Buy Local! Buy Fresh!

We received the brand new 2012-14 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! maps a few weeks ago. The BLBF map is released every couple of years through Huron-Perth Farm To Table.

For those who are interested in purchasing from, and supporting, local farmers a digital copy of the map is available, or you can pick one up from us at the farm or the markets.

If you haven’t been to the farm before, look us up and come for a visit.

Market Days

Our set up at the market.

Summer is just about here, and that means market season has already begun. We are at two markets so far, one in Grand Bend (Wednesday mornings) and the other in Exeter (Thursday afternoons). The above photo was taken yesterday in Grand Bend after we had set up our booth. We currently have our Angus beef, Berkshire pork and Katahdin lamb available, as well as maple syrup, spelt flour and peanuts. We also have our preserves and produce at the Exeter market. We hope to see you at the market this summer.

And the pigs are out

This past weekend we let a few of our pigs outside to enjoy the nice, warm weather. The bonus is that they are also great at moving earth. We put them in our garden, which we plowed in the spring, in order to dig up some of the roots that had started to grow and some of the worms and grubs. They’re also able to find a few of the leftover potatoes, carrots, beets and other veggies that were in the garden. Our old horse trailer provides a bit of shelter if it gets windy or rains.
