WOW, January flew by like one of the busy summer months!  One would think January would be a slow month on the farm but not so.  We kicked the year off doing inventory.  It took us longer than most years as this is also a good time for our staff to spend time with their families, but we finish...

Our guests always ask me what my favourite pie is and although we make many wonderful pies throughout the year, I always look forward to the New Year’s Pie as it is one of my favourites.

This was written many, many years ago by an unknown author.  The results are just as good today as it was th...

Giving Tuesday is a perfect day to write about what it’s like to be a business in our community.  We love the community we live in, many of our staff live in the area and many of our summer student staff go to University and College here as well.  We love to serve you, giving our best every da...

If you read along regularly, you will have noticed a gap from the last blog.  All farmer’s need a break after harvest and we have been enjoying a lovely one! We are feeling refreshed and ready to be back at work, bringing you a magical Christmas holiday season.  

The market is dressed up,...

As seasons come and go this is my second favourite! Instead of looking out my window onto the red berry fields I now see fields of orange, pumpkins of many sizes and shapes as well as squash and gourds.

Our seasonal staff is back to school and we are semi rested, rearranged and are enjoying a s...

Time to party!  We love to celebrate our staff and the harvest season.  Many of our summer staff are University and grade 11 and 12 students who are just now beginning to move back into their dorms across the country or close to home. That is the reason for us to hold the staff appreciation BB...

Lights, Camera, Action here comes Hallmark! “FALLING FOR VERMONT” begins setting up today for a week of filming at the farm. The energy they bring is so much fun. Michael, who has directed and produced 2 previous movies at the farm is the writer, and producer of this film, so it feels like a f...

Alf and I never would have thought or dreamed that we would receive such a prestigious award for our wines when we made the decision to add value to our berries 4 years ago and expand our farm to include a winery.  Last week we received a congratulatory email and a beautiful hand blown glass t...

The busiest time on the farm is when June and Everbearing Strawberries are at their peak of harvest and Raspberries say hello! If you were at the farm last weekend you would have noticed this “Berry Crescendo” Each year we experience this together - staff, guest and grower alike. I think we al...

I would not be able to work the long hours of our harvest season if it wasn’t for the strong work ethic my Dad modelled for me as I was growing up. He worked 3 jobs, his day job, along with stocking shelves in a grocery store and on weekends in a fast food restaurant, to put food on the table...

After weeks of preparing we are ALMOST ready to open the farm gate!   Every area of the farm is stocked to the nines with your favorite farm products.  The strawberries are ripening on time this year, unlike last year when they surprised us all a month early. My husband Alf brought me 3 beauti...

This Sunday we are honored to serve Mom’s, Grandma’s and their families at our annual Mother’s Day Waffle event.  It is very fun to welcome them as they enter, coiffed, dressed beautifully and wearing their biggest smile of the year!

As a Mother of 6 and a Grandmother of 3, I get to absorb all...

This is an exciting time of year, the pace is somewhat “normal” at least what we feel “normal” to be. We have planned our farm events for the year, made new brochures and cards to ensure you receive the information on line as well as while you are at the farm visiting us. Heather has captured...

What an honour to make a cake for one of our long time guests of the farm, Henry Kuyper’s for his 100th birthday celebration on Saturday. Nancy, our kitchen manager, put love and care into this special cake, giving it a nursery feel with beautiful roses and flowers representing Henry’s life in...
