Come Join Me

This blog is about food.  Yummy food!  Food that is fresh, tasty and grown as close to home as possible.

I am looking for the specific niche of “Made in Canada”.  That means it is grown here (if it grows here, I realize our climate is limited) made or processed, and packaged right here in our own Country.

I am particularly fond of raw, natural or organic varieties and will focus on those products primarily.

Come join me on the journey from coast to coast, province by province, all over this beautiful land, in pursuit of Canadian Food and discover all those creative and caring people who labor to bring it to our table.
