RESERVE YOUR THANKSGIVING TURKEY TODAY

Whilst we enjoy the last few days of summer sunshine our thoughts are already turning to crisp mornings, autumn leaves and the bounty that is the fall harvest, all in perfect time for Thanksgiving.

Our Locally Raised Free Range Birds are from Ireland Farms here in Saanich. These naturally raised turkeys are grain fed, they receive no added hormones or antibiotics and are completely free range.  $4.69/lb

Our BC Raised Free Run Birds are from five generation family run Rossdown Farms, and are also grain fed.  Following successive generations of poultry expertise Rossdown now handles all aspects of its farm from eggs and chicks to turkey feed and preparation. $3.99/lb

Pop in to book your bird at the tills or give us a call at 250-477-9495 ext. 228. Deposit required. Locally smoked and raised hams are also available!

Hot pepper season is in full swing – look at all these beauties in the store right now.  It couldn’t be easier to pickle your favourite pepper for a little warmth (well – dependent on your pepper choice, it’s feasible the word ‘fiery inferno’ may be more apropos here!) throughout the winter season ahead.

Click here or the image below for a step by step recipe to super simple refrigerated pickled peppers – feel free to slice or halve just one or perhaps several varieties, and add garlic and spices with abandon. Pop a lid on it and you’re done. Try something new this month and get your pickle on!

 

Sustainable, dairy free, gluten free, environmentally friendly, non GMO and most of all, super DELICIOUS!  YES, really!

Made with organic cricket protein flour from Ontario and all natural whole ingredients these bars are available in Peanut Butter (with apples, pears and honey) or Dark Chocolate Raisin (with sunflower seeds, chocolate chips and vanilla) in store from today!

So why crickets?  Well, we all know food security and industrial production are key discussion topics at the forefront of our society –  for the future of not just our farmers, but also of ourselves and our environment.

This is where crickets come in – not only are they a complete protein (with all 9 key amino acids) chock full of vitamins and minerals, they require 2000x less water than cows, produce 100x less emissions and require significantly less land.  Wow!  Next time you pop in for produce why not try something new and join us in looking towards a future with sustainable protein.

 

 

When to buy organic… That is the question! Here’s one of our favourite references for knowing when and how to make the healthiest choices!
