FARM UPDATES

Can you believe that summer is here?  Everyone is back on the farm, working hard to get some beautiful veggies sprouting, growing, and into the markets!  Although this season started out dry, June and July have been filled with rain and moisture.  This means that this year’s produce will be better than ever!  Now, at the markets, come out to catch our new, fresh produce!  And, best of all, peas is here!

Because we want to focus more on quality production of all our produce, we no longer operate our farm store location.  Furthermore, because we want to guarantee the most perfect vegetables to all our customers, we do not offer any u-pick activities on the farm.  However, along with the Strathcona Farmers’ Market, which we attend on Saturdays’ all year round, we are also at the St. Albert Farmers’ Market (Saturdays, mid-June up to Thanksgiving weekend) and the Callingwood Farmers’ Market (Sundays, July until the end of September).  Besides the farmer’s markets, we also supply the Organic Box, an awesome organic food home delivery program.  To find out more information about the locations where we sell, check out the “Where We Sell” tab!

Our available products for this week are:

  • Arugula

  • Beans
  • Beets
  • Carrots (Orange and Rainbow)

    • Just a reminder: New potatoes are not meant for long term storage because their skin is not yet cured. To properly keep your new potatoes, pat-dry them before storing it in a well-ventilated vessel and keep in a dark cool place.  The ideal temperature for storing new potatoes is 5 to 10 degree Celsius.
  • Radishes
  • Rhubarb
  • Spinach

So, if you’re craving some yummy veggies, come visit us at one of our locations!  If you are unable to make it to any of our locations, consider joining the Organic Box and purchasing our produce through them!  If you want to check their website out, click on their link under the “Where We Sell” tab.

As you might have already noticed, we have updated our website!  It is now mobile friendly so you can check us out on all your devices!  Another cool feature of this website is that you’ll be able to see which products we have each week, so if you’re wanting a specific veggie, you can check if we have it that specific week!  We’re hoping that our new website will make you feel more connected to us, and if you have any feedback, feel free to email us at contact@peasonearth.ca.
