The Apiary at 6Mile
In the media over the last decade, one cannot escape the ever-present talk of the declining honey bee population in North America. Some even say that our fate is entwined with the honey bee; without the cheap labour of honey bees to pollinate plants and foodplants, we as a species, could fi nd our global food sources dwindle.
At the Six Mile, we keep bees to do our part to help Mother nature. We use our honey to provide different fl avour profi les for many items including our desserts & Sixnature Cocktails.
We’ve also joined the Grease Cycle Project based in Duncan. This last year we saved 10.70 tonnes of greenhouse gases from being emitted into our atmosphere just by recycling our grease from our deep fryers.
Using specialty grains and fl ours, our artisan bakers make leavened breads and pizza dough from our lovingly-nurtured sourdough mothers: “Lucille” and “Sandy”. With proprietary blends of gluten-free fl ours and “Ellen”, our gluten-free sourdough mother, our bakers make gluten-free breads and pizza dough. Our commitment to controlling food safety and quality even extends to the tortilla chips used in our Nachos and Dips – each chip made with our proprietary blend, hand-cut and fried on premise.
All our pastas, including the Kids’ Macaroni are made fresh on premise using carefully selected ingredients - Canadian semolina, kale from our garden, beets from BC, and free-range local eggs. Every effort we make to source our ingredients thoughtfully and to create our food personally, translates into soul satisfying meals for you.
We buy Heritage Angus beef, turkey, porkloin, pork-butt and duck from Two Rivers. Two Rivers Specialty Meats Company in turn, partners with local farmers that share their same core-beliefs. As a result, we get ethically raised meats from any number of different farms at any given time.
Their name says it all: 63 cows in the average Canadian herd and of course, herds graze on large expanse of land or acreages. At 63 Acres, premium Angus cattle live well on carefully selected family owned farms in BC: free range, grass fed and grain finished without any added hormones or steroids. The Six Mile Pub use beef from 63 Acres’ ethically farmed and happily raised cattle in our beef burgers so we can transfer all that happy, natural goodness on to you!!
Parry Bay Sheep Farm
Parry Bay Sheep Farm is a mixed farm operating in the Metchosin area. Since the early 80’s John and Lorraine Buchanan have been striving to farm in a sensible and sustainable way. Their fi ve children have grown up on the farm and have contributed greatly to its success. Their mutton is far superior to most commercial lamb, tender and moist, with subtle fl avour.
Our oceans are facing a number of threats: overfi shing, climate change, pollution and urban development. Sustainable seafood can be defi ned as species that are caught or farmed in a way that ensures the long-term health and stability of that species, as well as the greater marine ecosystem. If you see the Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item, you know that option is the best choice for the health of our oceans.
Frog Friendly Wild Coffee
Frog Friendly Wild Coffee differs in ways that matter. Frog is WILD. It is not farmed. The environment is not altered. Chemical sprays and pesticides do not enter the equation. Seeded amongst the mango trees, vanilla orchids, cocoa and wild fl ora of the last remaining intact Cloud forest of Mexico, Frog Friendly Wild beans are a step beyond organic or fair trade.
