Farm News!

November 2021 update

Our store is closed for the season.  As usual, when we run out of carrots our store traffic drops considerably and in anticipation of that we are now closed during our usual store hours.  Thanks to all who made the trip out to visit our store this fall.  We still have plenty of potatoes and some cabbage; we are happy to take your orders for those and meet at the store at a mutually convenient time.   Please give us a call (see the “Contact Us” page).  Otherwise, we hope to see you at the Wilson Square Farmers Market this summer!  We wish you all a healthy and joyful winter!

November 2021

We are sold out of carrots and onions!  However, we do have cabbage and potatoes available.  See October’s post for store hours and COVID 19 measures; and check out the “Find Us” page for driving directions.  We ask for your patience at the store since Farmer Merle is running it on his own until Nov 20th.  Farmer Jen is on the Vancouver side of the road closures at this point.

To market we go!  We will be attending the Wilson Square Community Market at Pine Centre starting Saturday July 27th.  Our carrots might still need to grow a bit more before we can bring them, but they are nicely weeded and coming along well!  We will have beautiful Romaine lettuces, crispy kohlrabi and bok choy, juicy turnips, and (my favorite) early cabbage.  I never knew how tender and sweet cabbage could be until I tasted the early varieties.  Don’t wait until winter to enjoy cabbage or you will miss out on these sweeties!

March 2019

Spring is finally here!  We are now sold out of carrots and potatoes, and our store is closed for the season.  Thank you to all of our customers for keeping us busy this winter.  We are gearing up for another growing season and will attend as usual the Wilson Square Community Market, which will be located at Pine Centre Mall again this year.  The market starts up in May.  We will update this website with the date we expect to start there as soon as possible.  Please check back for further details.
