Fall is almost officially here, it sure feels like it. Each year it seems that our favorite apple is ready so late in the season but apple season is now upon us. We’re now finished with the early apples – Paula Red, Ginger Gold and Jersey Mac. The fall apples have begun. Macintosh, Cortland and Royal Gala are available fresh picked in our market. Their crunch and flavour have been worth waiting for.
We’ll soon have Honey Crisp, Empire, Mutsu and more – up to 10 varieties coming soon.
Time flies and it seems faster in the fall when so much is happening. Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks away and will be here in the blink of an eye. Order your free range, grain fed turkey soon. We’ve got our order book ready in the market.
Fall is Fun on the Farm
The cool weather comes and everyone is out visiting the farm. You’ll find some new additions this fall. Our tricycle track now has adult size trikes for Moms, Dads, Grandparents … to join the kids riding around the track. They really do make you feel like a kid again.
We also have some kid size pedal karts for up to 7 year olds so they can join in the races around the speedway.
Our straw maze is being revised and will be ready soon, more challenging than ever. Come and join us for some fall fun. Our corn maze is back and is a fun challenge for all ages.
Tomatoes, Tomatoes and more Tomatoes
Seems there is a theme of bounty from the land. Our tomato crop has been fantastic this year and now is the time to enjoy them as well as preserve some for winter. The peak of the crop is here. The quality is fantastic and the flavour amazing – don’t delay, who knows when frost will come and put the field to rest.
Join our fall farm team
We still have some positions open for outgoing, energetic people who would like to join us in presenting our farm to the public. If you enjoy working with the public and are looking for short term work then go to our employment page and come in for a visit. We’d love to talk to you. Please bring 2 references with you.
Is right around the corner, literally. Always the weekend before Thanksgiving this 4 day fair is one of the biggest in Ontario and through the efforts of many volunteers from the community is a fair to be proud of. This will be our 22nd year(at least) of having a booth at the fair. Come visit us, we’re at the east gate.
