New Butcher in South-East Toronto

There's a new butcher at Queen & Logan whom I've been using. They are directly connected to local farmers and can tell you the history of anything you buy - and give you great recipe/cooking tips.

See this link to a recent Toronto Star article about Rowe Farms. http://www.thestar.com/article/404619

A New Year

A new season of local foods is now in full swing. Here in Ontario we're getting strawberries - the start of a new year! Some would argue that ramps, spinach, asparagus and fiddleheads mark the new year, and others wait until August corn before getting excited.

Along with the new growing season, we've noticed a marked difference in the profile of eating local and sustainable. More and more people are getting educated about where their food comes from and the issues at play. It's been a great year!
