Last of the Organic Apples! New hothouse produce from Roseland! Green Beans from Floralane!

  • Mary from Apple Creek Farms has checked on the Organic Apples and they are still in good shape! We have Spartan and McIntosh Apples available ON SALE this pickup at a great price! The McIntosh seconds are an amazing deal  - you can make organic apple sauce at a fraction of the regular price.

  • We are happy to offer hothouse green beans from Floralane Produce on Monday! Order yours now!
  • Cucumbers, Portobello Mushrooms and St David hydroponic Red Peppers from Roseland Produce are back on our order form! Add some colour to your meals!
  • Kevin has had a good year for Maple Syrup and the trees save some of the best syrup for last! Amber Maple Syrup is available from Snyder Heritage Farms! The first of the sap is the lightest and it darkens through the short season. All grades are now available and from this year's crop!
  • We have sourced Winter Rhubarb from Lennox Farm in Caledon! "In the winter months, Lennox Farm grows rhubarb indoors in forcing sheds. Winter rhubarb produces a tender deep red or pink stalk, which is not as tart as summer rhubarb." Bring on the pies!
  • Krista at Harrington Lane Farms still needs more space in her freezers so Pork Chops and Pork Roasts are still on sale! Bulk Boxes are on sale too!
  • We have lots of greens, including more Spinach from Brenda Knechtel!
  • Hothouse Grape Tomatoes and Beefsteak Tomatoes from Floralane
  • We have confirmed that Well Stocked will have their bone broths available at the next pickup. There are lots of options available including beef, chicken and vegetable broths that have been pressure canned, fresh jarred and frozen.
Brenda Knechtel still has seedling kits available! You will find them in the 'plants' section under 'other'. This year there are two options:
  • Mini Spring Salad Seed Starter Kit
