OKTOBERFEST IS HERE
Oct. 18, 2013
PICARD'S ORIGINAL COUNTRY STORES - ST.JACOBS, TALBOTVILLE, WATERDOWN AND NOTL
This is the season for some of our Jumbo Bavarian Beernuts, one of the many great products we make here at Picard's. Fresh Kettle Chips are now available in two sizes all made with new crop 2013 potatoes. Second load is in and has been chipped. By next week, we hope to have done our next run of our "Beer-Bathed Taters". These are really washed in beer and then cooked, we don't sugar coat them and tell you they taste like beer. There's a difference, a malted crispiness and then lightly salted.
Our chocolate coated products are selling well, the fresh nuts and dried fruits, coated in our own unique milk and dark chocolates are noticeably better than what those other guys are passing off as Picard's.
Look for the logo with the Maple Leaf - it's a sign of the Original Picard Brand and signifies that quality is sold here.
New crop peanuts (2012) are now in stock!
Dec. 12, 2012

By mid-November, after more than two long years of preparation, building a facility, getting the necessary approvals, installing new equipment and test brewing, we are ready to launch "THE BREWERY FARM". Yes, we now have a facility where we are starting to brew OUR OWN line of Premium Beers. Our brand name is RAMBLIN' ROAD (www.ramblinroad.ca) , we are preparing to offer a "COUNTRY PILSNER" a "COUNTRY LAGER" and a"COUNTRY IPA". On the farm we have been growing 8 varieties of hops for 5 years now and are formulating to use this dynamite connection to agriculture in our brews. Cheers!

There are a few changes happening right now within the family business.
There have always been two parts to the Ontario Peanut business and PICARD PEANUTS
PICARD PEANUTS LTD (1979) (Jim Picard Sr.)
(Windham Centre, Fonthill, Morriston & Woodstock)
PICARD FOODS LTD (1982) (the next generation- John & Renee)
St.Jacobs, Talbotville, Waterdown, Niagara-on-the-Lake & Vaughan (2013)
In September 2012, we were unable to reach a succession plan for the existing businesses.
SO WHAT'S NEXT
John and Renee Picard, who have been with the family business for 30 years, will continue to drive the existing business (J.D.Picard's Incredible Snack Co., Ltd. - St.Jacobs, Talbotville, Waterdown, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Vaughan 2013), forward. Nothing has or will change within these retail locations
We wish our mother and father all the best in their decision to continue with Picard Peanuts Ltd.
OUR PRODUCT LINE AND AVAILABILITY
John and Renee have been actively involved in the development, design, processing and manufacture of all the great products we currently offer for retail sale, since 1992. All of our manufactured products are produced at the Waterford Confectionery processing facility under the supervision of John & Renee Picard
These stores will remain unchanged
ST.JACOBS, TALBOTVILLE, WATERDOWN, N.O.T.L.
