Going Organic for our first Barbecue of the year

For the past few weeks, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the cold to go away so that I can switch up my winter closet for my spring, hit up as many roof top patios as I can, stroll along the sunny waterfront whilst getting tanned (if getting tanned for me is actually possible), happily window shop along Queen West – the list goes on. There’s been so many exciting items planned for the warmer weather that when it was warmer for 3 consecutive days in a row last week, E and I decided it was time to start up the good old barbecue because let’s be real – it’s not officially spring unless you kick it off with a huge feast 🙂

As many you may know, E & I have really been trying to use a better selection of produces when we cook at home. While this may not always be the case when we dine out to eat, we do try to carefully slot it into our daily meal plans whenever possible. We decided to use organic ingredients for our first barbecue of the season from Whispering Meadows.

4C85587B-BFD3-4A46-98A1-00EB9B290D82Whispering Meadows is a local farm serving Southern Ontario with the highest quality of premium meats. They raise their animals in an environment that is:

  • free-range
  • stress free
  • zero antibiotics or synthetic hormones
  • using organic growing methods
  • with certified organic & non-GMO feeds wherever possible

The best part about Whispering Meadows is that they can conveniently deliver your selection of meats right to your door step and you don’t even need to be at home to meet the delivery!

  • T-Bone Steak
  • Spare Ribs
  • Butt Chops
  • Bacon
  • Beef Cubes (For Stew or Kabobs)
  • Chicken Wings
  • Hamburger
  • Rump Roast
  • Strip Loin Steak
  • Sirloin Tip Steak

We decided to do a comparison of the organic meats from Whispering Meadows to items purchased from a local grocery store. Especially with the chicken wings, we could really taste the difference in freshness & juiciness in the organic wings then the store bought wings.
