Summer 2016 – Peak Season has arrived!

DSC_3705The tastes of summer are here, along with the heat!

Summer 2016 has brought with it plenty of heat and dry weather, however, we are producing some of the best hot weather crops we have ever seen.

Our strawberry harvest was great this season along with the early summer vegetables. As the season has progressed our herb crops have flourished and the tomatoes are selling well at market. We have added a third hoop house this year, as a result we were able to add new tomato varieties that have been a hit at market.

We were overrun by blueberries this season!
Our main planting of high bush blueberries has matured resulting in a massive harvest.

We are also proud to announce an addition to our herd of Scottish Highland cattle.

Baby Agabus was born on the farm a few weeks ago and is settling in nicely.

He is the second calve that has been born on the farm.

Heading into August the dry weather has been a bit of a concern but we are irrigating daily. This season we have added low pressure portable sprinklers to help speed up this watering process.

We look forward to the remainder of the summer and all great tastes that it is sure to bring!
