OAFE Award – Bringing the Homestead Tradition to Your Table

Michelle Nichols has a secret. No, no, not that secret. Another one. I wouldn't dare tell that one. Michelle is from Drake, Saskatchewan. Drake may be known for many things, but I know it for two:
  • Home base for the Wiens clan.
  • World headquarters for Drake Meat Processors, the best smoked farmer sausage factory on earth!
Look at them hang!Michelle gave me 2 coils of farmer sausage for my birthday this year, and we had the first one this week. All OAFE aspirants be warned: this particular OAFE Award really raises the bar on future awards ... the sausage is that good. I will be writing Drake Meats a letter suggesting that I become their exclusive Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec distributor. I may never send it, but I'm going to write it. Off to Radiohead in Toronto!
