Christmas Dinner Planning

Nov 22 , 2023

Christmas Dinner Planning

Are you feeling the Christmas spirit? The Christmas season is almost here, and it’s time to start planning for your Christmas Dinner! Whether you prefer a turkey, ham or roast, one thing is for sure – food always tastes better when it’s shared with family and friends.

A great way to ensure your feast goes off without a hitch is by planning ahead. Pre–ordering your main dish not only cuts the stress associated with last-minute shopping but also ensures that you get the desired size of bird, ham or roast for your dinner. It prevents those unplanned changes in the menu and having to spend extra time in the kitchen.

Once you have your meal planned and those key ingredients and meats secured, it’s time to focus on the fun stuff – spending time with those you care about. Inviting family and friends to help prepare the meal is a great way to create wonderful memories while passing on traditions and spending extra time together. 

No matter who you have invited to your table, there’s something special about the warmth and joy of a shared holiday meal together. So, grab a plate and join in on creating new memories that will last a lifetime.

Our Christmas Ham Campaign is now in its 6thyear, and this year, in addition to providing Hams to those under the care of the Haldimand Norfolk Women’s Servies(HNWS), we are setting a big goal to help the HNWS shelter cover the cost of meat for a FULL YEAR. To do this, we need to raise $4,500.

We are starting this campaign off with our own donation of $600 and hope that you will join us by adding a donation to your Christmas or Holiday order.

We have created monthly sponsorship packages to help us reach this goal. These $250 sponsorships can be purchased by a business, family or individual. With a max of 2 sponsors per month.

Individual donations can be made in any amount and every donation helps.

A Heartfelt Thank You

As our customer appreciation celebration comes to a close, we wanted to share with you this little but heartfelt message.

Thank you for your support

Over this past year, we have done our very best to keep our customers and staff safe. It has been a rollercoaster of everchanging rules and regulations both behind the scenes for our production teams and in the forefront affecting our front of house retail staff and you, the customer.

We won’t lie, it was stressful, but our goal was to ensure food security and a safe environment for our staff and customers alike.

…and what was the number one thing that kept us going through all this?


As we navigated these uncharted waters, you supported us and encouraged us. You shared with us your patiencecompassion and kind words. We received hand-drawn pictures and thank you cards, and at every turn, we saw the positive impact we were making as we strived our best to serve our community.

Text Description automatically generatedAnd so, for all of this, from our family to yours, we send this message of thanks.




We look forward to serving you again soon,

Steve and Jeff Miedema
