Canadian Thanksgiving corresponds to the European
autumnal harvest festivals marking the
magnificence at the conclusion of the annual
growing season. Celebrations include a cornucopia
of pumpkin, corn, wheat sheaves, and other
bounties of the harvest.
At Tall Grass we celebrate this season and
Thanksgiving with an abundance of deep
dish pumpkin pies and other amazing fall
Our pies are prepared with the freshest
ingredients. We start our pie making by pressing
our own organic and/or local pumpkins right at
Tall Grass. In an effort to remain aluminum free,
the pies are baked in real, deep dish pie plates.
Also available are made-to-order pecan,
apple, and prairie
fruit pies. Specials may vary.
Other pumpkin specials include muffins,
loaves and cheesecake.
Also enjoy our freshly pressed Manitoba
Apple Cider and be sure to make room on
your Thanksgiving table for our wonderful Harvest
Bread. This is truly a loaf for the
season, with visible goodness (including corn
kernels!) in every slice.
Please order ahead to avoid the Thanksgiving

Thanks be to God for an abundant harvest. May your
celebrations be graced with joy.
Try Baba’s Steppe Sandwich
Baba's Tall Grass Pantry Steppe Sandwich, named
after the grasslands of Eastern Europe, with a nod
to the Canadian prairies, is nitrate-free!
In selecting a local sausage-maker, we insisted on
avoiding the nitrates many of us are concerned
about. A delicious combination of Manitoba pork
and beef along with flavourful spices make these
farmers' sausages special. Nestled on a fresh
organic bun from Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company,
you may want to garnish your Steppe Sandwich with
caramelized onions, sauerkraut, ketchup and
mustard, which are all house-made, plus a pickle
from Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen.
Delicious on its own, you can also choose to make
it a Steppe Meal, complete with potato
wedges or buckwheat, and then choose from a salad,
coleslaw, or a 6 oz. bowl of steaming hot borscht.
