Our Schomberg Vegetable Box comes with our fresh veggies and herbs, plus our ethically grown meats and eggs and other local products as add-ons.

Our lamb is grown with care right on our farm, while the organic ground beef is from our neighbour Bonnie in Schomberg. Both are super tasty!

We’ve also gotten some pretty rave reviews on our chicken and duck eggs. We’ve heard from a few people that they’re the best eggs they’ve ever tasted!

Our Ethically Grown Meats & Eggs

Lamb

The factory farming way of raising animals and producing meat is certainly bad for the animals, the land, and the people. However, when properly managed, would you believe that livestock on a farm is critical for the health of the land and quality of the meat? It’s also a better life for the animals.

On Cavaleiro Farm, the sheep are very important, and we grow them organically. They keep the grass down; increase the diversity of plants growing; and add to the biology of the soil, which means cleaner water, more carbon in the ground, and more topsoil over time. The sheep are building a better farm over time. Their poop is also the main ingredient in our organic compost, which grows you such tasty and healthy vegetables.

Mixed Farm Eggs

Our eggs are something else. This is a mixed pack of chicken eggs and some duck eggs. Different colours and sizes. Can you tell which one is which?

At the supermarket, you just get to pick from brown and white eggs. Our eggs have different colours. At the grocery store, you can pick from free range, omega, cage free, organic, etc. Our chickens go out and do chicken stuff all day, every day. They get a varied diet and lots of space. The eggs at the grocery store need incubators, specific feed, and are overall dependent on a system of large-scale agriculture. Our chickens hatch their own chicks and take care of them. The same way we’ve been living with chickens for thousands of years.

Every dozen eggs you buy from our farm is an investment into a more resilient and fun way to live with chickens. A win-win. Our chickens are the Chantecler, the only Canadian breed of chicken. Check out more at www.cavaleiro.farm/chickens.

Organic Ground Beef

This organic ground beef comes from my neighbour Bonnie. Bonnie has been raising cows in Schomberg for 60 years or more. You might have met Bonnie at the Schomberg Farmers Market, a big part of the local farm community.

This is a great way to get excellent ground beef and also help other local farmers. I’m excited to add this to the store…and eat hamburgers tomorrow. 🙂

Each pack is 1lb and comes individually. They come frozen, and I pick them up just before the boxes are ready for pick-up/delivery.
