What is new at Peaceful Valley farm you ask??? A lot..

A lot has been happening at Peaceful Valley Farm. Gram has been very busy. We have a new edition to our farm and his name is Spooker. He was a rescue from a home that had 350 cats in it. We initially were going to put him in the barn but we found he was a very nervous and shy cat. So Gram brought him to the house. We initially thought we would put him in our bedroom as he was nervous and we thought this would be a better transition for him. Funny thing is he will now not leave the master bedroom. Therefore his name Spooker…we think he may be afraid of his own…we have never had a cat quite like Spooker. He loves to cuddle and loves all the attention he is now receiving. He will sleep beside Gram in the bed with the covers over him so you can only see his head. Have you ever seen a cat play fetch …Spooker does…The bad part is he is now our alarms clock early in the morning when he decides it is playtime. That part is not so fun. We had to take Spooker to the vet because he was wheezing quite a bit. Spooker has asthma so he is on a medication to get this under control. He could have developed this in the house he was in previously. The dogs are adjusting to him….Rolls well he likes to chase him…so we have a showdown every once in awhile. The bedroom, between the dogs and now the cat and poor Gramp who has a little room still on the bed…lol…

This month we have a few new products at Peaceful Valley farm. We have made mango salsa, plum jelly (from the original farmstead plums on our farm) , and hot peppers …the reviews on both our mango salsa and plum jam have been amazing, add some plum jam, some goat cheese and a few crackers and see if you can walk away…mango salsa with chicken or scoops, delicious…

We also have a pie of the month club..this is how it works. You pay a 5.00 deposit on the glass plate for the pie.  This is a one time fee as long as you return the plate.  For Thanksgiving we are selling two different pies , pumpkin and apple pie. The pies are 12.00 each. In November there will be two different offering etc. you return your pie plate and request another pie out of the offerings for November. Deadline for orders for Thanksgiving is October 8th…The test  kitchen has been working overtime in perfecting our pie making skills. 

Our beef is available now, been going fast but if you would like to order your black angus steaks, ground beef, pure bread grass fed young angus…let Gram know. We have some beef left that we can sell not by the quarter or the half but by what you request and price per pound. Reserve your orders now…

We have a shop button added to our website at or contact me by what’s app, text or by calling (416)271-8440. 

Have a great day from our  much loved “zoo” at Peaceful Valley farms…lol

Merry Christmas from Peaceful Valley Farms

usWe have been busy this year making some new products. We have done customized baskets, creamed honey, honey , honey roasted almonds, peanut brittle and an assortment of baking and gluten free baking. We also have 60 hens laying fresh eggs for us everyday. We will be making maple syrup in the Spring. This year we added the cows and sheep. We lost our dear Porsche. This was a very sad time for us.

There is huge marshmallows in the fields waiting to be fed to the animals.

The biggest news that happened on the farm was Tom and I got married. It was a wonderfully magical day that I married the love of my life. Tom built a wedding chapel for us to get married under. It is now officially called the Peaceful Valley wedding chapel.

When we left for our honeymoon, we taped a TV show that will air early next year. Never realized what went in to a 30 minute TV show. We are sworn to secrecy until the time comes when it airs.

We spent a few months traveling. We love new adventures.

We want to wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

A lot happening at Peaceful Valley farm

Gramp and I are getting married on August 11th, 2018. There is so much we have to do to get ready as we are getting married here at the farm. We are building the little chapel we are getting married under….we are very excited…the countdown is on 56 days to go…trying to think of a hashtag for our wedding to list pictures …any ideas??? We have a countdown on mugs we write in each day for the countdown..I changed Gramps to 363 days today to see if he was awake…lol

Missy our barn cat had a litter of kittens….Gramp reached in to get some eggs from the nesting boxes and there was five little kittens. We left them with Mama so she could feed them for 6 weeks. Than I had to take 3 to get them forever homes. We still have two “Billie” and “Sapphire” They are both thriving and eating well. I am an animal lover at heart ❤️ so I am having trouble letting them go. We already have three dogs and a cat, two horses and lots and lots of laying hens. Missy was spade this past week. We did not want to add to the cat population anymore. She is recovering and will be out roaming the barn again soon enough.

Gram is starting to do some haying, a lot of work and the weather has to cooperate to be able to cut and bale without rain…yesterday I did the parts run for the rake, had no idea what a spring, bolts etc were but sure learnt in short enough time. I told him I am his business manager for the

The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing this morning…everyone is happy at Peaceful Valley farm today…

getting hitched

Happy Easter Monday …..time for some travel talk….

We have been doing some traveling for awhile now. When it is cold at home we hit the warmer climates. We have travelled quite a bit and some of the challenges of traveling and getting to your destination can be daunting at times. I always pack too much and we end of bringing what I never wear. We usually go away for extended periods of time, from a month to three months. Some of the things I learnt this trip, was to pack light tops, with a variety of solids pants, capris or shorts and a few pair of slip on sandals with a pair or two of dressy shoes. If you are wondering if you should bring it, don’t as you can always shop when you get there…lol…we could always use some retail therapy…It is difficult when cruising as you have to bring formal wear and smart casual to wear to the dining room, however you should bring half as much as you think you will need. We always carry with us a luggage weigh scale as airlines are strict in the weight of your bags. We have acquired duffle bags that we are able to collapse put in the suitcase for those purchases you are going to make on your trip. Another tip is to bring what you think you will need in case you get sick as it is difficult in countries that the language is an issue to be able to buy what you need based on your knowledge of what you can buy in Canada.  We have learnt a lot about medical insurance and what countries will accept coverage and through our experience many require you to pay up front and get your money back from your insured when you get back. Very important you read your coverage and know exactly what you are covered for and are not covered for.

I make a list list of what I will need when away and before I leave I check the list to make sure that everything on it is packed. If you need currency of the country you are going to visit…check with your bank to see if they can order it in for you…my experience is to give this at least a week to come in. Most countries accept US dollars, however there are those market stalls that only accept their money. Also check to see what the better exchange is for you to purchase in. Also note that at times when you leave that country that currency may not be exchangeable back to your local currency when you arrive home. Always look online or through a currency exchange centre what the exchange rate is for that country you are in at the present time. This will give you a basis to know if you are getting a fair exchange rate when you are purchasing in the local currency.

Hope you are having a wonderful Easter Monday!

The Joys of Farm Life

“Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with honey and a miracle or two?
The Candy Gram.
Oh, the Candy Gram can
‘Cause she mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good.

Who can take a rainbow
Wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a groovy berry pie?
The Candy Gram
Oh, the Candy Gram can
‘Cause she mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good.

The Candy Gram makes everything she bakes
Satisfying and delicious.
Now you talk about your childhood wishes:
You can almost eat the dishes!

Oh, who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream?
The Candy Gram.
Oh, the Candy Gram can
‘Cause she mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good.”

Wow, thanks Sammy, that’s a glowing tribute. But you didn’t mention the maple syrup—I can work wonders with that too. Good stuff just seems to grow wild around here and I do admit to baking-up a trail for the grand kids to sniff-out all the way from the city to grandmother’s house just about every chance I get. They love running around and enjoying the 25 acres of heaven we are so blessed to own. They feed the horses and birds, pick up the eggs from the chickens, eat a peck or two of berries and play in the pool and playground Grandpa Tom made special for them to enjoy.

It’s true that we—or me, at any rate—were kind of farm newbies when we bought Peaceful Valley farm back in 2010. We’ve had our experiences with horses and cows and birds of many a feather, but now we concentrate mostly on the smaller animals—the chickens and the bees and other more stationary critters like maple trees and berry vines. And through plain hard work, my organizational skills and a penchant for list making—two things that Tom sometimes calls by other names—we’ve finally come into our own. And if, on a particular Sunday, we all need a bit of a sleep-in, I just go out to the barnyard and instruct the rooster not to crow.

But farm living isn’t all dungarees and pitchforks. Around here—where the flowers bloom like Geisha girls and the sunsets seem rouged by L’Oreal—it’s more of a compliment to mother nature than a contradiction that a lady of taste should harvest from her own silo of sparkle or barrel of bling from time to time. I mean, a girl has to compete with springtime somehow! If you should catch me in one of my many gardens, deep in mutual solicitation with my flamboyant cohorts—I to them with a pruning or a misting and they to me in a pageant of whispers that hangs like fairy dust just beneath the breeze—you’ll see that the counsels of beauty go both ways. I’m sure my grandfather, the Master gardener, cherished these bestowals as I am learning to.

Now if I can just bring myself back in from the garden for a moment, I’ll just say that I’d love for you to come with us on our journey of living and learning the ways of farm life. I hear that somewhere over across on the other side of the website Gramps is telling some stories, too, but without any of the juicy details and with all the dates mixed up. So stay put and you’ll get the full chronological renditions of stories of farm life, travelling, lyme disease (more on that later) sprinkled with all kinds cooking and baking tips. I even have a list of secret recipes as long as my arm, but you can’t have that…because my bracelets are on it.

Let’s talk some Grandma talk….
