Thursday is American Thanksgiving, and we thought now was a good time to say thanks to Boxcar Marketing friends and clients who champion sustainability. It’s one thing to be innovative, and a whole other to be innovative and helping the planet.
Chefs who source local food and cook with sustainable ingredients now have an eco-friendly choice when it comes to their chef jacket.
Dajoji chef coats are designed by chefs for chefs and are made from 100% organic, unbleached cotton. The coats are also stylish. Managing Partner Jessica Robinson brings to Dajoji her fashion experience from leading retailer lululemon athletica, and Fashion Designer Leanne McElroy worked with Founder and Chef Anthony Nicalo to bring to life the initial designs. The fitted style is especially flattering on female chefs. Dajoji Kitchen Performance Apparel is available in all sizes.
Plus the Holiday Gift Pack is a great deal!

Agricola Marrone Moscato d’Asti Soleil d’ Oro is my breakfast wine. Absolutely delicious.
Farmstead Wines imports rare artisan wines that are handcrafted on small farms. The wines are made by the very same farmers who grow the grapes, without irrigation, chemicals or manipulation.
Our favourite farmer at Boxcar Marketing HQ is Gian Piero Marrone. Gian Piero Marrone continues a long-standing family tradition of winemaking, started by nonno Pietro Marrone nearly six decades ago. The family’s vineyards are situated throughout the hills of the Langhe region in Annunziata, Cuneo, just outside the village of La Morra in northwestern Italy. As mentioned, the Moscato is one of our favourite wines in the Farmstead collection. It has fruity aromas, crisp clean acidity, pleasant aromatic nose, and is well balanced with a tinge of frizzante and only 5% alcohol. (See, you could have that for breakfast, right?)
Ask for the wine in your local wine shop or favourite restaurant (Canadian list of retail stores is here or US info is here) or join the Vinaroon CSA Network (http://www.farmsteadwines.com/howtobuy/wine-csa/) and get $60-$75 bottles of the very best of Farmstead’s artisan wines for only $40 a bottle! The wines are delivered directly to your door - shipping is free! How civilized is that?
