gift_intro_graphicPut some award-winning cheese in your loved one’s stocking this year! Heidi from The Farm House Natural Cheeses is a gruyere-like French table cheese made from milk produced on the summer pasture. It’s just one of Farm House’s amazing grass-fed dairy products – they make a wide selection of cow and goat cheese, along with cultured butter for your holiday baking.

Looking for a unique gift for the jewellery lover on your list? Nancy Esworthy produces a range of sophisticated and edgy designs made from precious metals, wood, resin, and leather.

Let the cocktail making begin! The Booze Witch (a.k.a Kelly Gillespie of Gillespie’s Fine Spirits) makes a range of flavourful and aromatic shrubs to pair with her artisan spirits, which include vodka, gin, and signature liqueurs made with BC grain.

Light up your holiday season with the natural warmth and beauty of von Hardenberg Candles. Available in a wide selection of shapes and sizes, each candle is handmade at their studio in Maple Ridge from 100% beeswax.

Copper Pot Preserves creates artisan small batch jams and preserves from the seasonal bounty found at local farmers markets. With flavours ranging from Raspberry & Chipotle to Blueberry, Lemon & Thyme, Copper Pot’s jams make great stocking stuffers for the jam and toast fans in your life, or a yummy addition to your holiday charcuterie board.

Your holiday baking can go local this year with organic grains and flours from Cedar Isle Farm. Grown in the rich and fertile soil of the Fraser Valley near Agassiz, BC, Cedar Isle’s products include certified organic oats, wheat, and rye that is rolled and milled into whole grain flour.
