Price Increases 😔

You have probably noticed that some of our products have increased in price. As inflation continues to make everything more expensive we had to sit down and take a closer look at our own pricing. We need to make a minimum of 30% on our profit margins for our business to remain viable. Many of our products were well below what we thought they were. This made us realize that we have to raise some of our prices.

Making products with high-quality, locally-sourced and responsibly-grown ingredients requires a higher upfront cost. But that cost does pay dividends in the form of better health, strong local economies, less pollution and of course more flavourful and nutritious food. It doesn’t feel good to raise our prices but we hope you understand why we have to do it.

NEW PRODUCTS

Spinach & Ricotta Calzones

Description: You had a long day, your feel tired and the last thing you want to do is cook. Why not try our frozen Spinach & Ricotta Calzones?

In just 12 minutes you could have a steaming hot calzone fresh from the oven. Cut one open and let the cheesy spinach filling slowly flow out. Pick it up and take a bite. The rustic crust has crispy edges and a satisfying whole wheat flavour. The filling is cheesy and herby and with a touch of spice on the tongue.

These calzones are easy to make, are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser, won’t make a mess and require minimal clean up. What more could you ask for!

About Our Calzones

For these Calzones we started with a combination of our freshly-milled Red Fife flour and Anita’s fine-grind whole wheat flour. This makes for a flavourful crust with a rustic feel. We then hand-fill each Calzone with a three cheese blend of ricotta, mozzarella and Grana Padano parmesan, locally-grown potatoes and garlic, frozen spinach from our farm, and herbs and spices. Once filled we fold the dough over, seal the edges and cut vents on top to let steam out.

Details: Each box contains four large frozen calzones.

It works as a condiment, an ingredient, a dip, and a side dish all on its own.
