A few special dates to keep in mind in this May…

“Micro-Farm” weekend – Friday May 4th – Sunday May 6th

Our “micro-farm” partner for May is Giesbrecht Farms located in the Fraser Valley.  Since 1993 Brian Giesbrecht has been raising free-range heritage pigs such as Berkshire and Tamworth on this small farm.  These pigs get amazing food primarily consisting of assorted nuts, alfalfa hay and overflow produce from local grocery stores!  Look for lots of products made with Giesbrecht pork this week at Oyama.
