What's Happening at the Farm?

Happy Canada Day! What a beautiful land we live on. The markets in Barrie and Orillia are on as usual July 1 – be sure to start your Canada Day with a trip to the markets.

More rain and cool weather again this week, to slow the garden down even more. We will harvest some early turnips this week, and more salad mix. Our spinach will be back on the list in a couple weeks. Chard, kale, and head lettuces are growing nicely – maybe next week for our first farm romaine and kale.

And we'll have some wonderful beet greens this week – for salads, smoothies, or steamed  - super tasty.

We're having difficulty getting direct seeding done with all the rain, but we'll be transplanting more kale, salad mix, and some flowers this week.

We will be starting the Gravenhurst market next week – July 5th

Also, you now receive immediate confirmation of your order by email.  Please read through the new instructions in the "On-Line Order Form" area at the bottom of this page.
