The first day of spring  and the cold and snow got us thinking about the weather. As farmers, the weather is a huge part of our lives. Get any farmers together and the first topic of conversation is often the weather. What it has been, what it is and what we hope it will be over the next few months. 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.

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...

Our Turkeys are Orlopp Bronze turkeys. Orlopp Bronze turkeys have a beautiful natural black feathering. The meat is a very light caramel colour and boasts a very rich, complex flavour.

Many retailers have taken all the value away from turkeys. They are using turkeys as a loss leader, this means that they are making zero money on the turkey just to get you into their store. When a retailer gives you a free turkey if you spend $250, or has a price of $.88 per lb, the turkeys that they are giving away have to be grown very cheaply. This means that they are fed the cheapest feed and...

On Monday and Tuesday of this week we had our annual organic inspection. This year we had three inspectors out for our inspection, the organic inspector, an auditor who was auditing the inspector and an inspector in training. They physically inspected the land, animals, buildings and records and took a full two days in order to go through everything thoroughly. This inspection by an independent third-party auditor is a critical component to being certified organic. This verification that the...

We raise the Orlopp Bronze Turkey. This is an heirloom turkey that has beautiful black feathers and a wonderful flavor. Our Christmas turkeys are raised inside spacious barns where they are protected from Alberta’s cold and unpredictable winter weather. The barn has lots of windows to let in the sunshine and the turkeys are given lots of room to move around and express their natural behaviours. Their feed contains alfalfa, so they continue to get grass in their diet.The...
