What's New?

You are invited to By the Bushel's annual 'Feed The Farmer' potluck!!!

Here is a great chance to meet the farmers and producers who worked so hard this year to provide delicious and nutritious food for our baskets. This is also a chance say 'thank-you', by cooking them a great meal.

Please join the BTB community as we celebrate all the farmers and everything that helped grow such delicious and nutritious food this season!

We will be gathering at: Sadleir House, 751 George Street North, Peterborough, ON on Thursday November 27th from 6pm-8pm

If you are a 'consumer' please bring a dish (nut-free) to share, if you are a farmer please bring only yourself (and your family)! This is an all-ages event. The more the merrier! Please RSVP to coop@bythebushel.ca
