Saugeen Country Dairy

yogurtI’ve discovered this yogurt today at my favourite organic produce store at Kensington. It’s made by Saugeen Country Dairy, a dairy farm between Markdale and Durham, here in Ontario, with only two ingredients: non-homogenized whole milk and bacterial culture. It is plain yogurt as it has been made for thousands of years, before the industrialization of food rendered it full of sugar e milk ingredients rather than milk (a milk ingredient is stuff like powdered milk, milk protein. I’ve been favouring fresh and wholesome foods, as unprocessed as I can get it, for a while. And after reading Michael Pollan’s books, I’m even more keen in eating real food. This yogurt will probably become part of my staples.

Fort York

Built by the British to protect the town of York (aka Toronto) from American invasion in the late 18th century, Fort York was destroyed during the war of 1812 and re-built in 1815. Most of the buildings date from the 1810s and it is a nice place to bring the kids. We visited on Canada Day, it wasn’t crowded, and all the kids seemed to be having a great time running around the grounds and imitating the soldiers. It’s a very informal place, you can poke your head into most of the buildings and touch things, as well as being right near the soldiers when they are marching. There are not barricades keeping the people away. Here are a few pictures:
