We are often asked how we got started making sausages, deli meats and bacon the way we do without artificial preservatives, artificial flavors or colours, and without fillers. This started because we believe in the importance of eating pure food for our health and for the environment. When our youngest daughter Erin was little she had severe food allergies to chemical preservatives and many of the fillers that are used in processed meats such as wheat and dairy. We...

On the farm the warmer weather is welcomed because our tasks and chores are much easier than in the cold weather, however there is a bit of apprehension as we ramp up to our summer outdoor production.

For all farmers the snow that we received in February and March was a great blessing. It was looking...

At the market the other day… “Your sold out of your wonderful bacon again. Why can’t you make more bacon so it would last longer?” Why shouldn’t we just make more bacon? That’s a simple question that requires a not so simple answer. We would love to make more of our nitrate free bacon, but it isn’t as simple as turning on a tap. Our small family farm only has a certain number of sows and to increase the...

In the last couple of weeks I have been viewing and listing to motivational speakers. It is the time of the year to think about the upcoming year and trying to set some goals for the rest of the year. A very common theme that the motivational speakers had was to dream. From the dreams we can then set goals to strive for. The backbone of dreams and goals are lifestyle goals. When we want to live as a...
