I don't need to tell you that the summer has been hot. Here on the farm not only are we feeling the heat (we've a nice breeze which helps) but so are all our crops.
Our strawberries are done for the season now. We're busy getting the field ready for next year. I always recommend you start inquiring about the strawberry crop around June 15th and this year you would have been 1 week into the season. Strawberries were unusually early this year and some people were too late for the pick your own.
Sweet corn is here. It is from southwestern Ontario at the moment but will soon be from our local fields. These hot nights are making for some very sweet corn.
Special Days in August
We have 2 special event days early August.
Kidsummer is happening on our farm Sunday August 1st. Enjoy treats from the Kidsummer sponsors all put on by Todays Parent magazine.
Sunday August 8th
We are currently finalizing plans to host an educational exhibition from Dairy Farmers Canada.
It will be located on our front lawn area so all visitors to our farm and market are welcome to drop by and learn more about milk and how Canadian farmers work to feed you.
Even if you miss both these days there are always the farm animals to visit and lots to learn on the farm.
