From the press releaseThe MatterAs island meat producers strive to provide quality product throughout Vancouver Island, farmers like John & Lorraine Buchanan at Parry Bay Sheep Farm face ever-changing rules and insurance restrictions, all of which gradually eat away at their razor-thin margins. Despite running a successful sheep farm for over 30 years, the challenges presented to farmers like the Buchanans are ever-mounting: delivery & transport cost increase due to insurance increased insurance costs for visits from local children mounting challenges and costs at the meat packing facility they maintain The MeatThis 5 course meal will feature meat from island-bred and grown animals and farmers; hormone-free, grain-fed, free-range chicken, beef, pork and lamb prepared and cooked by some of Vancouver Island’s best culinary minds.With the hopes of raising awareness and supporting our island meat producers, there’s not better way to acknowledge quality island-raised meat than to cook and eat it in a beautiful setting.This event is NOT about just contributing money – we all need to help raise awareness of the bureaucratic challenges that our local producers are facing.
