Picking is now underway at our Greenbank Farm. Jim reports that this years crop is the best he's ever had. The plants are healthy, strong and bursting with berries. The berry's are a good size and very flavourful. The varieties we are picking now are Wendy and Cavendish.
We've had plenty of rain but we see very little stress on the crop. We have not had to spray for insects or disease so far.
Come on out. The picking is great. We are open (weather permitting) Mon to Friday 8 till 8 and Sat, Sunday 8 till 5. We'll be open Tuesday July 1st 8 till 5.
For everyone who can't pick we have fresh picked berries available at both our farms.
Sweet peas are now open for pick your own at our Markham Farm. Along with all the fun stuff to do, our sweet pea patch is ready for picking. Nothing like them for a snack. Our Markham Farm will also be open Tuesday July 1st from 9 till 6 with all our weekend activities happening.
Spending Canada Day on the farm; what a great way to celebrate our country!
