Look for Upper Canada Heritage Meat
After a long cold winter, I am very excited to be coming to Ottawa every weekend with coolers full of my delicious pork. This year I’ve added a few new treats: 3 kinds of bacon (including double-smoked and nitrate free), kielbasa and smoked sliced ham. And as always, I will have a great selection of roasts, chops, ribs, and much more.

Easter Sunday is March 31st this year. I will have a limited number of Easter Hams so now’s the time to put in your order. These luscious hams are cured without nitrates and traditionally smoked.
You may order a bone-in or boneless ham ranging from 1 to 6 kg.
A whole ham with bone weighs approximately 5 kg (11 to 12 lbs) at $25 per kg. Boneless hams are $27.50/kg.
I’ll be in Ottawa on Friday, January 18th, delivering pork. Orders over $100 receive free home delivery. Smaller orders will be brought to a central location for pick up (TBA). Please let me know what you would like before January 12th.
No order is too big or too small!
We raised a flock of Ridley Bronze turkeys in 2012 and provided our customers with Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys. Some feedback …
“Merry Christmas and thank you for the amazing turkey! It had everyone raving last night at dinner. We brined ours overnight and it worked very well, giving us moist and tender meat all over. We also cooked it upside down and then flipped it over half way. The dark and white meat arrived at their appropriate temperatures at the same time. We are presently making what we anticipate will be fabulous stock for soup out of the carcass.
Thanks for all the wonderful meat this year. We’ve enjoyed every morsel. We are already looking forward to signing up for another farm share this year. We wish you all the best for 2013!”

Heather’s Healthy Harvest opened its doors in November to rave reviews from Kemptville locavores and those looking for gluten-free and other specialty foods. Heather is stocking her freezer with local, ethically raised pork exclusively from Upper Canada Heritage Farm. She’s right beside the post office. Check her out!
