“Backyard Farm” Hand Crafted Preserves and Products

Classical cooking methods are at the forefront of my food philosophy. With this in mind, it is the “old world” thought process that inspires “Backyard Farm” products. From my recipes developed with all natural, sustainable, fresh and high quality ingredients-to the preserving of these products, utilizing local produce year round, and preserving at the prime state of ripeness.

I offer an extensive list of evolving products for wholesale or retail sale, on their own, or as an extension of the uniquely Okanagan Culinary Experience.When possible, the majority of ingredients are grown on our property.Additional quality ingredients are sourced locally, from other like minded, passionate growers and suppliers.

Available products change frequently and are dependent on production quantity and product demand. Items you may find on the shelves of my “Backyard” kitchen could be:

Forbidden Rice and Quinoa Crackers( Recipe Developed in the kitchen of Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2010- Gluten Free, Vegan, and great for wine pairings as well!)

Assorted Marmalades,Jams and Jellies(savory and sweet)

My Hot Sauce(recipe was developed in 2008 in the kitchen of The Sonora Room Restaurant, at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery)
