FBF Becoming Part of the Two Rivers Food Hub
It is with very mixed feelings that Fitzroy Beef Farmers moves their operations to the Two Rivers Food Hub in Smith Falls. The Co-op has enjoyed your loyal support for over 10 years and we have made a lot of new friends. This has been a difficult decision to make but one that was inevitable given the much improved beef prices since our inception in 2005 when the U.S. border was closed to Canadian beef.
The Two Rivers Food Hub, a grass-roots, not-for-profit company with a mandate to support the small farm community in our area, will continue our FBF brand with only minor changes. The Hub will not be participating in the Ottawa Farmer's Market but will be establishing a delivery route and schedule for family orders at pickup and drop-off locations for initially at least, Carleton Place, Almonte, Kanata, and Ottawa.
FBF would like to thank the City of Ottawa for their valued funding support through the Rural Association Partnership Program (RAPP) in the early start-up days.
Thanking you for your support,
Fitzroy Beef Farmers Co-operative
