Peasant's Pantry: A Traditional Deli

Peasant's Pantry has been making a variety of specialty meats and charcuterie, including fresh and smoked sausages, house-smoked ham, bacon and pâtés, since 2011. We use high quality, locally raised meat and practice nose-to-tail butchery. All of our specialty meats are made without fillers and are therefore gluten-free.   

We are excited to now be in our 3rd year in our shop & deli at 4491 Highway 12, New Ross! Open as of Canada Day weekend 2014, in addition to our specialty meats, we now offer butcher cuts of NS meat, free-range Valley chicken, local cheeses, sauerkraut, homemade pickles and more.

We also have a full menu for eat-in or take-out with an emphasis on local and homemade products! Check out the links above to see our full menu, weekly specials, product list and photo galleries.
