Well, we had a good crowd out in the raspberries Thursday evening SO our raspberry patch will be firmly CLOSED FOR RIPENING on Friday. We’ll have raspberry picking available on Saturday morning at 9am.
BUT, for picking Friday morning from 9am to 12pm, we will have good pea picking available (both shelling and sugar snap) and good picking in the yellow and green beans.
The Farm Store is open from 9am to 4pm. Fresh Picked raspberries will not be available this year (due to that decreased yield), but will have fresh picked peas both shelling and sugar snap, new potatoes, beans, baby beets, baby carrots, wild chanterelle mushrooms and an ass’t of garden veggies in the Farm Store.
The pickling cucumber season could start in about 3 days or less – in fact we may have some light picking available during the weekend- I’ll have confirmation on that by the end of the day here on Friday.
Our Sweet Corn season will start likely the 3rd week of August.
Due to food safety concerns, unfortunately pets aren’t allowed into the pick your own fields or any of the buildings on site and we do appreciate your understanding on that matter.
At the farm we accept debit, credit card, personal cheque and cash, of course. But as a small business, we sure do appreciate when you are able to use cash or personal cheque to help us avoid those pesky credit card and debit fees.
Due to the rain we had here during the day yesterday, we won’t have enough produce harvested to be able to come into the Little Red Barn on Friday – our apologies. But you CAN find us on Saturday morning at the Thunder Bay Country Market. During the CLE the Thunder Bay Country Market is located at the Moose Hall on Fort William Road and runs from 8am to 1pm.
