Tru Local Customized Meat Delivery Service

Recently I have become acquainted with the Tru Local program that sells local, organic meat delivered (fast and free) to your Ontario home.  I first heard of it on Dragon’s Den, then was reminded of it when I saw an ad on Facebook.  The meat contains no hormones and no antibiotics.   Unlike other companies that offer home delivery of grocery items, you select only the meat you want (will use).  I tried other food services years ago, but found I was always forced to add items I did not want to my package.


Using a point value system, Tru Local lets you customize your order with a total of 20 points per box.  Each item is individually wrapped, the meat is packed in a Styrofoam box and shipped in dry ice  via FedEx right to your door, usually the very next day.


There are lots of cuts and kinds of meat to choose from including chicken, turkey, beef, salmon and more…


If your family loves meat and you love the idea of buying organic, local products, this may be the program for you!  So far I love the products, the convenience and the knowledge I am supporting local farmers.

Dog meat to man’s best friend for Beemo and friends

This story from the winter Olympics in South Korea is gold medal worthy.  Gus Kenworthy, an American skier, has saved 90 puppies from becoming dog meat at a Korean dog farm.  He plans to bring the rescued puppies to the USA and Canada.

This is not the first time Kenworth has shown his displeasure over the way dogs are treated in other countries.  Using his Olympic connection, he has stepped up twice now to show his disproval of dog farms prevalent in Asian countries.  During the last winter Olympics (2014) he brought home stray dogs found wandering the streets of Sochi:

This (2018) Olympics in PyeongChang South Korea Kenworth rescued the 90 puppies from their dismal fate at a local dog farm. He and a friend were horrified to see the conditions the dogs were living in.


Unfortunately, there are still no regulations preventing dogs from being slaughtered for their meat in many countries around the world.  Dog meat is a common ingredient sold in Korean (as well as other Asian) markets, used to make stews, soups and more:


This story is one of the many feel good stories out of the recent winter Olympics.   Welcome to America Beemo (the one puppy Kenworth is keeping for himself) and friends, where dogs are man’s best friend not a food source.
