I was raised in the middle of a steel city, in a steel working family, but my Dad was always a lover of the land. He grew most of our fruit and vegetables, and what he didn’t grow himself, came from the local farms in our areas. Every fall, our back porch was filled with bushels of apples, peaches, and tomatoes, all waiting to be turned into preserves for the winter. Anyone who was raised that way knows that nothing from the grocery stores tastes as good as farm fresh
That’s why I’m hoping that the beef farmers’ co-op in Echo Bay, Ontario is an idea that catches on. Penokean Hills Farm is a co-operative of 9 beef farmers in the Sault Ste. Marie area who were tired of the status quo in beef production. If you live in the area, instead of having your beef moved hundreds of miles, processed, and then shipped back to your grocery store, you can head over to the co-op and buy fresh, hormone free beef, that comes straight from the farmer that raised it.
