2014 Milk Calendar features recipes by Ontario dairy farmers

At Farm & Food Care Ontario, staff eagerly awaits the annual November release of the Milk Calendar, published by Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC). In fact, we’re almost as excited about arrival of the annual Milk Calendar as we are about our own Faces of Farming calendar (which if you haven’t already seen ordered, you can do so at this link.

Hats off, this year, to DFC for profiling Canadian farmers, and their favourite recipes, in the calendar including Ontario dairy farmers Reuben and Ed Bos who appear on the calendar’s cover. You can read a great story about the Bos family that appeared recently in the The Record.

Several other Ontario farmers and their favourite recipes are also featured in the calendar including Catherine Agar of Salford with her French Roast recipe appearing in May; Andrew Campbell of Appin with his mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies appearing in July; Nichele Steenbeck of Varna with her favourite Strawberries and Potted Cream; Sandra Willard of Thornloe with her Breakfast Smoothie recipe appearing in August; Jody Spriel of St. Marys with her Cauliflower Cheddar Soup recipe appearing in October and Jennifer Eastman of Kinburn with her Ham and Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese recipe appearing in November.

Farmers from Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec also contributed recipes to the project.

Ontario recipe developer and Professional Home Economist, Jennifer MacKenzie is again responsible for the array of great recipes that appear in this year’s project.

    I was very disappointed when, in January, I went online to the Milk Calendar site only to find out that there weren’t anymore Ontario Calendars available. I do not have a subscription to the Ottawa Citizen, so realized too late that that was the reason, I didn’t get a calendar. I haven’t had a subscription for a number of years, but buy it every day. It should have been an insert in the paper that I bought whenever it came out, but unfortunately, it wasn’t there. I didn’t get an opportunity to go online until January only to find out one more time that there were anymore copies. I would truly like to receive one as I love the recipes and make them whenever I can. If it at possible, I would truly like to receive a copy - I hope you can assist me in my efforts to obtain my copy. Thank you for whatever help you are able to provide.
