Edible Flowers and spray free bouquets
They change with the season, but we are lucky to have edible flowers from two of our growers. The flowers from Garden Party and Nith Valley are all safe to eat whether you make them into tea or add them to a salad. The lovely bouquets from Garden Party are not sprayed, so you can enjoy them in your home!
Strawberry sizes
I'm re-posting from previous years as the sizing on berries and cherries is always so confusing.

  • A pint is half a quart (12 pints = 6 quarts = 1 flat)
  • A dry quart is a bit smaller than a litre (2 pints = 1 quart = 1.1 Litres) according to
  • Dry quarts and liquid quarts measure differently
  • We've been calling the  darker green, more sturdy looking plastic baskets with rounded corners litres, but they are quarts and you are getting 1.1 Litre or product, the paper boxes are pints and there are also smaller paper bakets which are half pints
  • Farmers are generous and tend to top up whatever container they are using.
And one other thing - Why isn't there a big discount for buying a flat? Well... it takes a while to fill up one pint and twelve times as long to fill the whole flat (of 12 pints). We let the farmers decide the prices that pay them for the work they do! 
Fruit from Niagara: An update from Torrie at Warner's Farm
Torrie emailed us to say "I am hoping to start cherries, gooseberries, raspberries, mulberries July 6-8. Apricots about the middle of the month, peaches and plums the end of July." We hope you are as happy as we are to read this!
