The beginning of the school year signifies to us here on the farm that fall has arrived. The corn stalks are cut for displays, pumpkins are ripening and adding colour to our courtyard and the garden mums have arrived. It is such a colourful time of year.
Our Spring Blossom Honey (also known as Strawberry Blossom ) is selling out. David and Joyce, our beekeepers have prepared the hives to enable them to harvest our Wildflower honey. This should be available in our market by the end of September. Both honeys have awesome flavour and are unheated and unfiltered (raw).
David and Joyce take great care in minding the hives keeping the bees healthy and happy. You can see the bees at work at the north end of our Barnyard Adventure area. Careful that you stay out of the bees flight path, they are very busy getting ready for winter.
Ginger gold are coming to an end, Macintosh have arrived and there will be more varieties as the season progresses. The cool summer has delayed the apples by about one week.
Bushels of ripe tomatoes are in very short supply this season due to the slowness of their ripening with the cool nights. Having 2 weeks of sunshine is helping but demand far outweighs supply and you will see this reflected in increased cost.
October Fall Festival
will be beginning the first weekend in October and continue each weekend until November 1st. We're busy getting the farm ready for lots of fall fun.
Come on out while the farm is quieter and enjoy the fine weather. The corn maze is open and challenging, our Enchanted Forest has reopened and Owen our lamb is looking forward to seeing you on his weekend walks with our farm educator.
There's an abundance of colour you can take home to make your home look fabulous for the fall.
We are currently taking orders for fresh, free range, grain fed turkeys for Thanksgiving. Book yours now so you won't be disappointed. Thanksgiving will be here quicker than you think.
