you so much for your generosity on Monday!

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Remember that Eggs are now in the dairy section! Once someone explains why tomatoes are vegetables, then we can try to figure out why Eggs are dairy...

Keep warm,
Rachael and Maryrose,
Bailey's Local Foods

P.S. We can use your fruit boxes, baskets and jars from preserves again if you return them.
