Easter Brunch: Local Country-Style Ham or Free Range Turkey


Are you planning an Easter celebration with family, friends, or neighbours? We are offering pre-orders of locally-raised free range turkeys or country-style hams for your holiday feast.

About VG Meats Country-Style Hams: The Van Groningen family started serving Norfolk County families from their VG Meats store in 1970. On their farm, they are shifting production methods towards following Joel Salatin’s approach of sustainable farming. While not grown on their farm, VG hams come from pig farmers in southern Ontario. Here’s a recipe (and video) for how to prepare your Easter ham right from Grandma VG herself. Country Style bone-in hams are $2.99/lb. Boneless are $3.79/lb – your choice.

About the Ross Family Farm’s free-range turkeys (frozen): Located in Wellington County (north of Waterloo), Buck Ross and his family have been farming for four generations. They’re the only commercial producers in Ontario allowed to grow fully free-range turkeys. Their turkeys enjoy fresh air, direct sunlight, large outdoor yards, fresh water, and all-natural locally-grown feed. We recently visited the Buck Ross at his farm – read about it and check out our photos here. These turkeys are frozen, will range from 14-18 lb, and are at a special price of $50 each.
