What we do

Buying local food can be hard for a busy family.

I think that many of us would love to purchase more items locally but there are barriers.  Locally grown foods are often hard to find or time consuming to connect with the right person at the right time.  It typically means making multiple relationships with multiple producers to get everything we need.  There is also a perception that Local is always more expensive.  We are working really hard to break down these barriers and make Local Foods, convenient to access, readily available and economical.

What if the local food came to you?

We deliver locally produced groceries to your home or workplace 6-days a week. Select from over 1000 local products and a range of delivery options like before and after work, on the weekend, or choose to order for pickup at our Warehouse.

Whether it’s grass-fed steak, free range chickens and their eggs, produce from year-round greenhouses, fresh bread, locally roasted coffee, ready-to eat items, craft beers, amazing local sweets and treats, cleaning supplies, bath and body products, and much, much more – we want to make it easier to buy, and most importantly, EAT nutritious and delicious local food. We are passionate about helping to grow the variety and availability of local food.


Who we are

Tim and Carla Shultz are 4th generation farmers.  You may have ran into them once upon a time at the Regina Farmers market at their farm booth, The Green Ranch.  As young entrepreneurs trying to make a go in agriculture they diversified into direct to consumer marketing with their vegetable farm.  They quickly realized the need for a better way to market their product.  Tim would spend most of the week away from the farm selling his product while Carla would watch over the team on the farm…along with their two young children.  Tim found his passion in direct marketing and connecting with consumers so with their connections in the Local Food Industry they quickly put together a great list of producers and launched Local and Fresh with co-founders Andrew and Jennifer Rathwell.


Why we do it

The goal of Local & Fresh is to grow the size and sustainability of the local food network by making it easier for consumers to choose local food options.

At the same time we seek to help producers grow by increasing the size and access to the local food market as well as the efficiency of the local food distribution system.

When you buy local, you’re supporting your friends, your neighbours, and people who live where you live.


Quality. Sustainability.

What does Fall mean to you? Bounty, Family, Community, Fundraising, and turkeys?

Posted by | September 14 | No Comments on What does Fall mean to you? Bounty, Family, Community, Fundraising, and turkeys?

To a farmer fall means harvest…late hours, endless appreciation for mother nature, crisp nights, dewy mornings, chance of frost, family, reward for a season of labour…and more.  To me fall has always had a special place in my heart.  When I was a kid it was riding in the tractor with my dad being mesmerized […]
