Our cups are full this morning with Poppa Beans (@rylymydog) Cuban Peaberry coffee. These beans are sourced from Papua New Guinea where they are naturally produced given that synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are too expensive and unobtainable. This results in coffee with naturally lower levels of caffeine and acidity. Freshly roasted at Poppa Beans Coffee Roastery, this medium roast is bursting with flavor and aroma. Enjoy your cuppa! #coldcomfortsbox #supportlocal613 #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #coffee #cupofjoe #saturdaymorning #localcoffee #poppabeans #papuanewguinea #roastery #madewithlove

March's Spring Is Coming Cold Comforts Box will be featuring something special made by these guys at @milkhousedairy. Milkhouse Dairy, located in Smith's Falls, Ontario is owned by husband and wife team, Caitlyn and Kyle White. The couple returned to the country after university where they started their plans for a small-scale sheep dairy from scratch. They are proud to have full traceability from animal to market of their milk and their cheese. They now produce raw sheep's milk cheese, grass-fed lamb, and all-natural wool products. If you want to talk about commitment, Caitlyn and Kyle are in the midst of lambing season at the moment, a time when they spend many nights sleeping in a hammock in the barn to keep watch over their flock! They are our modern day sheppards. #coldcomfortsbox #milkhousedairy #sheep #pasture #cheese #madewithlove

Wow look at this delicious meal @sara_dubeau_ made using products from the Febraury and upcomg March Cold Comforts Box. "I became obsessed with the kohlrabi and napa cabbage ferment from [email protected] I received an jar in advance so that I could taste test it for my monthly write up for the CSA. I couldn't get enough. This ferment is seriously stellar! 👏 To top it off, it's a local farm collaboration with kohlrabi and napa cabbage from @bluegrass_farm garlic and chilies from @arc_acres and peppergrass from  #fermeetforet  Honestly, this was my salad on repeat for an entire week! Broccoli sprouts from @kaykazda. Microgreens from @monchap. Carrots from @arc_acres. Fermented veggies from @coldcomfortsbox. I added half an avocado, a drizzle of cold pressed olive oil and some pumpkin seeds. Voila! Healthy. Tasty. Simple. Mostly local. Delish. All thanks to hardworking, heart-centred local farmers and producers. Thank you to all of you for all you do!😘" #coldcomfortsbox #holistichealth #fermentedfood #microgreens #veggies #madewithlove

We hope everyone is enjoying their squash soup! Here's a flashback to our local holistic nutritionist @sara_dubeau_ saving seeds from the butternut squash featured in February's Winter Embrace box. The seeds will be dried out and then planted in @monchaps garden this spring! #coldcomfortsbox #seedsaving #squash #localfood #supportlocal613 #slowfood #ottawafarmers #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #madewithlove

Introducing the faces behind Diversitea: Susan Potter and Louise Allard. These two take great care to ensure that you have the freshest, and highest quality tea in your cup. In February's Winter Embrace box they introduce you to Tulsi tea, also known as Holy Basil. Tulsi is generally recognized for its antioxidants, which are powerful nutrients that protect your health by fighting against free radicals in your body, preventing damage from oxidation. Tulsi’s unique chemistry is highly complex and offers benefits that go beyond that of many other teas. Working together, this complex of compounds possess potential antioxidant, adaptogenic, and immune-enhancing properties that can fight stress and help promote your general health. #coldcomfortsbox #tulsi #tea #holybasil #diversitea #ottawafarmersmarket #supportlocal613 #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #madewithlove

This bay leaf plant is soaking up today's beautiful winter rays. The leaves will soon be enjoyed in Febraury's box as part of a soup mix alongside locally grown butternut squash, black futzu garlic, onions and microgreens. Yum! #coldcomfortsbox #bayleaf #soupseason #locallygrown #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #support613 #ottawafarmers #madewithlove

Although this warm weather is making it feel like spring, it's still a ways away - not for our members though! Thanks to On The Bend Sugar Shack, located just south of Ottawa in Chesterville, February's box will include this sweet reminder of spring. #coldcomfortsbox #maplebutter #maple #onthebend #sugarshack #localfood #ottawafoodies #ottawafood #supportlocal #thankyoumothernature #madewithlove

@monchap is experimenting with growing microgreens for February's box. "The best part about these peas - they're growing in composted kitchen scraps & the shoots and seeds make wonderful soups 'n salads 🌱". With this easy setup, even in the winter we can enjoy fresh greens in Ottawa. #coldcomfortsbox #eatyourgreens #veggies #microgreens #compost #nourishing #eatlocal #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #madewithlove

Cracking black walnuts with friends for January's Cold Remedy Box. These nuts were harvested by a team of Hidden Harvest volunteers on Lemieux Island in Ottawa. The process of harvesting, drying, and cracking black walnuts is long and requires lots of paience. However, we think this tasty, nutrient-dense snack is worth the effort and are excited for our CSA members to give them a try in a few days! #coldcomfortsbox #eatlocal #support613 #hiddenharvestottawa #foraged #blackwalnuts #localfood #ottawafoodies #ottawafood #madewithlove

We're sure these raw, organic, fair trade vegan sweet treats with ingredients sourced from the Ontario Natural Food Co-op and cranberries from Upper Canada Cranberries (located in Greely!) were the first items to be devoured in December's Holiday Bliss Box. These not-so-guilty pleasures were created by the talented @monchap (photo creds too). #coldcomfortsbox #supportottawa #suppportlocal #supportlocal613 #uppercanadacranberries #ottawafarmers #ottawafoodies #ottawafood #madewithlove

It was so great to catch up with all our favorite producers at the Lansdowne Christmas Market this past weekend while getting organized for the January Cold Remedy box - and a head start on Christmas shopping! There's one weekend left if you haven't gotten out yet (amazing shot by @arc_acres) #coldcomfortsbox #shoplocal #eatlocal #support613 #supportottawa #christmasmarket #lansdownemarket #madewithlove at Aberdeen Pavilion

We had a surprise addition to December's Holiday Bliss Box - thanks to the bounty of spinach and kale at @arc_acres. These organic greens are grown in the hoop house over winter so that we can enjoy fresh salads even when the ground is covered in snow! #coldcomfortsbox #wintergreens #eatyourveggies #supportottawa #suppport613 #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #madewithlove
