Our neighbours, Larry and Louise Kelly, have some of their tasty chicken and beef available for sale. The chickens are on the large side at approximately 6-8 lbs. They come vacuum packed and cost $5.75/lb + $1.00/bird for the packaging. They are free range and fed organic grain from Homestead. The beef is $9.00/lb. A 30lb box will get you a mix of steaks, stews, hamburger and roasts in small packages. The breed is short-horn, 18 months and grass fed. Anyone interested can contact them directly at

2017 CSA week #14

Hello friends and members,
here is your veggie line-up for this week:

Spaghetti squash is back! We haven't grown this one in a while, but we did a trial last year and they were so nice that we just had to put them in the rotation. This particular variety is one we get from William Dam seeds in southern Ontario called Oranghetti. Unsurprisingly it has striking orange coloured skin and flesh. Spaghetti squash has a neutral flavour so it goes well with any sauce you make for it and can be used as a substitute for actual spaghetti. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Happy Cooking!

Spinach is finally back in the shares! It's a finicky crop and we haven't had a successful one in a while so enjoy this delicious leafy green! On the downside, our potato crop was extremely disappointing due to the wet weather and our inability to get into the field to weed the plants. Hopefully, the winter squash crop will be better. Here are some recipes for next week:
Happy cooking!

It has been a tough growing season for farmers but the veg coming out of our field has continued to look and taste delicious. Our hardworking farm crew deserves all of the credit (and Mother Nature, of course!) We appreciate feedback, so drop us a line if you have comments or suggestions because we are at the halfway point in the CSA, and now is a good time to tell us how we're doing. You'll have a chance to comment anonymously at the end of the season as well.

And since we are halfway through, now is a good time to schedule any missed shares by emailing us with the date you'd like to collect those shares. Any Tuesday/Wednesday between now and Oct 18th are available. You can also "purchase" your missed share through your online account between 2 and 6 days before the intended pickup.
Here are your recipes for the week:
Happy cooking and have a great weekend!
