3 tips to make your long weekend even better

Summer is flying by, but there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy it. With the Civic Holiday just ahead of us on the calendar, we thought we’d share three quick and easy tips to help you get more out of those much-anticipated long weekends. From saving money to saving time and trying new things, here are some suggestions to help you make the most of these beautiful summer days. It all starts at VG Meats—shop in store or visit VGFarmToCity.ca to place your order! We’re pleased to offer FREE home delivery on qualifying orders.

1. Get a great deal on delicious local food

We all love delicious local food, and we all love a great deal—so why not enjoy both? Make sure you check out our in-store specials before planning your long weekend meals. This will help you save money while enjoying mouth-watering, high quality Ontario beef, poultry, lamb, pork products and more. You can also shop from our bulk buys page, try a freezer bundle or join our email list to get exclusive offers. If you’d like any guidance, just ask—our team is here to help!

2. Let us pack your cooler

Have you heard about this complimentary service from VG Meats in Simcoe and Stoney Creek? When you place an order in person, online or by phone, you’re welcome to drop off your cooler. We’ll clean it, chill it in our industrial refrigerator and expertly pack it with your favourite items. It’ll be ready to go whenever you need it! Pick it up on your way to the cottage, the campground or a friend’s house for that long weekend BBQ—we’re happy to make things as convenient as possible for our customers. Please read this blog post for more details or contact us directly with your questions.

3. Try something new

The long weekend is a great opportunity to try something new. In addition to your favourite burgers, hot dogs, steaks, chicken breasts and sausages, add some Korean BBQ or Southwest marinated beef short ribs, a few smoked pork chops, some tender lamb kebabs or lamb patties, turkey burgers and our new brisket burgers—an amazing product that may become a summer staple in your house. If you’d like personalized recommendations, please ask a team member at our Stoney Creek or Simcoe retail location. They’ll have plenty of great ideas!
