Pork Chop: Some people think a pork chop should only be done in the pan on a stove or in the oven. We here at OVM have to respectively disagree and let us tell you why. Like a perfectly grilled steak, a perfectly grilled pork chop is nothing to sleep on. Start it off low and slow to let all that natural fat render into the meat and once that process is complete, crank up the temperature to finish off with those tantalizing grill marks. Finish it off by slathering some of your favourite BBQ sauce to get a nice glaze finish and you can call it a day. Our 8oz pork chops are from all free-range heritage pigs that are just bursting with flavour, You will never look at a pork chop again the same!

Sausages: Our in house-made sausages are just to die for! No fillers, all-natural casing, no gluten, no junk, just the pork and respective spices, that’s it! Sausages can sometimes be hit or miss, especially if they are being purchased from a grocery store, but fear not, no matter the flavour selected, all our sausages here at OVM are a home run! Each package contains 1lb of sausages made from our free-range heritage pigs. Throw them in a bun or eat them solo, pick a few flavours to really mix things up this summer on the grill.

Pork Tenderloin: While some people may think cooing a pork tenderloin on the BBQ may be a little unconventional, our super juicy tenderloins make the barbequing experience a real treat. Once again start the cook-off low and slow to let all that natural fat render into the meat and once that process is complete, crank up the temperature to finish off with those tantalizing grill marks. A nice glaze to finish will really elevate the tenderloin and take it to the next level. Each tenderloin is 1lb from our free-range heritage pigs, be adventurous and give a barbequed pork tenderloin a try!


Wings: An appetizer to some but don’t doubt that a couple of pounds of these will be all the protein needed for a night at the grill. Our chicken wings come from organically fed and raised White Rock chickens in a free-range environment that makes them a real mind-blowing experience. Super juicy, tons of meat on the bone, these puppies will not slip in between the grill grates. Season with salt & pepper and finish with your favourite sauce, whether you’re a flat or drum person you will never go back to a grocery store wing again.

B/S Thighs: Boneless skinless thighs have to be one of the most underrated protein items to throw on the grill. That juicy air chilled, no water added dark meat really hits different when they get a nice grill char on them. Season them to taste or leave them bare, either way, they will be sure not to disappoint this grilling season! Our thighs are packaged in 1lb portions, from our White Rock pasture-raised chicken here in the Ottawa Valley, you will taste the difference in pasture-raised chicken from the first bite, we promise!

Whole Chicken: This one might be a little harder for some people as a rotisserie is recommended to do the cook on a BBQ. Who doesn’t love a well seasoned, slow-cooked rotisserie chicken, are we right? We know you smell them as you cruise by the deli section in your local grocery store but now imagine smelling that in your own backyard with only the highest quality chicken being used, now that sounds amazing. Our White Rock whole chicken averages 3.5lbs in weight, they are gutted and ready to throw right on the rotisserie. Remember to collect those drippings and baste your bird every 30 mins or so to really ensure a juicy product at the end.
