Pasture-raised chicken

Our tender, delicious pasture-raised chicken won’t be available for much longer, so enjoy it while you can! Many of our customers like to stock up on this product while it’s in store—not a bad idea, if you ask us (we might be doing the same in our own homes). After all, when you taste poultry this good, you’ll want more of it. Available in several different cuts as well as whole chickens, you can find our pastured chicken here.

Marinated beef short ribs

Don’t miss out on this customer favourite! Available in Korean BBQ and Southwest varieties, these tender, flavourful short ribs are perfect for grilling on a warm summer evening. Serve them with a tangy coleslaw and your favourite potatoes for an incredibly satisfying meal. They’re also ideal as an appetizer or handheld, if you prefer to enjoy them that way. Your guests will be asking for the recipe (or the link to buy them from VGFarmToCity.ca, in this case).

Smoked pork chops

Easy, flavourful and delicious, our smoked pork chops are always a winner. They’re so simple to prepare on the grill, you’ll feel like you’re cheating—but don’t worry, we’ll let you take all the credit when the compliments start rolling in. We love these pork chops with a great potato salad and some grilled vegetables! And if you’ve got corn on the cob? Even better. You can find this product here.

Marinated jerk chicken drumsticks

Like it spicy? We’ve got the perfect product for you—and it’s incredibly easy to prepare. These marinated jerk chicken drumsticks are ready to throw on the grill for a fast and easy dinner that’s tender, delicious and full of spicy jerk flavour. Don’t forget a cold drink—while these aren’t over-the-top spicy, you may want something refreshing to sip on! You can find this product here.

Portabella mushroom steak burger

These amazing steak burgers are made with 28% Ontario mushroom stems. Not only is this burger delicious, it actually helps reduce food waste by using all parts of the mushroom to create a savoury, hearty burger that everyone will love. It’s got all of the beef flavour you need from a burger with the added richness of mushroom – an incredible combination that is great for the palate as well as the planet. A must-try!
