We understand the importance of eating fresh and healthy. We also appreciate our customers’ desire for fresh, locally grown organic food (produced typically within a 100 mile radius) that is affordable. Given the short growing season we live in, fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers vary from year to year, but the variety of local products we do have sell well because of their excellent quality and affordable price.
Our chicken comes fresh from Ferme Aux Saveur des Monts in Val-Des-Monts. It is grain-fed and free of antibiotics and hormones. This poultry has that old-fashioned delicious full flavour that you or someone from previous generations might remember. Our local poultry is delivered fresh every Thursday. From them, we also carry chicken sausages, ground chicken and fresh turkeys at Thanksgiving.
We’ve always been picky about the quality of our beef. We are supplied by two local producers: Bayview Farm, owned and operated by Stefan and Gail Steiner near Thurso, Quebec. Their beef is raised hormone and antibiotic free and without animal by-products.
We are one of the few stores in the area who get FRESH local beef that we age and butcher ourselves on premises. This allows for maximum flavour and tenderness. We are so confident that this will be the best beef you have ever tasted, we have a Money Back Guarantee!
