Posted on December 8th, 2019
This will be the second last week of the winter CSA so if you are a bi-weekly member, this is your last share.  Some have asked, how do we get veggies from you in the winter?  You have a couple of options.  First, we will be at the market at Western Fair every Saturday and Sunday all... read more »

3 weeks left in the fall CSA! We had a window of really nice weather the week before last when the Grade 3 class from the London Waldorf school joined us to help dig the last harvest of carrots from the ground.  These carrots will be donated to Christmas Care St.Thomas-Elgin.  We will begin... read more »

New Farm stand!  Finally we made time to renovate our stand at the Western Fair market and we're getting good reviews.  The wood came from our old "back barn" which will need to be dismantled this winter and spring. This week we have bought in some sweet potatoes from our neighbours at the... read more »

A taste of winter greeted us this past week.  After a mad scramble to get out of the field what we could, we had to wash and pack our CSA and market produce in our "winter" wash station which involved wrapping our outside wash station in plastic and putting some temporary heat in it.  This... read more »

A cold snap is coming to us this week, so we've been rushing to get everything winterized and ready.  It seems that every year it comes suddenly and we are scrambling to harvest anything sensitive, but I guess that's always going to be how it goes!  We still have some very hardy crops outside... read more »

November is upon us and we are making serious headway through our fall task list.  This time of year for us is always a bit of a race to the finish.  We have some colder weather coming later this week and still a few tasks that need to get done before it really sets in.  We have almost... read more »

Fall tasks are still under way!  This week we are planting the 2020 garlic crop.  Our garlic did very well this year so we're hopeful we have excellent planting stock and should be able to build our stock for next year. This week we have bread from Seth, but after that he will be taking 2... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 10, 2019

Posted on October 7th, 2019
Fall has come suddenly on the farm this past week, at least weather-wise.  We're actually happy for it in some ways since we have many crops that are destined to be stored for the next 3-4 months in our cooler and they are ready to be harvested.  We now have our larger cooler operational for... read more »
