A message from Rachael:

Our next pickup is January 13th so be sure to stock up for family meals, New Year celebrations, back to work and school too!!  Be sure that you have enough pantry items like butter, oil and maple syrup. 

Think ahead and have hostess gifts on hand. A jar of preserves, a bar of chocolate, some nuts or caramels. Give your friends a great gift that you might like to receive!

Holiday goodness includes:

  • A turkey or ham for your holiday meal. The GMO Free Turkey from Snyder Heritage Farms is the best you can buy and though we sell it frozen, you can thaw yours in 24 hours or less in water. I'd also suggest brining your bird... it  makes for a tasty meal!
  • Don't forget fresh cranberries (non local - from Ottawa) to make your cranberry sauce!
  • Chestnuts from Warner Fruit Farms to roast on an open fire (or in the oven). We're amazed at how sweet local chestnuts are compared to the imports!
  • Tasty baked goods and prepared foods from Winnie's Gluten Free are back on the order form after a quick break for her daughter's wedding. I'm taking advice from a customer and getting Tourtière for a tasty meal on a snowy day... my kids love Winnie's muffins and waffles. Did you see that she is now offering Lasagna too?
  • Egg nog... I have confirmed (and pre-ordered) Egg Nog from Organic Meadow for the 23rd! Order with confidence that you *will* enjoy the nog...
  • If you didn't make fruit cake, we have a few kinds to choose from. We have lots of Christmas Cookies too if you didn't have time to bake!
  • Have you picked a selection of cheese for your cheese tray? One of the newest selections we have is Cream Cheese in from Gordon's Goat Dairy (look under goat cheeses') You can choose from plain or chive flavours. We really liked it! You can cut the corner of the package and squeeze it right onto a cracker!
  • We tried the Chihuahua cheese from Local Dairy last week. It is great straight or melted.... It would be amazing on nachos!
  • Chocolate from Anna Tolazzi and Ambrosia Pastry Co. as thank you gifts and hostess gifts
  • Nuts from Jewels under the Kilt is another great hostess gift idea.
  • Salad greens. We're blessed to have farmers who grow them for us all winter! Availability is limited as they don't have enough light to grow with these short days and long nights!
  • Vibrant Farms beef individual cuts, stewing beef and ground beef are back in stock! Order now (you can even stock up!) to get your favourite cuts of pastured beef - grass fed and finished. It's organic too!
  • Harrington Lane Farms is offering BULK Lamb boxes - Approximately 15 lb of lamb for $13 per pound! You will find Lamb Chops (3-4 lbs), Leg Roast (3-4 lbs), Stewing Lamb (3-4 lbs), Ground Lamb (3-4 lbs)
  • We have Goose from Top Market Meats as well as Bauman Apiaries
  • Ontario Natural Tofu and Henry's Tempeh if your choice of protein is not animal based!
  • A treat for the furry friend in your life. Raw Ground Turkey from Snyder Heritage Farms in individual serving sized blocks (not for human consumption!)
Gift Baskets!
We're happy to make gift baskets with the items YOU want included for any dollar amount and can also include a membership if you want to give friends or family the gift of local food! Order online or email us to arrange a custom basket!

Niagara Fruit
All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids fungicidal baths and defuzzing of peaches. The size of the fruit may be bigger or smaller as well.

Here is the Niagara Fruit we have From Warner's Farms this week:
Juices! Fresh Apple Pear Cider as well as Preserved Cranberry-Grape and Concord Grape (in 'beverages' under 'pantry')
Quince - a fruit that is high in pectin and best stewed with apples or in pie or made into jam (the original marmalade)
Cranberries - Fresh from Upper Canada Cranberries in Ottawa (not from within 100 miles)
Pears: Flemish Beauty, Harrow Delight, Bartlett, Bosc, D'Anjou and HW623
Tree Nuts: Chestnuts are still available!
Crabapples too!

Upcoming events:
There is a Lantern Walk on December 21 in the Breithaupt neighbourhood - Check out the details at http://lanternwalk.wordpress.com/event/

Stay warm,
