potatoes 2018 resizedBringing in the Taters! 

 This week on the farm -

Well, good thing we harvested the last potatoes before the snow... and the cold!

The weeks go by too fast – with the snow cover and cold, our spinach is done, unless the weather gets warm again? I doubt it! Now we are down to harvesting green kale every week, until it's gone too.

Good news – Ontario organic sweet potatoes! So happy to see them available, and a great price – only $1.70/lb.

The sauerkraut is ready this week! Kimchee next week, or the week after...

And we are making Ground Nut Stew this week - yummy~

 Beef – Our first beef of the year will be ready about December 7. If you would like to pre-order any cuts of beef, please email it to us.

If you ordered a side or split side, I have emailed you your cut list request . If you did not receive it, let me know...

We do still have sides or split sides available, at $5.20/lb. A split side will yield about 125 lbs of beef, and will cost about $900.00. For  January delivery.

 Empty boxes! Don't forget to bring back your empty box, or leave it outside for pickup if you are having delivery – too good for the recycling bin!!
