The Season Has Officially Begun! 🌱

We did our first seeding of the season last week and our little plant friends have already begun to sprout.

The veggies we seeded included onions, scallions and parsley. And the flowers included snap dragon, campanula, larkspur and stock. We can't wait to get our hands back in the dirt!

 

NEW PRODUCTS

Potatoes Are Back In Stock 

We were able to get one last order from our friend and fellow farmer Janet Spicer of Spicer Farms in Nakusp. She had a new variety of potato for us called Violet Queen that we're really excited about (bottom right). It has a dark blue skin with a stunning deep purple flesh that retains its colour during cooking.

These will be some of the last potatoes of the winter so make sure to savour every bite because we won't see potatoes again until the middle of July 🥔

About Granby Meat Company

Granby Meat Company is a new butcher shop out of Grand Forks. The owners of Granby also own PV Beef Ranch which has been in their family since 1972. Devin and Brittani are now third generation ranchers and have been running the ranch for the past 5 years.

All of their cows are pasture-raised meaning that these animals spent the majority of their lives outside on a grassy field with the sunlight on their skin, fresh Kooteny air in their lungs, clean water to drink and plenty of nutritious grass to eat.

Their cows diet consists mostly of fresh grass from the mountain range in the summer months. In the winter they're fed a mix of alfalfa, straw, corn silage and rolled barley which is all grown on-farm.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT 🍎

 

Superficial Food 

Historically we've gotten our food from the woods, the water, our neighbors and our gardens. Everything came with a relationship to either nature or a person. 

Our shift to mass-produced foods has taken away these relationships along with our knowledge of the land and our food traditions. Food doesn't just nourish our bodies - it nourishes our identity. It grounds us. And it bonds us together. 

Without a meaningful connection to food our lives can start to feel as superficial and as transient as a trip to the supermarket or a McDonald's drive-thru window.
