Winter Foraging

We have snow.  The forecast predicts squalls over the weekend.  Winter is coming, and the farmer’s markets are over.  Instead of finding the vendors in one spot, we’ll have to go out to them.

I was looking at the Foodlink Grey Bruce website hoping to find addresses for the people whom we usually meet at the market.  I was quite successful.  The folks from whom we get our honey were there.  So were the people from whom we get our bacon.

I also found some of my congregation listed: the Te Velde’s at Twin Creeks Organic Farm and Mark Vanderpol’s chicken.

It looks as if we might not starve this winter.  But, I’m not planning on stocking up today.  I’ll content myself with a trip to the woodpile.

About Tweed and Briar

I am the pastor of a rather conservative rural congregation. My interests alongside of work are hunting, fly fishing, cooking, and life in an agricultural community. By way of family, I have a wife and two children: a daughter and a son. I am of indeterminate age because my wife is a bit younger than I am and my son is ages with some of my friends’ grandchildren. However, to say that I slip smoothly among the generations would imply an agility which I no longer possess. I aspire to the genteel poverty of the country manse.
