Due to moisture and temperature damage, the quality of our cucumbers and beans were highly unsatisfactory. We apologize to all who purchased these items in the August 13-14 weekend, as we are extremely disappointed to let our loyal customers down. Consequently, we encourage you to send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name and a photo of your spoiled cucumbers or beans. We will record your information so that you can redeem your credits at one of our three market locations within the months of August and September. Again, we are extremely sorry to those who have been affected by the inferior produce quality, and we hope that this unexpected and unfortunate event will not prevent you from revisiting our business in the future.
Can you believe that fall has arrived? The leaves are a multitude of colours and the weather has become cool and breezy. Although we will definitely miss the hot sun and the snowless streets, everyone on the farm is ready to begin harvesting and finishing the successful year. Throughout the summer, everyone has been on the farm, working hard to get some beautiful veggies sprouting, growing, and into the markets! Now, things are starting to slow down, but we are starting to see the long-awaited arrival of some hardy root crops! So, this fall, warm your stomach with some rich, delicious pumpkin, squash and parsnips!
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!
