Farm Happenings for April 2, 2020

Posted on March 26th, 2020
Phew!  What a week.  Switching from going to market to pre-selling veggies has been a big sudden shift for us on the farm.  As most of you found, using our CSA box software for simple pre-ordering was not the most ideal solution in week 1 and we apologize for the difficulty! I have tried... read more »

Weekly Order from Common Ground Farm

Posted on March 19th, 2020
This is the weekly ordering system for Common Ground Farm.  Due to the measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have decided not to attend our weekly market at the Western Fair District and restrict our sales to pre-orders through this system.  We take the health of our workers and customers... read more »

Last week of our 2019 CSA!  A huge thank-you to everyone for being part of it this year.  The entire farm team honestly feels very appreciative towards every one of our CSA members.  It's because of you all that we get to grow vegetables for our job!

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 »

Posted on November 11th, 2019
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 »
