We are thrilled to present a shared Thanksgiving experience with our friends near and far. It is inspired by our JoieFarm team’s favourite family traditions spanning tables from the West Coast to the Maritimes. It is our hope that even though you might not be able to gather with all your loved one’s this year, that we can collectively share a harvest table “en famille” across the country together.
Our team’s heritage is a mix of Easterners, Québécois, one Italian Canadian, one Filipina-American, one Vegetarian and one French trained chef. We have shared our team’s family favourites below to inspire your own autumn feast.

This recipe for Savoury Sage and Squash Galette is inspired by our friends at Joy Road Catering at the Penticton Farmer’s Market. Every Thanksgiving, Chef Dana Ewart, famous for her galettes would bring squash galettes instead of Pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving weekend. Inspired by her "out-of the box thinking" I have included a recipe for a savoury squash version perfect for a Thanksgiving appetizer. Serve with Quotidien Brut or A Noble Blend.
Célébration de la Vie was created in memory of our friend, collaborator and prolific artist, Dale Nigel Gobel, as a celebration of his life and works. Dale created JoieFarm’s labels and graphics for 19 years, including the original Joie logo doodle in 2001. His ‘look and feel’ has permeated the spirit of JoieFarm for two decades strong and this special wine was inspired by him and intended to celebrate springtime and the renewal that comes with this hopeful season.
