We stopped in at Colasanti’s and a stop at the Butcher of Kingsville on the way home is always a must. It was time to stock up on some of our favourites (sausages, tomato sauce) and try a few new things (chicken burgers, hot dogs). It’s always a great experience and the variety is amazing.
The Butcher of Kingsville works with area farmers to bring you all of this great food. They are very knowledgeable about the products and can provide recommendations on how to prepare the dishes too.
Honey garlic sausages made with local honey and garlic are on the list of what to try next time. Celebrate our region, it’s a fantastic one!

The Chatham-Kent Farm Safety Association is looking for an Assistant Coordinator for our annual Chatham-Kent Farm Safety Day. Each year, we host a Farm Safety Day for children aged 5 to 12 in Ridgetown mid July. Funding and resources for this program are provided from the Progressive Agriculture Foundation www.progressiveag.org/. The Progressive Agriculture Foundation program trains and provides the resources that local communities need to conduct one-day safety programs that are age-appropriate, hands-on, fun, and safe for children.
Assistant coordinators must attend a two day training session: this year’s workshop is Oct 26 and 27th in Guelph (expenses paid). The mission of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Days® is simple – to make farm life safer and healthier for all children through education and training. If you are interested in volunteering to this worthwhile educational event, please contact Susan Kelner, Farm Safety Day Coordinator, 519-674-3369, or email email@example.com.
