As many of you know in visiting our website or social media platforms, we are a family farm, passionate about what we do. The farm was founded in 1955 and until 2013 we were unable to link what we did on our farm to a product on the shelf. That changed in 2013, we decided that we wanted to put our name on some products so that we could link our story and what we do, to a product consumers could get behind.

Do you know enough about the food that you consume? Or do you need a recipe? We have you covered! Here we will give you information about modern farming. Still, because it's more fun for you to share delicious food then facts about agriculture, we have included some awesome recipes developed by our family.

Orange Creamsicles are a childhood favourite, and so are these healthy smoothies! They are easy to make, being just yogurt, milk, 2 oranges, a frozen banana and a touch of maple syrup.
We have picky eaters at our house, and these smoothies are a solution to get some fresh fruit into our kids.
It’s that time of year, fresh blueberries are among us! This recipe can be made with fresh or frozen berries. And even better, it’s made with just two bowls, a whisk and a spatula. Grab some local berries, pick up two lemons and this is your pantry staple recipe.
If you wait until this cake is completely cool, the glaze will stay thicker, But it is equally delicious served slightly warm with a drippy glaze.
We love an easy dinner, and this Garlicky Baked Shrimp is so fast to make! (just 10 minutes!) It is cooked in garlic and white wine, and topped with a sprinkle of buttery panko. Finish it off with fresh lemon juice and herbs.
Serve it as is with a side of roasted vegetables. Or, our favourite is to top buttered linguini pasta noodles with these baked shrimp! Make Baked Garlicy Shrimp as your next simple weekday dinner.
I love easy make-ahead breakfasts! These Sausage and Spinach Eggs bites are good enough even my 1-year-old will eat some greens at breakfast. They are made with Italian Sausage, onions, spinach, eggs and milk. When the kids are having them, we use Mild Italian Sausage, but I love to make a batch with Spicy Sausage for myself.
Try sprinkling the tops with a bit of cheddar before baking. It’s extra delicious!
This chocolate cake recipe is from our friend, and exceptional chef, Jennie! The cake is easy to make and delicious! It has quickly become a family favourite. The cake is versatile enough to decorate however you want. Try it with whip and berries, simply sprinkled with powdered sugar, or our favourite, with Chocolate and Peanutbutter Buttercream.
Peanut Butter and chocolate… chocolate and peanut butter… it’s the perfect pair, always. My very favourite is chocolate cake with peanut butter icing.
Chocolate Buttercream is our family’s very favourite. It’s easy to make, creamy and buttery. When making the icing, make sure your butter is room temperature, and your chocolate has melted and cooled to room temperature as well. Pair it with any cake, you won’t be disappointed!
Who doesn’t love Skor Chocolate Bars? Chocolate and Toffee.. now combine that into a cookie… You’re going to love it. It’s a chocolate chip cookie, amped up. When it’s someone’s birthday, we love to bake them a batch of cookies and these Skor Cookies are ALWAYS a hit. Sprinkle a dash of sea salt on top for the salt lover in your life!
Easy, pretty and healthy! These Loaf Pan Popsicles are made with just yogurt and fruit! For the top layer, we use mango, middle layer strawberries, and the bottom layer blackberries. Play around with different fruits for a fun, striped treat!
It’s strawberry season! After visiting our local Strawberry Farm we needed to recipe test and create a new recipe. These healthy Strawberry Yogurt & Oat Muffins are delicious, sweetened only with Maple Syrup and loaded with fresh strawberries.
Our Roasted Red Pepper Dip is so versatile and so good! Enjoy it as a dip for fresh veggies, crackers or a spread for sandwiches. The dip is yogurt-based and requires 1 cup of our Natural Heritage Grass Fed Yogurt. Adding goat cheese gives it additional creaminess and it’s simply seasoned with fresh dill, garlic, salt and pepper.
5 Minute Extra Chocolatey Pudding. So easy to make! So quick to prepare! Serve it warm or cold, either way, it’s delicious. Just make sure to top it with some whipped cream and fresh fruit!
It’s iced coffee season and we are here for it! Our Browned Butter Syrup is just two simple ingredients, browned butter and maple syrup. The combination is a dreamy caramelly taste. It’s so good added to coffee as a velvety smooth sweetener!
This is going to be your new favourite summer pasta. So easy, so delicious. The real star of the show in this recipe is our Grass Fed Heritage Sea Salted Butter. It must be Sea Salted and it must be our Heritage Grass Fed – Trust us on this one.
We haven’t even gotten to the best part.. 5 ingredients! All you will need is:
A whole lot of goodness goes into this smoothie! Yogurt, milk, avocado, banana and spinach! When we have it, we add in some fresh mint leaves, otherwise Peppermint Extract will do. Add in a handful of Chocolate Chips for a real treat. Refreshing and Delicious!
A good banana muffin is a staple at our house. With the addition of chocolate? Well, that’s a no brainer! These muffins are made with 5 bananas, our grass-fed heritage yogurt and butter, and some pumpkin pie spice gives it just the right flavour. (more…)
Happy World Milk Day!
We will be celebrating with some Fun Pops and a tall glass of our Grass Fed Heritage milk!
These fun pops are easier to make than you would think. We skip a step by using a box of yellow cake mix! Check out our Instagram Reels for a quick video of the process!
This Old Fashioned Hot Milk Cake comes together with less than 10 ingredients. It’s simple, wholesome and delicious. It has an added touch of cinnamon and vanilla and pairs well with icing, or our favourite, fresh whipped cream and berries!
It’s peanut butter, chocolate chips, and a silky smooth chocolate drizzle.. you really can’t go wrong with this combo.
Thijs, our two-year-old, loves cookies. These are his very favourite. It helps that these cookies are easy to make, so Thijs can help make the dough while his younger brother naps.
Switch up pasta night with this Creamy Bacon Pesto Pasta. This pasta sauce comes together so easily and quickly. It’s indulgent and so delicious!
