Posted on April 20th, 2020
Our first cucumbers will be on the list this week, plus more salad mix than last week.  It's a sign that the weather is changing (despite the very cold weather we've had this past week). If you are still considering signing up for our weekly subscription (CSA) boxes, we only have a couple of spots... read more »

Cucumbers coming soon!  Next week we will have the first flush of cucumbers from our greenhouse!  This week we have many of the same products as last, but greens are much more limited (sorry! we need some warmer weather).  We have added teff crackers and a few cheeses from Carmela's (if... read more »

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 »

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 »
