Bessie Box

Bessie's First Year

bessie box thank you to our customers 2019 2020 vision

The meals we eat are less important than the people we eat them with. 


As we look back on 2019, we can’t believe how lucky we are! 

We feel like we’ve found the needle in the haystack—again and again—every time we’re able to deliver great tasting, healthy food to your door.

Bessie simply wouldn’t exist without you.

Every time you cook local food with loved ones, you bring joy to those around you (and help change the environment and producers for the better). Bessie started as a foodie dream of 3 young Calgarians, and now is sourcing and delivering the best local meat and seafood available (and at an impossibly good price).

bessie box thanks from us to youShanika, Alex, and Spencer love taste testing...and taking photos!

Here are just a few of the highlights from our year:

  1. We met and learned the stories of 5+ beef ranchers, 3 seafood providers, 2 chicken farmers, 3 butchers, and more
  2. Our producers all got paid above the market rate that factory farming system would pay them
  3. We collaborated with you through phone calls, text messages and emails to create recipes and changes to our product offerings
  4. We personally delivered to customers across Calgary, Chestermere, Cochrane, Airdrie, and Okotoks

We have big plans to offer more meat and seafood options and support more producers in 2020, but we need your support to make it happen! Tell a friend to use the code “2020VISION” to get 1 free New York Strip steak added to their order. We will also add a steak (and more) to your next order as well!

We’re looking for 20 new customers this January. We now have a Test Kitchen sample size option for people to try without the risk of a big order. Help us kick off the year with a bang!

Thank you for all you do to help share Bessie’s food and stories with the Calgary and area community. You make our dream a reality every day. We look forward to serving you in 2020.

With gratitude,

Alex, Shanika, and Spencer.
Bessie’s Chief Eating Officers
