FARM UPDATES

We smell spring!!  Or we would, if only the snow would go away!  Despite the persistent cold weather, the farm is coming back to life again!  After a winter of hardy root veggies, we are starting to bring in more seasonal products.  At the end of March, we brought in some beautiful pussy willows!  They are great for decorations since they don’t need water and can last for months on end!  If you haven’t yet had the change to snag yourself a bunch and would like to, come visit our stand at the market before the end of April!  Besides that, we are expecting the arrival of onions and some greens in a about a month!  After that, all our products will be reappearing one by one!  In the meantime, make sure to come stock up your fridge with carrot, potatoes, beets, parsnips and squash; they’re not only great for warming up cold stomachs but also for making fresh juices!  Fresh juices are awesome because they are so healthy and easy!

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 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!
