Greetings

Thank you for all of your support and appetites at our markets throughout the 2021 season. This winter season will be spent improving our farm, and refining our 2022 plan. The main areas of focus are the new greenhouse, advanced irrigation systems, maintenance of everything, and project planning for our next moves (ponds and orchards). 

Looking forward to seeing you in 2022, at the Bowmanville Reko Market (ongoing all winter), the Clarington Farmers Market, and some additional markets to be announced.
