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.

For the week of October 2nd to the 8th, 2012, we have been sampling our first two beers, at the Norfolk County Fair in Simcoe, Ontario. The Country Pilsner and the Country Lager were a great hit. Yes ! we can produce a premium beer in Norfolk and thousands of samplings for the week will attest to that. The support and encouragement has been tremendous, we thank you for the kind words and support. See you in November when we ramp up for the retail trade. (On site only, La Salette)
