Terra Madre 2012!

We are incredibly excited to have been nominated, and won, the award of Terra Madre 2012 delegate for Northern Alberta! Terra Madre is an annual event by Slow Food, an organization of more than 100,000 members in 150 countries worldwide. It is a time for people from across the globe to convene and share thoughts and knowledge about local, sustainable food production. It is a prestigious honour for us to have been selected and we are extremely proud. This year's Terra Madre is being held in Turin, Italy so Cindy and I are brushing up on our Italian and learning all that we can about the event. We will be part of the Canadian Delegation and will participate in manning the trade show booth as well as attending meetings and conferences. Of course, we will be in Italy...so there will be some touring and eating as well. A sneak peek at 2012 Terra Madre.

We are proud to have Grapevine Deli as a new depot for our products in St. Albert! This is a tremendous food store that we have been supporting for years now. Jay and her family are doing a wonderful job with this store and we should all do our best to support them! If you are looking for Gold Forest Grain products and you are in St. Alberta be sure to stop in to Grapevine. We'll have our products on their shelves by this Thursday...April 24.

Dr. Davis "Wheat Belly" on youtube



I really like the message that Dr. Davis is bringing the world. It is a message that we have been on about for some time now. Modern varieties of livestock, plants and grains are simply not all that they have been made out to be. Dependant upon anti-biotics and chemical inputs, they work just fine. However, heritage varieties are healthier, cleaner and more durable in every possible manner.

We will have more information posted soon regarding the dietary benefits of diets that contain heritage and ancient grains and flours that are 100% whole grain or "entire grain" products. Stay tuned.
