Trussler’s Pantry is more than a convenience that I have come to depend upon.
As a single parent and business woman, who deeply values seasonal food that has been grown to organic and permaculture standards, I found it very difficult to attend the local farmer markets due to my work schedule.  These markets are wonderful places but are only open for a few hours each week – not great when most of my shopping was being done late at night.
Trussler’s Pantry was the solution for me – I now get local produce in both winter and summer and it is delivered to my door.  My fridge, freezer and pantry are now always stocked with beautiful fruits and vegetables (and sometimes Kara throws in a wonderful surprise).  I know that I am supporting both a small business and local farmers in this region when I purchase my Harvest Boxes rather than giving my money to multinational corporations.
The added bonus was making friends with Kara and Mandie. It’s always great to meet others in Northeastern Ontario who are as equally passionate about local food.


Such an amazing program run by amazing people! Thank you for all the work you put into this!

I have received three bins now. My veggies have never lasted so long or tasted so good. These alive and vibrant foods with real energy is truly natures natural medicines. How food is suppose to taste ! The pantry provides you with lots of information on how to store, awesome recipes and so much more. My children are always excited to see what we are getting and to make healthy snacks. We certainly are what we eat. All starts with what we are feeding ourselves. Thank you for going back to what is most important and providing our area with such an important thing!! Self love starts with our food and water.


Trussler’s Harvest means feeding my family the best possible nutrition I can get them in the North. I also feel good knowing that, being a part of the Harvest, I’m helping to build a responsibly minded organic farming economy that is focused on being local.
