This is what is happening on the farm

Thursday berry picking

July 23, 2014

We are open Thursday, July 24th from 8am to 1pm.

There are lots of raspberries ready to be picked and blueberries by the bucket load. Picking should be good to excellent for both.

It's another Thursday, and another milk pick up day so there may be a ribboned off section in the yard. Lots of parking further into the yard!

See you Thursday!

Tuesday Picking

July 21, 2014

We are open Tuesday, July 22nd from 8am to 1pm.

There are still quite a few raspberries out there and blueberries galore! We have also re-stocked the fridge with water buffalo cheese and there is still plenty of grass fed ground beef and sausages in the freezer.

We will be closed Wednesday and open again Thursday morning.

Monday info

July 20, 2014

We are open Monday, July 21st from 8am to 1pm.

Raspberry picking is still very good and will be for another week or so before the season starts to wind down for the year. The blueberries are just getting warmed up. There are tons of ripe berries, and by the looks of it, it will be a very long season of blueberry picking.

Our calf barn is now at capacity plus one! 9 little ones born, 8 to go! Passed the half way mark! If you would like to have a look at the calves, you are more than welcome to do so. However, in our new area, the littlest calves can squeeze through the railings on the gates and get out of their pens so we have to keep the gate on the end of the barn closed so they don't wander out into the parking area. For the next few days, please do not go into that section of the barn to help keep our babies safe.

Have a great week!

Weekend berry picking

July 18, 2014

We are open Saturday, July 19th from 8am to 1pm.

Picking should be good this weekend for both raspberries and blueberries. The raspberries are at the peak of the season and the blueberries are having an awesome year!

We will be closed Sunday and open again Monday morning.

Have a great weekend!

Friday berry picking

July 17, 2014

We are open Friday, July 18th from 8am to 1pm.

The long stretch of hot, hot days are behind us. The  forcast is for our usual temps to return which means pleasant berry picking weather! Despite the large Thursday crowd, there are still raspberries out there and of course, lots of blueberries. Raspberries may be at or near their peak now and will continue for another couple of weeks. The blueberries look like they will still be going gangbusters well into August!

Busy days!

July 16, 2014

We are open Thursday, July 17th from 8am to 1pm.

The berry patch has had a day off and is ready to be picked again! There are lots of raspberries (unfortunately some with sunburn) and tons of blueberries. Picking should be excellent, especially in the morning. Again, Thursday is buffalo milk pick-up day, depending on what time the truck is scheduled, we may have a section of the yard ribboned off. There is lots of parking further into the yard. For those parking on the road, thank you for making sure your vehicle is all the way off of the road. Our neighbours appreciate it!

We have also added two new water buffalo babies to our herd. Clover was born Wednesday morning and a yet unnammed boy was born Wednesday evening. They are both doing really well. Maybe another one tomorrow?

See you Thursday!

Tuesday update

July 14, 2014

We are open Tuesday, July 15th from 8am to 1pm.

The blueberries are amazing this year! Huge berries and tons of them! The raspberries are struggling a little with the extended hot weather and some are a bit sunburnt (white patches on the berries). They were fairly heavily picked on Monday but if you search, there are almost always more hiding under leaves.

Our beef is now in the freezers at the farm. We have a wide selection of sausages including garlic and parsley, beef and bacon, mild Italian and beef and onion. We also have ground beef, organ meat and dog bones.

We will be closed Wednesday and open again Thursday.

Monday berry info

July 13, 2014

We are open Monday, July 14th from 8am to 1pm.

After having a day off, the picking should be great Monday. Unfortunately, this lovely sunshine has caused some of the raspberries to become sunburnt, which shows up as white patches on the ripe berries.

Our beef is ready! We have frozen ground beef and sausages at the farm. There are a couple of different types of sausages, ask at the farm for more info.

Have a great week!

Weekend berries

July 11, 2014

We are open Saturday, July 12th from 8am to 1pm.

The raspberries have been pretty picked over the last couple of days. There are probably still some ripe ones hiding under leaves but in a couple of days (Monday!) picking should be excellent again.

The blueberries are having a bumper year, so no shortage of berries at the blue end of the patch.

We will be closed Sunday and open again Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Friday berry picking

July 10, 2014

We are open Friday, July 11th from 8am to 1pm.

The raspberries were picked fairly thoroughly on Thursday. You are welcome to search under leaves and in the lower branches and find some more if you like a challenge. Saturday and Monday are likely to be good raspberry picking days. There are still lots and lots of blueberries.

We will have frozen ground beef and sausages available at the farm this coming Monday.
