BLB & Co. was started as an outlet to express founder Stuart Li’s Hong Kong heritage fused with the experience of growing up in the multicultural city of Toronto. BLB stands for Bo Lo Bao aka Hong Kong “PIneapple” Buns – except they don’t have PIneapples in them, the name comes from the crackled appearance of the crust. It’s our signature product and we level it up a notch with flavoured crusts and fillings like Chocolate Hazelnut or Almond Frangipane for example. Along with BLBs,we create other Asian inspired breads and treats fused with North American or European traditions – case in point our Yuzu Miso Buttertart is a unique take on a Canadian classic! We source Canadian and Ontario ingredients when possible, and all flours, grains and dairy products are Canadian.

Evermeadow is a new regenerative, pasture-based farm in the rolling hills of Northumberland County. Josh and his family will be bringing their organically fed, pastured broiler and roaster chickens to the market for the remainder of the season. They’re working on raising pigs and sheep as well but those animals will only be ready for late autumn.
As a farm, they work to provide nutritious, ethical, and ecologically beneficial food for our communities while increasing the biodiversity and productivity of the land. This description sums up their operation well: Our hens scratch up compacted soil and spread seed and fertile manure; our sheep manage the grass, distribute nutrients, and build soil; our pigs recycle waste nutrients and disturb the soil to prepare for re-seeding pastures; and our broiler chickens bring fertility into the farm as they move daily across the landscape.

Fifth Town Artisan Cheese produces fresh chèvre, bloomy rind bries, chardonnay and wine soaked, brushed and washed rind firm and aged artisan cheeses made from locally sourced Ontario cow,goat and water buffalo milk.
Our Platinum LEED certified building and green initiatives (geothermal, solar and wind power) reflect our socially responsible vision. Our family has its roots in fine cheese importation and Italian cheese making in Parma, Italy. With a team of local staff, including head cheesemaker Chad Peterson, we are developing new and evolving traditional recipes with a twist to satisfy the growing sophistication of consumers who appreciate fine wine and travel. Bringing products from our dairy to your table and supporting local farmers is essential to contributing to and sustaining our community.
At Fifth Town we believe in honestly expressing the beautiful Prince Edward County terroir with which we are blessed. Whether it is the cow milk from Jean’s “Quinte Crest” farm down the road or the goat milk from the herder an hour away, we craft something truly authentic that connects us to the land we live on, giving us taste, sense and pride of place.
In our day and age, filled with rushed consumables and mass produced goods, we invite you to venture out to us and try a little something that only patience, a small batch, and some loving artisan intervention can create. You will love it here!
