Notice: March 5, 2013
At this point in time, Elgin Harvest is no longer accepting orders.
My lease for the commercial kitchen in Straffordville has expired and I have yet to source an affordable replacement.
You may not be aware of this, but it is actually ILLEGAL to prepare and sell food from an un-inspected kitchen. If I were to cook and sell food from my home kitchen, not only would I be at risk for fines, my professional reputation would also be damaged. The local health department and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency enforce these regulations and more information can be found on their websites.
I plan to continue my search for an inspected kitchen that is suitable for my needs to continue the growth of Elgin Harvest, but for now it will exist only online and in print. I love sharing my photos, ideas, experiences, and knowledge with readers and viewers and I don't need a commercial kitchen to do that.
I thank you for your continued support and I will keep you updated on when I am able to begin accepting orders once again.
PS- Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any leads on an affordable kitchen in the area to rent or would like to hire my services as a free-lance article writer. I would love an opportunity to teach cooking or preserving classes as well.
Eating. Drinking. Sharing.
