They're off for the day. Our sheep families are WILTSHIRE HORNED SHEEP.
The Wiltshire Horns are an “easy care” breed. As a hair sheep, not a wool producer, they do not require shearing and therefore do not have any of the problems associated with wool production, but their hair is thick enough to insulate against Canadian winters.

They are also renowned for their sturdy legs and good feet which is essential in all livestock production.

Happy Monday!Have a wonderful week!

Have you heard our Story?
Harley Farms originated in East Kennett, England. Roger and Julie, together with our children James and Emily, used natural farming protocols to farm over 4,500 acres that included 2,500 breeding ewes and lambs, 1,000 head of fattening cattle, outdoor farrow to finish hogs, and also producing all our own winter supply of forage.

In 2000, we moved to Canada from the UK and in 2002 we purchased our present farms near Keene, Ontario where we started working on, and developing sustainability agricultural standards and protocols, that would work in Canada, to cover the sustainability of the environment, animal welfare and the financial well being of the farmer.

Our goal is to produce livestock and crops in a way that aligns with the surrounding natural environment and with a special focus on animal and bird welfare. For more information visit our Regenerative Agriculture page. As a result, our customers can have confidence that Harley Farms products are fully traceable and come from livestock which are humanely and sustainably raised.

Our farming system is grounded in the belief that our animals should be raised as humanely and naturally as possible. As a result, our farm animals are kept together in family groups for most of their lives, which reduces their stress levels and supports their overall health. We also believe in maximizing the use of our pastures and forage crops, which allows the animals to subsist predominantly on the plants and crops they are meant to consume, thereby reducing our dependency on grains in our livestock finishing program.

We strive to provide our animals with as much fresh air and abundant space to roam as possible, preferring to shelter rather than confine them. Our Heritage Tamworth sows, for example, can be seen out in the fields year-round with their young. Even on the coldest, snowiest days, the pigs seem happiest outside as long as they have a dry and warm shelter to retreat to when they’re ready to come in. We breed livestock best suited to the climate and surrounding environment and likely to thrive and fatten off a pasture and forage based diet.

Because they lactose." HAHA
Actually, Cows have hooves instead of feet because hooves provide better support for their massive body weight and makes it easier for them to move on rugged terrain.

Not only are they one of the only farms in Ontario that are SPCA certified, they also pride themselves on providing products that are fully traceable and come from livestock which are grass-fed, free range, and 100% GMO free.

We're looking forward to carrying their turkeys this holiday season!

Harley Farms - Natural Farming Grass Fed Beef
We have two more online markets at the depot, and then we will bid a fond farewell to our hosts at St. Anne's Anglican Church. Along with a big debt of gratitude to the whole St. Anne's community for their willingness to give us shelter in a storm, we owe special thanks to the ever-patient Juli, Caretaker of the church campus, who has helped us through more sticky spots than we can count, and to Mary Lou Harrison, our staunch supporter and friend.

I was chatting with one of our packers, Julie Swanson, about the approaching end of an era, and how memorable it has been to work with such a fun and dedicated crew. Packing food into boxes just isn't an adequate description of what goes on inside our depot. Maybe that is because this kind of food connects us so strongly to the producers who bring it to us as well as to the customers who care about those producers. It has really been a big love-in despite the stress and mixups and challenges.

One of the unexpected strengths of the online market is that it is easy to welcome very small scale entrepreneurs to test the waters. One of those is Letitia Mancini of Tish's Dishes, who asked us to join with the tiny handmade pasta business she was developing. How tiny was this business? Well, when her Dad helped make Letitia a pasta drying tree, production tripled!

Letitia is wildly enthusiastic about Italian culinary traditions, and her enthusiasm is contagious.

That's all well and good, you may say, but at this point in the year, when Ontario storerooms are almost empty and the first spring green things are barely beginning to appear, the Mediterranean seems very far away!

After she sent a list of all the courses included in a full, formal Italian dinner, I asked Letitia if that sort of meal would be possible based on foods we have available at the market right now. She was more than up to the challenge; I couldn't take notes fast enough! You may not pull off the whole list of dishes, but I hope you will find ideas to try. Buon appetito!

Letitia says that formal Italian meals, which can last 2 ½ hours or more, follow this progression:

The first course is the APERITIVO - Letitia says her family always included walnuts in the shell, giving a nutcracker to each person in attendance and happily cracking around the table. We have lots of walnuts for sale; you will just need to imagine the cracking because all the ones in the shells are gone. Bubbly beverages are essential, so she recommends Alchemy kombucha, and fermented beet and turnip pickles to nibble, as well as a simple cheese such as Toscano. Keep this course light.

ANTIPASTI - slightly heavier, and includes charcuterie and cheese; think Buschbeck's Summer Sausage alongside Monforte's Amos and Tomme, served with Fennel and Orange-Honey Focaccia or Country Sourdough by Robinson Bread.

PRIMI - the first course with hot food. This is the time to include Tish’s pasta with a simple meatless sauce (like this one we’ve shared before), a risotto made with mushrooms or wild leek greens and chicken broth (on special from Tapioca) or one of Magic Oven's very special Eggplant Lasagnas. Mmm, so many choices.

SECONDI - the protein part of the meal. Grilled Lamb or Roasted Harley Farms' Beef would be appropriate here. This course is accompanied by...

CONTORNI - the vegetable side dishes. Some options would be sauteed Summergreen mushrooms, Sosnicki carrots roasted in the pan with the meat, and small roast potatoes (parboil these, cool them and give them a shake in a colander to roughen the skin before roasting them). Remember to keep portions small; dinner isn't finished yet!

INSALATA comes next: fresh baby arugula and tender lettuce with a simple dressing of two parts olive oil to one part vinegar is so easy and refreshing! Try Marvellous Edibles Farm this week!

FORMAGGI E FRUTTA - After the table is cleared, fresh fruit and cheeses appear: Reyes Mutsu apples go wonderfully with Monforte soft or sharp cheeses.

DOLCE - Dessert can be anything your heart desires, from a Pavlova made with farm fresh eggs (great special from Nature’s Way) and warmed Blueberry Thyme Jam to a soothing ChocoSol Forest Garden Vanilla bar.

CAFFE & DIGESTIVO - Espresso or a digestive alcoholic drink, such as limoncello or grappa are usually served; you may want to have some tonics on hand after all this feasting!

Letitia does admit that everyday meals in her home were shorter, about 45 minutes to an hour, usually consisting of Secondi and Contorni, followed by Insalata then Dolce and Cafe. Occasionally, there would be a Primi course. She has promised to plan another menu in high summer, when the selection is huge.

The real point is to savour time spent at the table enjoying the company of others, and to appreciate the foods we eat. This is not a rehearsal! It's la bella vita!
Happy days from Anne & the Crew

https://www.dufferingrovemarket.ca/2022/04/10/a-truly-unbiased-review/

Hello Market Community,

Matt joining you this week. I’ve written here before about what’s beautiful and what’s strange at the market. The news this year has had a lot of updates from babies to branding to lambing to SEO to CEO’s and returning to the park. We’ve been covering every corner of what makes a farmers’ market community. But…have we missed the pets?

Say hello to my cat Teigel. Teigel means “little dough” and… well, look at him. He is very involved in the Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market, from product testing to developing market holiday bags.

Here is an wholly silly review of what’s hot and what’s not from the perspective of the Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market Felines:

10/10
Dryer Balls
Highly recommend. I kick ’em, scratch ‘em and just cover them in my hair so they smell like home.
All Sorts Acres

9/10
Felted Cat Toys
Pure wool rolling balls from All Sorts Acres. These are great backups for when I’ve already lost all the dryer balls under various pieces of furniture.

8/10
Yukon Gold Potatoes
Almost indistinguishable to me from the felted cat toys. My claws don’t pierce the skin so easily but I like the loud THUD they make when I just whip them across the room. I love batting these out of baskets, boxes, and bags, and leaving them under the couch for nighttime hunting.
Sosnicki Organics

10/10
Harley’s Raw Pet Food
What can I say? I feel seen, I feel heard, I feel catered to.
Harley Farms - Natural Farming

1/10
The Entire Vegan Section
Need I say more?

Paw cream
7/10
Paw Cream for Cats/Dogs
Dear Bees Universe: I do not appreciate being equated to a dog, but my silky soft toe beans speak for themselves. A quick rebranding would make this product a 10/10.
Bees Universe

10/10
It’s In The Bag
What’s in the bag you ask? Me. I am in the bag. I am in every bag I can find. I always need new bags to get all up in. It’s in the Bag has almost completely revamped my wardrobe.

10/10
Turbot Fillet
I could hunt turbot. If I lived on Baffin Island, Nunavut, I would go fishing every day and have nutrient-rich fish oils dripping down my chin while the lily white snow crunched under my toes. Unfortunately, I have been told that the fifth largest island in the world is actually quite inaccessible. I have also been told that snow is cold. I will stick with hunting these First Fish fillets off of the kitchen counter.

100/10
Kawartha Broom Co. Handmade Cat Toy
*jingle*…*jingle*…
*JINGLE* *JINGLE* *JINGLE* *JINGLE!!!*

Matt here again. Thank you all for indulging Teigel on his journey of critical expression.

It’s another wonderful week here at the market. We have Repair Café Toronto in house, as we do every second Thursday of the month. Their volunteers will be onsite during pickup hours, taking in your busted and broken items for repairs. They take all kinds of different fixables, from laptops to boat motors to jewellery. If your item doesn’t quite fit into their current skill set they will always let you know, no harm in asking!

Nature’s Way Certified Organics is back and bringing in mini sweet potatoes along with their favourites like eggs, popcorn, and sunflower oil.

This is THE week to get your fresh Harley Farms Turkey.

20lbs roast turkey
See you Thursday!

Matt, Teigel, and the Market Crew!
