Food author, Lynn Ogryzlo at the Ancaster Farmers' Market in one weeks time!

Wed Sept 21st, 3-5pm, 272 Wilson St E (St John Anglican Church), Ogryzlo's newest book, The Ontario Table, is a farm resource, culinary travel guide and a beautiful cookbook. But it goes further as Ogryzlo has also issued ‘The Ontario Table $10 Challenge” arguing that if every household spent $10 on local food each week, it would mean a 2.4 billion dollar annual influx into our provincial economy. Her book will be available for sale.

Rural Routes goes to The Boar and Chick!

The sun was shining, the pigs and piglets were lounging, and Tania (the farmer) led us through their beautiful farm. Rural Routes spent our September trip at The Boar and Chick, Troy, ON that specialize in wild boar and free run eggs.
We learned about their Berkeshire pigs that were much larger then we anticipated and were led around to their beaver pond. It was a great day!
Thank you to Tania of The Boar and Chick for hosting us and thank you to Tracy at San-Barr Farms who helped out as well. We had a great time! Get tickets for the October trip to Simpler Thyme Organic Farm - Sat Oct 15th! for more information.
