We salute the farmer – Food Freedom Day

The Canadian Federation of Agriculture has declared today (February 6, 2015), as Food Freedom Day.  The is the day the average Canadian will have earned just enough income to pay for the grocery bill for the entire year.

 

To draw attention to the day Ramara farmer, Scott McDonald dropped off a basket that represents some of the diversity of agricultural items produced on farms in the Simcoe Country area.

 

The Canadian Federation of Agriculture reviewed food prices over the past 30 years at both the farm gate and at retail levels.  This research highlighted the hard work farmers do in ensuring Canadians receive great value for their food dollar.  The statistics continue to show the increasing gap between retail price and what the farmer is paid for his or her food.

Blaze Wins Over Brad Paislely

blaze

 

Here’s a creative way to get noticed by big names in Country music.  Brad Paisley has agreed to make a dream come true for a young musician named Blaze.

 

Blaze is good guitar player and the young man has set his sights on getting to jam with Brad.  So, he wrote and recorded a song titled “Brad Paisley” that is based around the tag line, “I wanna jam with Brad Paisley.”

 

The song details all the things Blaze would be willing to do to make that dream come true — including mowing Brad’s lawn.

 

What do you think of the song?

Dierks Bentley In a New Band

HotCountryNights

 

There’s a new band out there.  Hot Country Knights is creating quite a buzz, and it’s not because of their epic mullets and ’90s inspired fashion.

The band features Douglas “Big Rhythm Doug” Douglason, who’s better known as Dierks Bentley. Dierks calls his ’90s cover band “a little side project.”

Check out their Facebook page.

People Helping Horses Helping People

At 1095 Warminster Side Rd at RR#3 Coldwater there is a farm doing something incredible.

Horseplay Sanctuary owned and operated by Lillian Tepera  and Robert Timlin, is a rescue and shelter farm for mistreated, injured, infirm, abused, neglected and abandoned horses.  In addition to saving horses the facility provides therapeutic equine programs to abused women and children and to individuals with physical or cognitive impairment.

For 7 years the couple offered therapeutic riding programs under the Stonegate Farm name, but now as Horseplay Sanctuary they are proud to be recognized as a Registered Charitable operation by the CRA.  Both Lillian and Robert have full time jobs outside of Horseplay Sanctuary to keep this sanctuary afloat, but donations and volunteers are also vital for the operation.  The time and cost to operate this sanctuary is unbelievable, but with huge hearts Lillian and Robert are committed to help people with horses and save horses who otherwise have no hope.

The full story of Horseplay Sanctuary is at horseplaysanctuary.com, but take a look at what Jack and Carey discovered on a recent visit to the farm.
