New Surroundings

Well it has been an extraordinarily long time since anyone has written on the blog. Although we would love to have been writing lots has been going on for the farm. First off the farm has moved (we moved with it of course). Just down the road a little into St.Catharines on Lakeshore Rd. It was a pretty exciting move as it means that we now own some land ( have had previously been renting). This newly acquired land was an orchard (key word was as it has now been torn down). In its place there is nothing just a big piece of open land that will be the new home for our vegetables.
While we are now all moved over to the new farm we started a new project a barn. It is not a barn in the traditional sense it is a prefab structure. I shall get a picture of it. They are putting it together as I type. It purpose will be that of a barn though housing all our tractors and other farm stuff.

While all this has been going on we have of course also been running our CSA program. We wrapped up summer a few weeks ago and have now begun our winter one (this is week two). Interested in enjoying some winter veggies stop by the farm on Tuesday 3:30-6 and Saturdays 12:00-3:00 and you too could enjoy some great local food.
Right now we have:
and Walnuts
