The Cow-Op.ca, Cowichan’s first online Farmers’ Market, has been live since August. We have been very busy at the Cow-Op.ca getting more farmers and producers listed on the site! We currently have 15 diverse farms & producers with products available for sale, with more being added each week.
Thanks to the fine folks at Shaw TV, we have a lovely piece about the Cow-op.ca. Have a look here:
The Cowichan region is so diverse in what it has to offer. Not only do we have a generous harvest of fruits and vegetables from the land, we have a wonderful environment for farm animals, contributing meat, dairy, and more. And that’s not to mention all the goodies cooked up in local certified kitchens. There’s a never-ending combination of meals that can be created using only Cowichan-grown or prepared ingredients, including herbs, seasonings, and even dessert. Supporting local farms and businesses is easy and delicious! To sign up for our regular newsletter featuring recipes inspired by our local harvest, click here.
Also new to the Cow-Op.ca are gift certificates! The certificates are created online and emailed directly to the recipient, so they can start shopping immediately. Available in denominations of $25, Cow-Op.ca Gift Certificates are great as prizes, or gifts for birthdays, weddings, or holidays. (Perfect for that person who has one of everything – everybody has to eat!)
This week’s featured product: Jupiter Jam from Warmland Organics. Certified Organic and made with wholesome ingredients, this jam is full of fruit and flavour. A little bit on your toast each morning goes a long way. A delicious start to the day!
