The Cottage Butcher

Walter Peter Demchuk



It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our dearest friend, Wally (Moose) Demchuk. Wally passed away earlier this year after a short but valiant battle with cancer. He holds a special place in our hearts and will be greatly missed. To those who touched so many wonderful aspects of his rich life - a heartfelt thank you.

Wally was happiest  when in Muskoka with family, friends, or chatting with customers. His sparkling blue eyes and warm sincere smile greeted each and everyone with pride and passion, a quality that will always be cherished.

At The Cottage Butcher we will continue Wally’s legacy with the same endearing passion and quality that he lived throughout his life.

It has always been our ambition to share our love of great food with others. In addition to fresh provisions you can pick up great recipes, meal suggestions or even prepared meals.
