Low Carb Food Shopping and Supporting Local Business: Smits and Cow Farm

This past weekend after working one of our weddings with Vancouver Mobile Makeup in the valley we drove by an adorable sign simply saying “Cheese and Pork” at a farm on Lickman Road in Chilliwack, so obviously we HAD to stop!

Smits & Co.w Farm Cheese is a family-run farm that makes gouda style cheese from their holstein and brown swiss cows. They also carry Dutch candies and snacks as well as a freezer full of meats from Verard Farms. Some days they also offer farm fresh eggs for sale as well; I was so sad I missed out (they get snatched up really quickly) 🙁

It took a while to decide, but I got a wedge of the blueberry cheese, a tri-pack of chilli pepper, stinging nettle, and tzatziki, a pack of farmer sausage, and two packs of bacon. Because BACON.

I am super excited to try the stinging nettle. I love new and usual or creative foods.

It was such a nice way to cap off a sunny day and support local business … and deal with post-work hunger 🙂

If you’re out near Chilliwack, BC, take the south exit onto Lickman Road. The farm will be on your right.
Store Hours: Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9-5.
Look for the Cheese and Pork sign and enjoy!

P.S. What are your favourite kinds of cheese? Would you try something new and unusual?
