Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) has been instrumental in linking Spud with organic producers in Alberta. When Durbridge sought an organic chicken producer, for example, her contact at ARD immediately connected her to TK Ranch southeast of Red Deer. TK now supplies Spud with free-run chicken and turkey. ARD also introduced Durbridge to a new baker who “makes the best sourdough ever.” This ARD matchmaking supports both sides of the industry. It helps local vendors find a rewarding market and enables Spud to stock their shelves. Durbridge cannot imagine having to seek out all the vendors Spud needs on her own.
