FARM UPDATES

Our winters may be long and harsh, but our beautiful summers definitely make up for them!  Everyone at the farm is very busy, making sure that the vegetables are tended to so that they can grow and be brought to the markets!  Along with the new veggies that we have, we still have some hardy winter vegetables available, so make sure to grab some before they are all out of stock!

As some of your may know, the Sturgeon County area experienced a severe hailstorm on June 27.  Due to this, a substantial portion of our vegetables were damaged or marred.  Although we lost a large amount of our crop, we were fortunately left with enough to provide our markets with.  Still, some vegetables being sold may exhibit slight damage, and we ask that our customers be understanding of the situation.  However, if you ever find that the damage renders the vegetable inedible or unrecognizable, please contact us and we will more than willingly replace or reimburse your purchase.

This year, we will not be attending Callingwood Farmers’ Market.  However, we are at the Strathcona Farmers’ Market, which we attend on Saturdays’ all year round, and at the St. Albert Farmers’ Market (Saturdays, mid-June up to Thanksgiving weekend).  Besides the farmer’s markets, we also supply Spuds Fresh and Local Groceries, Blush Lane Organic Market and Grapevine Deli in St. Albert.  To find out more information about the locations where we sell, check out the “Where We Sell” tab!

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 our best vegetables to all our customers, we do not offer any u-pick activities on the farm.  However, the farmers’ markets are also just as fun and family-friendly, so we encourage you to come visit us there!

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.

Once again, thank you for all your support, and we hope to see you soon!
