  • Best weekend with #openfarmdays.
.
Every year for the last 4, I have been busy organizing an Open Farm Days' event that prevents me from visiting other farms, but this year I had the wonderful experience of getting to tour 4 different farms.
.
Pictured here are 3 of the 4 (forgot my camera on the other tour): @happiness_by_the_acre, @hgb.bison and @shirleysgreenhouse. All three farms are uniquely different but are passionate about producing the best food possible.
.
Whether they are small scale with a holistic practice or large scale conventional, the farmers of Alberta work hard to balance the volatility of the elements and market with best practices. Though I'm without a doubt biased towards small-scale ag, it was a great learning and reminder about the challenges large ag faces because they aren't that different from the small producers. It was also a reminder that these farmers are equally passionate about their practice even if that practice differs from my understanding.
.
Thanks to all the farms for their generosity. Allowing people to visit your farm is no easy task. Farms are highly personal and it is a risk to allow just anyone to tour your greenhouse or pasture. But without these tours, so many of us wouldn't have the opportunity to see what agriculture means in the 21st Century. If you've never experienced Open Farm Days, next year, it needs to be at the top of your August list.

  • CALGARY // Our pals at @southlandyardyyc are about more than just eating upscale versions of comfort food!  You will find an indoor bocce court, shuffleboard, foosball, a pool table and so many other games.  And as one one of our newest Mealshare partners, you will also find a way to give back to your community.  Every time you order the Caesar salad, or the Lettuce wraps (featured) you are providing a meal to a youth in need.  So even if your buddy beats you in shuffleboard, you can still feel good about helping make your community a better place!! 😉 #MealshareYYC #Buy1Give1 📸2 @cbskitchen CALGARY // Our pals at @southlandyardyyc are about more than just eating upscale versions of comfort food!

  • HOLY CANNOLI, these ones from @linasmarket were STR8 FIRE 🔥 if you haven’t visited this market for their deli, bakery, or groceries you’re really missing out dude. went there for the first time the other day and i was so excited looking at all of the things they have. my next cheese spread will be from there for sure 😂 asked for 2 cannolis for myself that day and the lady asked if i wanted a takeout box hahah 🙂 “no thx, for here is fine”. truth be told i was on the hunt for bombolinis (donut-like pastries) but they ran out so i got these instead.. no regrets! if you’re ever here make sure to grab one of these!!
...
FEATURING
*🍴pistachio cannoli: flaky and light pastry dough with the lightest ricotta cheese filling that had such good lemon flavor! not dense/too sweet. also such a nice crunch and flavor with those pistachios!
*🍴traditional cannoli: i actually liked this one even better since i love chocolate. it had all of the elements of the above BUT with chocolate WITHIN the filling 😭🙌🏻 craving these bad boys forever HOLY CANNOLI, these ones from @linasmarket were STR8 FIRE 🔥 if you haven’t visited this market for their deli, bakery, or groceries you’re really missing out dude. went there for the first time the other day and i was so excited looking at all of the things they have. my next cheese spread will be from there for sure 😂 asked for 2 cannolis for myself that day and the lady asked if i wanted a takeout box hahah 🙂 “no thx, for here is fine”. truth be told i was on the hunt for bombolinis (donut-like pastries) but they ran out so i got these instead.. no regrets! if you’re ever here make sure to grab one of these!! ...
