Farmers’ Market

  We’re so excited to be returning to the Dieppe Market this weekend – April 28th! It’s been a great winter for us – filled with learning at farming conferences, feeding the wood-stove to keep warm, and visioning all the exciting things we hope to do on this small farm! Crop planning and seed-ordering went fairly smoothly for us this year. We’ve done so much trialing over the years of different varieties of each crop, we’ve noticed which ones seem to do best with our unique conditions and preferences.

Well, it’s hard to believe (except when our fingertips were freezing last weekend) that this coming Saturday (Oct.22nd) is our last day of market for the year!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for such a great market season!!! We’ll be attending lots of farming […]

Maritime Fresh

We have really been enjoying the farmers’ markets so far this season! We started going to the Hubbards Barn market on May 9th and the Lunenburg market on May 19th. Both markets are really well organized and have a great market manager (actually the same market manager, Ashley Marlin). The customers have been so great and interesting to chat with. And all the other vendors are SO supportive of us and share their knowledge and even let us know about properties coming up for sale! It has been so nice to go to the market and feel a sense of […]
