Le traiteur Demeter de Luskville s'est joint au producteur d'agneau de Beechgrove JAE Farm pour nous offrir de délicieux et frais plats prêts-à-manger au Marché des fermiers de Bristol.

 La ferme JAE Farm produit de la très bonne saucisse d'agneau faite à la main et exempte de produits de remplissage et de préservatifs. Seulement des épices et des herbes fraîches sont utilisés pour arômatiser la viande d'agneau élevé en pâturage. Vous pourrez en acheter déjà grillées pour utilisation immédiate sur un pain pita avec de la salade et du yogourt ou congelées pour faire cuire à la maison.

Demeter utilise aussi l'agneau JAE pour créer de délicieux mets inspirés de la culture des amoureux de l'agneau à travers le monde.  Aujourd'hui (23 juin), nous nous inspirons de l'Inde pour vous offrir un gigot d'agneau rôti avec sauce épicée au yogourt servi avec du riz, du dahl et des légumes.Le traiteur Demeter offre aussi des produits prêts-à-manger congelés et faits maison,comme de la lasagne,du chili et des boulettes de viandes en sauce tomate, n'utilisant que des produits locaux et de la viande élevée en pâturage.

The MRC des Collines de Gatineau is comprised of 7 municipalities. The smallest Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette is small enough to be exempt from complying with the Provincial Residuals Strategy. The two most densely populated, Cantley and Chelsea, have respectively 83 and 60 people per square kilometre. These two municipalities also have the highest median household income by a considerable margin.

The Québec residual materials management strategy includes a progressive reduction and eventually a “ban” of organic material from municipal landfills by 2020.  Municipalities who comply with the policy are eligible for funding to help offset the costs.   The Municipality of Pontiac has responded by passing a resolution to initiate door to door collection with costs paid for by the residents.
