Setting the seedlings free!

Hello Again, Friends of the Farm!

Our next mini market is Saturday, April 23rd!  It is the LAST mini market of the season…  You’re on your own till Lakefield Farmers’ Market, Thursday, May 26th or Port Perry Farmers’ MarketSaturday, June 4th!  Or you can get a Certified Organic Summer vegetable share, and get your veggies every week starting end of May or beginning of June depending on Mother Nature’s mood…

No complaints about the weather this week!  The seedlings were eager to get out into the fresh air, so Jess has been cultivating (as always the dogs are ready to help out.)

So far, the onions, leeks, kale, Swiss chard and lettuce have made there way into the field!

Jeanne came to help too 🙂

We will be having another mini market this Saturday, April 23rd.  This week we are trying the Google Order Form again, with adjustments!

  • You should be able to select “none” if you choose to take an item off your order.
  • The meat now has amounts to choose from.
  • Unfortunately we have no way of automatically sending you a confirmation email, though you should receive a confirmation message once the form has been submitted – you can always email us with changes after it is submitted.
  • We will confirm by email before the mini market.

Please send us your order either by completing the form, or by sending an email byThursday morning, April 21st  – and your feedback on the form too!

Many of you will recall that Jessalynn has taken a new Jersey calf under her wing.  Here is a picture of Cinderelly out learning how to lead (with a little help from Dime).
