A message from Rachael:

There is lots of time yet to order, but I love getting the basics early so I don't forget, then fleshing out my order at the last minute. You never quite know what the week will bring.

Yesterday was one of those days when I needed a little bit of good chocolate and then the egg nog ice cream from Silver + Boots somehow disappeared. I can't blame the kids. Sadly it's limited run has ended but it is now replaced with a new flavour: Fresh ginger and honey ice cream. From Anne:
The ice cream will be made with local honey as the sweetener and fresh ginger pieces. It seems that ginger honey tea is particularly popular this time of year, we figured we could mix it up a bit and turn it into ice cream! It'll ward off those seasonal colds and we are always looking for an excuse to eat ice cream :)

We are now an award winning business!
Thank you to those who nominated us for the 2014 Ontario Organic Awards and to the the Organic Council of Ontario for choosing us as the recipient of the Outstanding Sales and Marketing Award. We are truly honoured and will do our best to continue with excellent sales and marketing in 2014 and beyond! You can see the other award recipients at

Giving Back
- Welcome Home Refugee Housing Community
I realize now that I haven't said much about the organization that we have been donating food and money to for a few years now. After each pickup there is extra food. We'd love to sell or eat it all, but this is better!
Welcome Home is a Refugee Housing Community and thanks to you they have been eating better since the Summer of 2011 when Erica and Anita offered to pick up extra food at the end of each pickup.
Every year since, we have continued donating extra food and 2013 is the third year we have sent Welcome Home a cheque earmarked to buy food for the refugee families in residence! In 2013 we received over $300 in donations through our order form (look for the 'donation' item in the 'other' section). Some members give $5 per week and have a lovely donation and tax receipt at the end of the year!
You can learn more about Welcome Home at International Teams Canada will be providing receipts for all donations over $10.00

They wrote about us in their newsletter at about our 2012 donation and we received a note from Sharon this year that we would like to pass on to you:
Thank you for your activism and kindness to refugees at Welcome Home! The fresh fruit and veggies you help up provide is met with such gratitude by the families you are helping. We count it a real privilege to have Bailey's support.
