I work very hard to find suppliers and vendors, Farm Partners and Butchers as close to my farm as possible. I ensure this local food business enriches our local economy. No point in selling local food, if you don’t spend the money in your local community! So I do. I buy from the local hardware store, the local butchers, we use local transportation companies and feed suppliers.
AND Farmers, actual farmers! I partner with actual farmers. NONE of the meat I sell comes from a meat wholesaler. Can your local butcher shop say that? Ask, I was surprised to find out the meat sold in some local butcher shops comes from anywhere in North America. Not here!
EVERY animal processed is from my farm or one of the amazing family farmers who grow for me. Its a point of pride for me to tell you I have worked hard to establish these awesome relationships. I am so thankful and proud of the legion of talented Organic and Eco Farmers I partner with.
These regular and everyday folks are respected business people. 98% of ALL our suppliers and vendors are located no more than 161 kms from my farm. Small family run business working to make a difference in the quality of the local economy.
94% Of all my expenses are shared among these local businesses. 94% of the money I spend to operate the farm business, the day to day things all happen within a 161 kms of my Farm.
Think about it, feed, fencing supplies, hardware and building supplies for repairs, tractor parts, butchering, fuel, all local. That is pretty awesome! AND, that is truly what local means!
Growing and making high quality, respectfully and ecologically grown and farmed food to feed our family, friends, and neighbors. Our customer base is Ontario. All of Ontario! Anywhere in Ontario. If you are in Ontario I want to feed you!
So Ontario, when we say local, please know, we actually mean local! Help me keep our neighbors and fellow Ontarian’s employed, buy our Meats!
