Organic Butchers -- Ottawa/Kingston/Windsor/Northland
Anyone know any good organic butchers in Ottawa, Kingston, Windsor, or the North?
There is an organic beef farmer in Kenilworth (near Listowel and Hanover), Mr. Bayer, certified since '96. His meat is processed by Frey's, a Mennonite butcher. It is available frozen, every 4 months, from http://www.beefconnections.ca
A 30 lb. assortment is $225. The site will explain how they deliver to pickup points in southern Ontario.
I took my first delivery from beef connections last week; it was from Huber's farm, and I got to talk to him, (in the cold, at Bloor and
Euclid, for several minutes.) The meat was superb, and the cuts much as specified. (The summer sausage, $4/lb, is really good.) Some steaks are cut on the thin side, but you can get custom cutting. For my next order, I think I'll try some of Huber's Berkshire bred pork, and the Black Angus beef from Walkerton.

An Ottawa organic butcher that we go to quite often is Saslove's on Richmond Rd. They also have a location in the Byward Market. Saslove's carries a decent range of organic and hormone/antibiotic free meats. You can also try the Canadian Organic growers - Ottawa website for a wider range of products too: www.cog.ca/ottawa/
