The produce is delivered to your door each week for 20weeks and is all organic and grown in Zephyr, Ontario. The farm also recommends you come visit the farm at some point and take a look at how they grow their produce and they even say you can help if you want! They have a local produce "Store" at the farm as well. The pricing was awesome in my opinion; we will pay $28.50/wk and still have money left in the budget for the fruit/veggies that may not come in the basket that week but we want!
There is an open house happening this Saturday June 2nd. Check out www.zephyrorganics.com for more details.
As far at meat goes, the jury is still out. I have been recommended a few local suppliers of organic meat, which also supply to Nature's Emporium but I would assume the price would be a little cheaper buying straight from the farm. They sell packages, samplers or huge orders. They will deliver if your order if you'd like which i LOVE.
Here are two options for local organic meat that I had recommended to me;
www.brookersmeat.com - Brooker's Meat in Schomberg
www.berettaorganics.com - Beretta Organics in Etobicoke
I'd love to know of any others that you may know of.
