The excellent ice creams from Udderly Ridiculous

( are smooth and rich, and come in six original flavours, with one big difference: They’re made with goat milk. In- spired by the herd of goats on their third-generation farm in Oxford County, Ontario, Greg and Cheryl Haskett decided to go into the ice cream business two years ago. They quickly garnered accolades and landed on the shelves of major retailers. You definitely have to be a fan of goat dairy to enjoy these frozen treats, but we found the heavenly Vanilla Bean Lavender to be the mildest. Bonus: 10 cents from every container is donated to Gift a Goat, a program that buys goats through World Vision for families in need. Udderly Ridiculous Goat’s Milk IceCream, 473mL, $8.99, Sobeys and Fortinos.

Olliffe Butcher Shop Since 1975, this iconic Rosedale butcher has been turning out some of Toronto’s best links. Fan favourites include Red Rooster (spicy Italian made with chicken and turkey) and Macedonian (pork flavoured with leeks and orange zest).
