Cobblestone Farms

Introducing Joanna and Carl, Owners and Operators of Cobblestone Farm. In 2004 they moved from the UK to Canada and realized they were missing the quality flavours of home, specifically British pork recipes rich with crackling and fat. When the opportunity to move to an acreage near Davidson arose, they jumped at the chance to go back to the land, raise their own food, and live the good life. Joanna and Carl bring a combined 40+ years of experience in the meat industry and are proud to offer the Saskatchewan community an ethically sourced option of pasture raised, rare breed, Berkshire pigs.

Lucky for us, in 2019 Cobblestone Farm collaborated with the Regina Farmers’ Market with the intention of producing high-end, local selection of Berkshire Pork Products along with free-range chicken eggs and duck eggs. Not only do they offer superior protein products in the market, Cobblestone Farm also brings a genuine passion to their everyday process. This is evident in their ability to honour their British roots while also embracing the Saskatchewan community with shared recipes and tips to enjoy a taste of the UK on the prairies.

Stop by at this Saturday’s market and satisfy your British tastebuds!

Did you know the Regina Farmer’s Market is kid-friendly? Each week we have a FREE craft station your kids will love! Grab your groceries, taste your favorites from our Feature Menu, meet your local farmers, and teach your kids the value of eating fresh farm food in the city!

 

Fresh Green Veggies in January

Thanks to Floating Gardens, a hydroponic Greenhouse just outside Saskatoon, the Regina Farmers’ Market is able to offer fresh Sask Grown greens in January! After realizing only 4% of Saskatchewan food is self-sourced, siblings Rachel and Chris Buhler began their research to improve this statistic. After a few years of research and development, they currently operate out of a one half-acre roofed greenhouse and operate a family business to supply the Saskatchewan market with fresh greens, herbs, and vegetables.

This Saturday you can expect to find: Pea Shoots, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Baby Greens, and Kale

Be Sure to stop by early as these tend to sell out!
