Life on the Farm...

The days are starting to get longer, and we're waiting for the sun to get stronger...!

There aren't very many year-round farmers' markets in Ontario, and Orillia has 2! Unfortunately, neither one is thriving as it should be. When the vendors don't show up, the customers don't come back, and when the customers don't come, the vendors drop out... The last couple of weeks at the Orillia downtown market were very discouraging - only a few vendors and not many customers. Sorry to say, we won't be there for the rest of the winter. Our delivery on Thursdays is working well for us, and we will continue with this - to your home or work, between 4 and 6.
And of course we will continue at the Barrie market!

Growing opportunity – Are you interested in taking part in our farm this season? We are looking for enthusiastic people to partner with us on crops. Get in touch if you are interested!
