Farm Art

A nice Emily Carr student, Daisy, put together this awesome CSA graphic depicting Skeeter Farm's CSA as well as Abundant Acres (Abby) and Glorious Organics (Aldergrove) CSA programs.

We like very much. Thanks Daisy!

Still looking for a CSA program?

Two great new programs to tell you folks about...

Earth Apple Farm Potato CSA


Simple Roots Farm

are two new farms who have started up at the Incubator Farm at the Bakerview EcoDairy in Abbotsford.

We love their websites (hmmm...perhaps we should make one?) and the fact that there are more and more new farmers starting up every year!

Spring is in the Air!

I know I am a few days early to be saying this, but today at the farm, it really did feel like it. The fresh smell from a recent night's rain, the bright sun and soft breeze was very welcome as I was standing on the soft soil.

Let's face it. Spring for a farmer is pretty exciting! While soil is not yet being worked, lots of things are on the go. Summer market dates are now set, CSA shares are selling out (we have just one left!), and seedlings are started. Onions, leeks, peppers, and herbs are growing in trays, our seed potatoes are sprouting, and our garlic, our precious garlic, is on its way.

Amy and I have got a few things to get done out in the field in the new few weeks, and this lovely weather will definitely help us. Between finishing hoophouse construction and prepping soil, Spring, we have been waiting for you.

Just look at that young Chesnok Red!
