Fall Season= fewer Extras available

  • We keep aside inventory for our CSA program but it gets significantly smaller as we go through October.
  • We restock for the beginning of the winter season!

Apples are Now in season!

  • As some of you may know...we do not grow apples. We are waaaaaaay to darn busy
  • When apples come in season, we get them for our CSA shares from Natures Bounty in Port Perry!
