2016 Updates

Lots of new things happening around the farm this year, and it’s about time we shared some of them with you! Because there’s going to be a new farm stand in Beaverbrook (Kanata) starting this summer, we’re happy to announce that we’re moving our Tuesday CSA drop-off to Beaverbrook instead of Kanata Lakes. We’ll be right on a public transit route, and just as close to the 417 for anyone stopping off for their veggies on the way home to a rural area – it won’t take you any more time to hop off the highway, get your veggies, and then get right back on the highway to head home. Because of the infrastructure at that location, we’ll also be able to have freezers on-site so we can offer you a selection of lamb from Our Farm CSA as well as pork and beef from Kinburn Farms, as well as jars of soup stock from Our Farm CSA.

Another new piece of news is that we’re going to be welcoming farm helpers from all over the world to help us bring you a bigger selection of products at more locations – like the farmer’s markets! – and this will also give us the opportunity to pass along to potential new farmers the knowledge we’ve acquired in six growing seasons. We’re looking forward to introducing our CSA members to the new team as they arrive.

And last but not least, we’ve updated this year’s vegetable selection page (although it’s still a work in progress, since seed catalogues are still arriving in the mail and it’s so hard to choose from all the yummy-sounding varieties of vegetables!) so go check it out!

Happy New Year 2016!

While it seemed like it took forever for winter weather to get here, when the snow arrived it really arrived! And now that we can’t see any green stuff outside, it’s time to start thinking about and planning for this year’s growing season.

That’s right, I’m talking about the 2016 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares from Growing CSA, a collaboration between Our Farm CSA ourfarm_logo_64x64  and Kinburn Farms   KinburnFarmsLogo   because we really love working together to feed our community! This year’s sign up sheet is now available, at
