Here Are the Few Things We Believe In:
Healthy food, healthy life style, healthy environment: we recycle, we compost, we have our own organic garden.
We believe in being kind and fair and giving back to the community.
Our Relationship with Our Customers
We enjoy serving our customers. We are happy to offer personal support because we really believe that any concerns and questions you may have are important. We choose quality over convenience that is why we answer your phone calls and your emails personally.
Our customers have become our friends and this is no accident. Our friendships are based on earned trust and carrying. We care and we have always cared about our customer/friends.
Who We Are
We are down to earth organic food enthusiasts. We believe in what we do and we believe in our purpose which is to provide top quality healthy organic food to our customers.

What We Eat
95% of the time we eat organic and locally grown food, we believe that this is healthier. Since we support local farmers, we know where our food is coming from.
Health Over Convenience
We would rather choose healthy food over the convenience of ready made food and therefore, we take the time to prepare our food as much as possible. Preparing our own food is a labour of love: cooking, baking our own breads and deserts, making cheese, yoghurt, fermented foods, condiments, spice mixes and essential oils.
Eddy is a great cook and I’m not too bad myself;)

Every summer we grow organic vegetables on a 500sq. foot garden. We buy very little produce from May to October, since we have many things in our garden. BH.
We have a young orchard that we established ourselves 6 years ago. We have apples, pears, cherries, plums, currants, blueberries and other fruits and berries.
This is a young vineyard that we established 5 years ago. Our first harvest of white grapes (Frontenac Blanc) was in 2013 and that is when we had our first batch of wine. The red grapes will be 4 years old in 2015.
Among other things we have a small shitake mushroom production. It took some work to establish the mushrooms, but they are definitely the best organic shitakes we have ever tasted. We love eating these mushrooms and our friends and relatives keep asking us if we have more mushrooms to share.
Herbs and Medicinal
I like to make use of wild herbs and medicinal plants. Most of the time our children can’t distinguish between the leaves in their salad, but they tell me it tastes good ;). My family and friends love my herbal tea blend that I harvest myself. We use it throughout the winter to support our immune system and to prevent colds. Pine needle tea was a huge hit as well.
My book, ‘The Savvy Organic Shopper’s Guide’ is available on amazon.com. Here is the link.
I firmly believe that organic food can be affordable to most people and not a privilege of the wealthy. You just need to know a few tricks of the trade;)
Eddy’s book, a creative non fiction and is not out yet. The manuscript was just completed and professionally edited. He is presently looking for a publisher or an agent, so if you happen know anyone please let him know. I will let everyone know as soon as his book becomes available. Hint, it’s not about organic food 😉
Staying active, spending time outdoors, eating well, being grateful and giving to others are fundamental to our wellbeing. It also makes us, our family and our friends feel happy. And it gives us the energy to provide you with top quality food.
