Our corn stand is up and running with a soft start as we provide you with some of the finest sweet corn from Norfolk County. You will not be disappointed with the corn while you wait for ours to be ready. We also have Ontario field tomatoes and of course our potatoes. Hope to see you soon! You can visit “What We Offer – At The Door” for our hours of operation and directions to our farm.
Today is National French Fry Day. Why not celebrate by visiting one of our customers who use our potatoes for fresh cut fries? This is a small sampling of some of our wonderful customers who use our potatoes for fresh cut fries and more. Whether you’re in the mood for burgers, fish, tacos, sit down dining, pub fare or stopping in at a food truck we’ve got you covered! You can visit “What We Offer” to learn more about the potatoes and produce we offer to restaurants and the general public.
What’s growing at the farm today? Plenty! All our potatoes plants are in flower which means tubers are forming (which means potatoes are growing.) Did you know that potato plants have different colours flowers depending on the variety of potato that has been planted? The plants with white flowers are our early crop AC Chaleur round white potatoes and the plants with pink flowers are our very popular Yukon Gem potatoes.
The sweet corn got off to a slow start due to very cool ground temperatures this spring, but I think you can see it’s really taking off now. Acres and acres and acres of sweetness coming soon! And last (but never least) the pumpkin seeds have germinated and the plants getting bigger every day. They take some time to get established, but soon they will be enormous plants sprawled all over the field.
So all in all, our crops are growing nicely. You can visit “The Flowers Of Our Farm” to see more pictures of our crops in flower during the summer months.
