Farm blog

Welcome to our farm blog! We're a small family farm located in the heart of the Leeds Grenville, 50 minutes south of Ottawa & Kanata. We grow a variety of vegetables and herbs.

Once a week, we'll be posting updates from around the farm - from what's growing in the fields to helpful storage tips to keep your produce fresh longer and simple recipes to make the most of seasonal ingredients.

Follow along for a glimpse into small-scale organic farming. Get inspired to grow and cook your own seasonal, local food! Let us know in the comments what kind of farm-related topics you'd like us to cover. We're excited to connect with you!
