What’s Happening at the Farm?

We are busy selling our produce year round at the starthcona Farmers’ Market. Janelle has finished ordering our plants for the bedding plant season, did you know they start growing some of our lovely flowering plants in December?! Aaron is busy clearing snow from the yard, repairing equipment, and putting together the 2013 vegetable seed order! Krystal is busy putting together information for our upcoming CSA and preparing the vegetables for the market. Work never ends here at the farm, and March is soon approaching, when we get to fire up the greenhouses.
