Farm Update – June 12th, 2020

Another rainy day.

An upside to all this wet weather, we haven’t had to irrigate our crops much.

We started cutting down part of the first crop of alfalfa this week for silage, and luckily got all of it into the bags before the rain hit. Good timing on the master farmer around here, Kevin Day! We are still crossing our fingers for some dry weather so that we can take down the rest of the first crop.

The gardens are really loving this rain; everything is so green and happy! When the clouds part and we getting a little bit of sunshine, the plants are going to just burst with energy.

We are still actively working on our online Market Garden, and are very excited for the harvest season for you all to try it out. We can’t wait to make it easier for our customers to get their favourite local produce!

Until next time!

Farm Update – June 5th, 2020

Hi everyone! We can’t believe that it is already June! This season is really moving!

Lately a lot of our energy has been going into tending to our youngest orchard, spreading the limbs and training the tree to grow to ensure good production in the future. The pear crop is looking great, the pears are sizing up in the heat we have been having the last few days.

As for our gardens, things are looking really great! Our weed control is paying off and the gardens are beautiful, the plants are thriving. The image posted with this update is our potato patch; I love the straight lines with the buildings in the background. You can look forward to our beautiful red, white, and yukon gold potatoes this market season!

Soon we will be taking our first crop of hay off; the alfalfa fields are tall! We are crossing our fingers for the weather to stay dry.

Until next time!

Farm Update – May 29th, 2020

Hi everyone! With the remodeled website, we want to get back into the habit of posting updates here. So keep your eyes open for any new posts!

This year has been a strange one so far, with the current world circumstances as they are. But we are still working away as we normally would. The gardens are just about fully planted, and the plants are happy and moving. Our famous corn has been loving the rain and heat over the last while, and you can almost watch it grow.

Our alfalfa fields are luscious and tall, so we will be taking off our first hay crop soon. Keep your fingers crossed for dry weather!

The pear orchard has since bloomed, and now the little pears are thriving; we will be starting to thin the crop soon!

We are really looking forward for the upcoming season. Please keep your ears open for any information in regards to the online store I am in the midst of creating. Our Market Garden is going to operate as normal, with the new social norms of course. We are all super excited to provide you all with your favourite local produce!

Until next time!
