Lots of news to start off 2017

Another year has come and gone, and in that year we’ve had a lot of changes here at Our Farm CSA. We hosted a lot of travellers on the farm last year, and it was wonderful to meet friendly people from all over the world and teach them about farming while they had a work experience here in eastern Ontario.

We also stressed our way through one of the worst droughts this area has seen since the 1880’s. While we managed to pull through and successfully produce all the vegetables we promised to our CSA customers, and Our Farm CSA is committed to continuing the vegetable CSA, we will now be doing so in partnership with Kate Garvie of Heart Beet Farms. We’re grateful to Katrina Anderson of Kinburn Farms for her strength, perseverance, and amazing talent at vegetable growing, and for being such a wonderful partner for these last three years!┬áSadly, though, we have to announce that Katrina has decided to focus on her beef and pork CSA, and garden design workshops from Kinburn Farms, instead of continuing to partner in the veggie business. Luckily, Kate has stepped in to work with us, and we will actually be expanding the veggie CSA this year. Now you can sign up at our online store or the ‘old fashioned way’ by filling out the

2017 CSA Form

and sending it either by mail or email – and we’re extending you a 2.6% discount if you pay by cash, cheque or e-transfer!

We also started attending farmer’s markets this past year – in Constance Bay and Beaverbrook (Kanata North) – for veggie CSA pickups, retail sales of vegetables, and of course for our delicious lamb. As of now, we’re even able to accept credit card payments at the farm stand!
