Farm Happenings for May 18, 2022

Posted on May 14th, 2022 by Marnie Chown

It's the first box of spring veggies for 2022! Woohoo! 


Welcome to our veggie CSA program if this is your first year participating...if not, welcome back! 

We are excited to be starting our shares for the season and we hope you all enjoy your first batch of farm fresh veggies! 


A few things are different this season and we are all adjusting please bear with us if anything goes awry! As always, please let me know if you've got any questions or concerns by replying here or writing me at I'm here to help!



To start off the season we have veggies coming out of our greenhouses. Due to the cold and extremely wet spring, we don't have much growing outside at the moment but the houses are chock full!



If you're a spinach lover, NOW is the time to snap it up and fill your freezer! With the temperatures rising to fast, the spinach will be gone soon since it tends to bolt in the heat. The leaves are big and delicious!



We also have the first of our seedlings available as swaps. There will be more to come but not sure about which varieties yet since it will depend how many we plant here. Keep in mind that these peppers and tomatoes will need to be protected from the weather until nighttime temperatures are a bit more stable.



We have a few items available in the extras area so be sure to check them out!


Vichos Honey is based in Kemptville and their winter creamed honey is our favourite! We will have their spring and summer honey listed in the coming weeks.


Barking Root Botanicals is owned and operated by our very own Sarah Boni! You might have already met her or tried her products...she has been with us since the beginning! All of her herbs are grown right here on the farm alongside our veggies! Listed this week are a few of her herbal wellness products including a wonderful itch-stop salve (just in time for bug bites...) and two different herbal-infused oils. More of her products will be listed as they become available throughout the season!
