This weekend, it’s all about dads. Sunday, June 15th is Father’s Day, and we’re proud to celebrate our dad, Wayne Van Groningen, along with the other great fathers in our lives. We’re lucky to have our grandpas, uncles and extended family, friends, coworkers and neighbours to look at as examples of amazing fathers. And naturally, Father’s Day has taken on whole new meaning since all four VG brothers are now dads!
As the weekend approaches, here are three quick and easy gift ideas. Happy Father’s Day!
One of the greatest things about summer is being outside at local music and food festivals. We’ve got a great one coming up this weekend in Delaware, Ontario (just outside of London). If you love BBQ, smoked meat and good times, come out to Oma’s Big Green Egg Food Festival (or “Eggfest”) – a celebration of the Big Green Egg!
Local food producers come together
We were thrilled to be invited to this great event by our friend Brad at BJ’s Country Market. Brad has created something fun for his customers that brings the community together in a celebration of local food and seriously good cooking. The VG Meats team loves supporting this type of event and looks forward to serving up some amazing Norfolk County beef this weekend!
If you’ve been following our blog posts throughout the months of April and May, you probably noticed a theme. We’ve been talking about our aged beef: the 60 day aged, custom aged prime rib and other cuts, our incredible whiskey-aged beef and more. It’s been on sale through our #SocialBeef promotion (which ends TODAY – get yours now by using the hashtag #SocialBeef to get 10% off your order).
VG Meats at The Combine
Also, we’ve been talking about how VG Meats whiskey-aged striploin is on the menu at The Combine – an exceptional farm-to-table restaurant in Simcoe. Their chefs have done some amazing things with our aged beef and we couldn’t be more pleased to hear how much customers are enjoying it. Please call (226) 440-3369 to make your reservation – be sure to tell them you want to try the VG Meats aged beef!
