Matthew and Carol Duke saw the advantages of drawing on the unique qualities of North Eastern Ontario to promote their products outside the region. They established strategic alliances with other local producers, created new products and added value to their traditional products. They market their farm-based products as "northern", "natural", "humane and healthy" through a website and farm retail store. Locally produced flour and barley-fed pork have been used to produce sausage rolls, specialty sausages, hams and high-value specialty cuts of pork, all marketed under the "Northern Flavors Ontario" campaign.
