"Local water buffalo... that's a joke, right?"
Nope! We source our water buffalo from H.O.P.E. Eco Farms - located about 40 minutes away in Aylmer.
H.O.P.E. (which stands for Healthy Organic Produce Enterprises) is a collective of upwards of 30 small-scale organic farms in the Aylmer Amish community. They work together to grow and market their produce under one collective brand - by doing so they are able to have diversity in their product and support each other with their re...sources.
Next time you visit be sure to check out our Local Sourcing Map (featured a couple posts back!) to see what else we are bringing in from H.O.P.E.
The H.O.P.E. community is one of the many farmers we source from within the London area!
Well, spring seems to still be on the horizon.
While we sit here thinking about how climate change isn't real*, why not cozy up with a warm drink to sooth your soul?
The Orange You Glad Mocha was a winter favourite - warm and rich espresso from @planetbeancoffeeco paired with our house-made chocolate sauce (using fair-trade chocolate), your milk of choice, and finished off with bright notes of orange essence. It's the perfect drink to warm you up from your tongue to your... toes! Get it while it lasts (and while we wait for that springtime sun)
*JUST KIDDING. Let's take this opportunity to really evaluate what we can do in our daily lives to reduce our environmental impact. Our precious Earth could really use our help*
