With truLOCAL, Cottage Weekends Have Never Been Easier
As summer starts winding down, many Canadians are taking advantage of the final long weekends of summer and heading up to the cottage to relax with friends and family. Summer holidays at the cottage are a time-honoured Canadian tradition, and many people’s happiest summer memories involve mornings canoeing out on the lake, lazy afternoons on the dock, and starlit nights around the fire.
But these blissful vacations don’t happen by accident. A good cottage weekend requires careful planning, and if your cottage is in a more remote part of the province, you need to make sure you have everything you will need to entertain your friends and family. This summer, why not make the planning a little less stressful and use truLOCAL’s fresh meat deliver service?
With truLOCAL, you can order meat online and have it delivered across Ontario — which means that you don’t need to worry about picking up a cooler full of meat before you leave the city. Instead, you can arrange to have your favourite cuts delivered right to your cottage door in a refrigerated box. Because truLOCAL specializes in local, sustainably raised meat, ordering from truLOCAL means getting access to a full range of exciting meats, from buffalo steaks and filet mignon to artisanal sausages and wild-caught fish.
One of our most popular new products this summer, however, has without a doubt been our grass-fed beef. Unlike most commercial beef sold in supermarkets, grass-fed beef is completely raised on pasturage, without the use of added hormones or antibiotics. The result is healthier meat with an earthy, nuanced flavour that tastes great even without seasoning. No wonder that when it comes to premium cuts like steaks, many beef aficionados will only eat grass fed!
If you really want to impress your friends on the next long weekend at the cottage, get high quality grass fed beef burgers, steaks, and ground beef in your next order. Not only will you be supporting more sustainable farming practices, you’ll be serving your guests some of the best tasting beef that money can buy.
truLOCAL isn’t just for fans of red meat, though — in fact, our high quality chicken is one of our most popular products. Shoppers can order chicken wings, breasts, thighs (both boneless/skinless and bone-in/skin-on, chicken strips, ground chicken, and chicken sausage, and even opt for a whole chicken. Our chicken is sourced from Hidden Root Farms, an artisanal poultry farm outside of Brantford, Ontario. Hidden Root chickens are free-range and pasture-raised without antibiotics, which makes them better tasting and better for you than factory raised alternatives.
Putting together the perfect summer cottage weekend takes a lot of planning, and if you want to make sure your guests get the most out of the last cottage weekend of the summer, you’ll want to make sure you have the best food — and plenty of it! Don’t add more stress to the planning process, and don’t serve your guests second-rate meat this summer. Instead, order a delivery box from truLOCAL, and have an array of delicious cuts ready and waiting when you arrive at your cottage door.
