Try our gourmet asparagus relish; it is so very much more than a hotdog relish. It is great on a tuna, chicken or turkey sandwich, with cream cheese on a cracker, in a dollop of mayo for a dip, and pretty amazing on a spoon straight out of the jar.

Our gourmet asparagus relish was selected #4 out of 29 great eats and drinks in the summer in the city by Julie Van Rosendall who is on CBC radio and does a great food blog.

Pies:

Taste the difference – our pies are hand made and the pastry is hand rolled just like how our grandmothers used to make them. Our crust is thin so you can taste the fruit, not just that heavy pastry taste and amazingly flaky, too. The ingredients are all natural, we never use any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Our Take & Bake pies are so convenient and great to keep on hand for when company drops in. Simply keep in the freezer until you are needing a quick, simple easy dessert, then pop into the oven, preheated to 400°F. bake 1 hour or until nicely browned.  Be sure and tell your guests that you Baked a Pie. They will be so impressed.

Available at Calgary Farmers Market and at our farm in our Country Store in season or by appointment off season.

Nixon’s Honey

The Nixon family produce all natural unpasteurized honey locally at Innisfail. We carry a range of sizes in our store. This honey is so local that we even have several hives on our farm.
