We take pride in our gardens
It is our philosophy not to use chemical fertilizers or pesticides, choosing instead to use a mixture of compost and a lot of elbow grease.
In 2018 we had a very tasty year with 150 varieties of Tomatoes (most of them heritage.) In 2019 we have increased that number to around 165, and added more determinant varieties to meet the demand for canning tomatoes.
on the 2 acres of land we rent from Maple Hill Farm who will partner up with us on Sorghum (a tasty, high protein, gluten free grain), and barley along with a few other new surprises.
New vegetables for 2019: Include beets, carrots, spinach and Swiss chard along with 4 varieties of cabbage and dry cooking beans (kidney, black, saddle & soldier) to be harvested late in the season and will be available all winter. We have also partnered up with Maple Hill Farms to provide Sorghum (a tasty, high protein, gluten free grain), and a few other surprises.
Returning vegetables for 2019: Include 6 types Egg Plants, Sweet & Hot Peppers, Peas & Beans, Kale, Brussel Sprouts, and so many Summer & Winter squashes it will make your eyes pop. 7 Varieties of potato, and Horseradish which should be ready for harvest this year. Fresh herbs and a few things I’m sure I forgot to add to this list.
In fruit we have Rhubarb, Black Raspberries, Yellow Raspberries, Ground Cherries & Black Berries.
It’s a lot of produce, and will be a handful to manage. For the things we have not listed, we depend on a network of local farms to fill in the gaps. We bring in local Strawberries from the beginning of June all the way to October, Raspberries from July to September, as well as Wild and Domestic Blueberries from July to September. We also have a driver that goes to the Niagara Region 3 times per week to bring back tree-ripened fruits as they come into season: Cherries, Plums, Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines, and Pears. Corn starts the middle of July and is brought in fresh-picked each morning. We have an organic supply of Carrots & Beets, and a regular supply of Onions, Broccoli, Cauliflower, and all the salad fixings you could imagine throughout the entire growing season.
Our pledge to you, our customers, is to provide you with the best produce available, with priority being chemical free, and naturally grown. Some of the farms we deal with are not organic, but they are conscientious of the environment and use fertilizer and pesticides only when necessary.
