And going ahead into the month of September, we will be open afternoons only, Tuesdays to Sundays from 12pm to 4pm. We will have our Pick Your Own hours in the afternoon as well.
On Tuesday afternoon, our cucumber patch will be closed for ripening (it just didn’t ripen up as much as we had hoped), but your are welcome to pick yellow and green beans. Peas won’t be ready for picking until the end of the week
Expected Produce In the Farm Store Tuesday: Our scrumptious Sweet Corn! Wild Blueberries, Slicing cucumbers, eggplants, new potatoes, beets, garden and greenhouse tomatoes, carrots, garlic, dill weed, summer squash and zucchini, an excellent supply of all colours of beans and a nice ass’t of garden veggies now. Fresh Picked pickling cucumbers will not be available.
The Amazing Corn Maze is now open to explore! $1 from each $5 (HST included) admission is donated to the United Way of Thunder Bay. Just check in with our staff in the Farm Store to pay your admission and to let us know you’ll be heading into the maze.
There is some construction happening on Hwy 130, especially if you head out to the farm from Hwy 11/17 or Arthur Street. We suggest taking Hwy 61 South (towards the US border) to Hwy 130. Turn right onto Hwy 130. Turn left onto Candy Mountain Drive and we’re just down the road on your right hand side.
At the farm we accept debit, VISA and Mastercard, however, as a small business, we sure do appreciate it when you are able to use cash or debit.
For those of you looking for information on the Little Red Barn: We are certainly hoping there will be enough yield this year to be at the Little Red Barn with our VEGGIES including peas, beans, carrots, beets, potatoes and eventually sweet corn and cucumbers. At this point, though, it doesn’t look like we’ll be starting at the Little Red Barn until we get into the Sweet Corn season. But do keep in touch, because if things change we will definitely post the information here on our Farm Updates page and have it on our info line as well: 475 5181
We know your furry family members love to take a drive out to the country, however, due to health and safety concerns for both humans and our farm animals, we cannot have any pets in the Pick Your Own fields, the Farm Store, the Greenhouse or the Children’s Play Area. We appreciate your understanding.
