Frequently Asked Questions
We will provide you with the best information that is available it us from our farmers.
Our 100% Grass-Fed & Finished beef are raised for us by our partnaring farmers within 100 miles from our store.
Our pasture-raised organicly fed chicken are raised for us in season by few Amish and Mennonite family farms within a 100 miles from our store.
Our lambs are raised on grass by a biodynamic and organic farmer in Huron County since 2003.
Our organic dairy comes from local Ontario farmers within 80 miles from our store.
Our eggs are pasture-raised and come from our Mennonite community in Huron County. Their diet is a companation of forage, earth worms, organic grains and clean grass.
Why isn't your 100% grass-fed beef certified organic?
To have the term “certified organic” is a lengthy process that requires farmers to comply not only with the Canadian Organic Standards certification body (CBs), but with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) as well. We make sure we partner with farmers who go above and beyond these standards. They only practice biodynamic, natural farming practices which include raising our animals on pasture as much as possible, and ensuring they are raised on land that is GMO and pesticide free.
What does 'Halal' mean?
Halal is an Arabic word meaning, “permissible to do”. Similar to the term “Kosher”, it’s essentially a guideline to the ethically raising and harvesting animals.
This means animals must be transported and slaughtered with as little stress and pain as possible. Similar to kosher standards, the animal must not be ill or injured when slaughtered. They must be harvested humanely.
Can we visit the farms?
Our farmers are people just like you and your family. Farming is a very long and time consuming lifestyle. Many of our farmers are in the Amish and Mennonite communities, which avoid the use of cars, electronics, and social media. We'd like to respect our farmers' privacy and valuable time while continuing to maintain our transparent relationship with them.
What are your criteria/standards for your farmers?
Our farmers must:
-Have the utmost care and respect for the animals they raise for us (keeping them outdoors whenever possible, keeping them healthy and well fed, raising them in the most ethical and humane way possible)
-Use either organic or biodynamic agricultural practices (such as natural controls of weeds and insects as opposed to pesticides and herbicides).
-Be conscious of the environment (reduce carbon foot print and refrain from use of plastic and synthetic materials)
-Take pride in the attention and quality of their product
Is local produce or pastured raised poultry available year round?
While we wish we could offer pastured poultry and local produce throughout the year, the Canadian winter weather is a challenge. As a result, our pasture raised poultry as well as our local produce can only be offered Spring throughout Fall. We try to keep an amount of seasonal poultry (freshly vacuum sealed) stored in our frozen section. It’s available until quantities last.
Organic, GMO-free, grass-fed, pastured - what do all these words mean? The health food industry is famous for having terminology that changes meaning frequently.
Here at BlossomPure, we strive to ensure that everyone understands what our products are defined as.
What it means for BlossomPure: When we say “100% grass-fed” we mean it is 100% Grass-Fed & Finished. Our beef are out on pasture throughout the year with exception to sever cold winter weather. They are grass-fed from start to finish with no grain or supplements. In the winter, the animals are fed hay or haylage. Haylage is higher in protein value. It's hay that is baled and fermented due to the moisture in the bale. Animals love it because it also has a higher probiotic content that makes it easier for them to digest the food and absorb the nutrient.
"Pastured" or "Pasture Raised" (not to be confused with the word 'pasteurized')
It's a traditional and sustainable agriculture method in which poultry are raised outdoors on pasture with shelter provided in the spring/summer months.
What it means for BlossomPure: We believe animals should have a healthy and natural life. The majority of our poultry are raised on pasture. Our pasture raised chicken and turkey spend the majority of their life outside grazing on their natural intended diet including organic grain, earth worms, and clean grass. Many people ask why our eggs have a superior taste to any other? our pasture-raised hens’ diet and happy lifestyle is the answer!
"GMO (genetically modified organism)"
A GMO (genetically modified organism) is an organism such as an animal or plant whose genetic makeup has been modified using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes that do not occur in nature. GMO’s increase yields at the expense of quality.
What it means for BlossomPure: We believe everyone, from farmers to consumers, deserve to make an informed choice. We do not support any type of study that supports unnatural genetic mutation. Because of this belief, we only partner with farmers who raise their animals and plant crops 100% GMO-free. We also ensure all products in the store are either certified organic, or verified under the Standard Non-GMO Project. According to the Centre for Food Safety use of GMO’s in our food sources increase the risks of toxicity in the body, allergic reactions, antibiotic resistance, immune-suppression, cancer and loss of nutrition. We only partner with farmers who do not feed their animals GMO feed, or graze their animals on pastures that have GMO’s.
Animals have access to a barn, but also have full access to the outdoors where they enjoy the sunlight and fresh air. They will have better acess to their natural diet.
Animals are allowed to roam free within an enclosed, sheltered area such as a barn. Meat poultry are usually free in the barn, however, layer hens often are caged throughout their lives.
It's a self-regenerating and a self-healing farming practice. It's a way of producing food utilizing multi-stacked farm enterprises, balancing crop and livestock production while enriching the local, natural habitat. The food harvested from these farms is truly nourishment for people seeking to support a socially just and conscientious way of farming.
