Rancho’s comin’ to Vancouver Island!

Posted by & filed under article, video.

We can’t express how excited we are to be heading to Vancouver Island to set up our South Island Harvest Event! This has been many years in the making. We finally buckled down, found a great hall to host us (The Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney) and got the ball rolling to make this happen… Read more »


Green Bean Salad

Posted by & filed under recipe.

I’m a believer in eating a variety of different salads year-round. Aside from the benefits of eating a wider range of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients for your body, it also keeps you from getting bored with your meals. I really enjoy how the flavours come together with the ingredients in this salad and… Read more »


Chicken Crusted with Almond and Flax

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Richard Potvin has shared his great recipe for an alternative to traditional breadcrumb-crusted chicken.

You… Read more »


All about: Hazelnuts

Posted by & filed under article, recipe.

Hazelnuts, also commonly known as filberts, are produced by the hazel tree. People have been cultivating hazelnuts for approximately 9,000 years. Hazelnuts are now grown all over the world, with Turkey being the largest producer by a large margin, followed by Italy and the USA. We source our nuts from a lesser-known area for hazelnut… Read more »


Mango & Fig Smoothie

Posted by & filed under recipe.

While I know most smoothie lovers usually use fresh or frozen fruit, reconstituting dried fruit is another great alternative, especially in the winter months when fresh fruit is hard to find and can be very expensive. The other benefit to using dried fruit is that you can buy in bulk (wholesale ordering is coming up… Read more »
