The summer season is in it's final stretch. It is unbelievable how quickly time flies.
Our sweet corn is now locally grown thanks to the oppresively hot weather we've just had. Corn loves the heat and you could see it growing from day to day. It is such an easy meal along with burgers and field tomatoes (now also available).
Apples have begun. We have Ginger Gold (sweet) and Paula Red (tart) varieties fresh picked in our market. These early apples need refrigeration to stay crisp. Look for a number of different apple varieties over the next few weeks. Royal Gala and Jersey Macs are coming soon. Regular mac's are usually in early September, Honeycrisp mid to late September.
We're now booking for our fall school tour program for preschoolers to grade 5. Early in the season the focus is on the harvest; pumpkins make for great decorations at Thanksgiving. Book early for the best choice of dates.
With the fall tour season we are also looking for tour instructors. Application forms are available on our employment page. It is a great job for homemakers who love working with children.
