WHO WE ARE
Trussler's Pantry is a family owned business which opened with the concept to bring healthy foods to our family. Living in Northern Ontario in a rural area and raising 4 children it became quite evident that it's a lot of work, time and energy to resource Organic, Fresh, Local foods and meats in our area. As a family, we were driving far and wide to bring good food and products back to our home, most of our vacations were spent doing groceries and bringing them home. As a mother of 4, my desire is to feed my family healthy, fresh and toxin free foods so that my children and husband remain healthy for years to come. I wanted that kind of availability that we experienced on vacation here in Matheson. This idea already went hand in hand with the job that I am doing.
As a Master Fitness Instructor and a health enthusiast of 10 years, teaching others how to eat right and take care of their bodies was something I had already been doing. As I taught others to live healthy lifetsyles I realized there is a lack of healthy foods and organic foods in our area. In the Trussler family both my daughter, Amettaia, and I are celiacs so the need to keep a clean gluten free diet was also challenging. And that is where the pantry started. We built a small addition on our home and made some birch shelving from our very own birch trees bought 2 freezers and placed our first order. It started by sharing our foods with personal training clients, friends and family. We soon built a website so that we could share with others also. Now everyone in our family has a position in our family owned business. I continue to teach fitness classes in my area, helping our community stay active and healthy!
Kara is still very passionate about leading and helping others. She continues to teach fitness classes in the area. " It's my favourite thing in the world to push and encourage others to be the best they can be and to always know you can ALWAYS push a little harder than you think. "
Through this journey we have met some AMAZING people and we now work with a local farmer just down the road from us who shares the same passion as we do. He is a Certified Organic Farmer. Together we created a program called the Organic Harvest, the program connects people like you with farm fresh organic foods delivered to your door all season long. As a child my husband and his family were farmers, they farmed the very land we live on from 1980 and on. My husband has a passion to see the farm flourish again and also to see more farmers in our area get paid a fair wage for their hard work. Joe's parents threw in the towel farming, as it did not produce a significant income and decided to do other jobs to pay the bills. With that background and the voices of the farmers Trussler's Pantry is working with Farmers to help them get paid what they are worth while helping people connect to their food. There is a wide misconception that if you go to the farmer you will get a deal. People have also forgotten, and perhaps never knew, where their food comes from and how it gets from farm to table and this is something we are very passionate about educating others. Farming is not easy and it comes with a lot of work, trials and frustrations, some of us won't even experience a quarter of the work that farmers do in our lifetime. So there it began, two people's passions, desires and lifestyle choices created what we now call Trussler's Pantry.
We look forward to offering quality foods to our community and help raise awareness on ORGANIC farming and GMO free foods. We support our local farmers who also farm ecologically and organically.
