  We adore trying new things. And, while it’s not only new varieties or crops that excite us (it’s also fun each year to re-connect with old friends/favourite crops), here are some that we can’t wait to grow and harvest this year. Chocolate Sprinkles tomato: Trialing new tomato varieties is an addiction we’re slowly getting a handle on. I mean, you’ll still see a few varieties on this list (and there are others that are new for us this year too that excite us but didn’t make the cut for this list) but for the past few years the crazy […]

Some Exciting Things for 2017!

We’re always excited about trying new things on our farm. Sometimes our attempts are successful and sometimes they really aren’t. But we still like to try. New things sometimes come up because it’s something we personally want. Like lots of lemon balm tea to help support our bodies during stressful times while being super delicious. We want that for ourselves and we think our customers would also like fresh, local, organic lemon balm that they can use for tea. So, we decided to go for it this year and plant a good-sized patch of lemon balm. Or melons. We LOVE […]

Cat and duck 2
They’re here! Forty-three of the cutest little beings imaginable. These are a breed of ducklings called Khaki Campbells. We’re raising them (for the first time ever!) because we want organic, pastured duck eggs. These little guys had big adventures on their first day alive! They left the incubation chamber they cracked themselves out into and got scooped up by an orange-bearded man (Bryan). Bryan then drove them 3 hours home (he picked them up at Wayne Oulton’s Farm – W.G Oulton & Sons – in Windsor, NS). Once he got them home, I (Shannon) ran from the field where I’d […]

We finished our market season on November 1st. We’ll be back at the Dieppe Market in the spring…it’s hard to give an exact date. For the last 2 years, we’ve returned in late April, but we always try to go back as early as possible (the weather, of course, has so much to do with it!). Thank you to our wonderful customers and to our wonderful fellow market vendors! Your support and friendship inspire us to continue making 20 year goals (and beyond!) for our farming careers. We hope to be growing food for you and seeing your sweet faces […]
