Feeling the loss of Orr’s butcher shop

Brentwood Bay will feel just a little more empty without Orr’s Butcher Shop

Brentwood Bay will feel just a little more empty without Orr’s Butcher Shop.

When our family moved here we were told they were the place to go for some of the most amazing meats around — Orr’s lived up to that reputation as far as I am are concerned.

The loss of such a small business is not insignificant for a village like Brentwood Bay. Not least because as we lose butchers and bakeries we further lose a connection to our food.

In many ways farming and food security awareness is growing here on the Saanich Peninsula, but we can never take for granted that such awareness and connection to food is permanent.

Thank you for the amazing product over the last couple of years. You will be missed.
