June at a glance: Father’s Day, chef quality knife sets and more

With Father’s Day coming up in less than two weeks, we’ve got steak on our minds. But we’re also thinking about the World Butchers Challenge, which will be taking place in Paris, France in March 2025. While the competition is almost a year from now, planning is already well underway. We’re proud to share that Dave Vander Velde will be competing once again as part of Team Canada. You may know Dave from our Stoney Creek retail location—he’s an important part of the team, and we’re very proud of him!

So, what does Father’s Day have to do with Dave’s awesome butchery skills? We’re about to tell you. If you’d like more information about this competition, our products or how you can support this awesome event, please contact us. Our team is always glad to hear from customers and would be glad to answer your questions.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: a great dad is always worth celebrating, and we know some of the very best!

Each of the brothers is a father himself now, too—in fact, they have 11 kids between them!

While every dad has a favourite meal that speaks to his unique tastes and preferences, these are a few products we recommend for any Father’s Day celebration:

Trust us—you can’t go wrong with any of these delicious, high quality local products. Now, back to Dave’s butcher challenge and a really awesome Father’s Day gift idea!
