Going ahead into the month of September, we will be open afternoons only, Tuesdays to Sundays from 12pm to 4pm. Mondays we will be closed. We will have our Pick Your Own hours in the afternoon as well.
The ripening in our Pickling Cucumber Patch is WELL below our expectations 🙁 So we will be holding off on our pick this afternoon. We’ll leave the field to ripen again tomorrow and look at picking Thursday afternoon in the cucumbers. Our apologies – this relationship with Mother Nature can be a tricky one!!
We will have light picking in the sugar snap peas and light picking in the yellow and green beans.
Expected Produce In the Farm Store Tuesday: Sweet Corn! Slicing cucumbers, eggplants, new potatoes, beets, 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 HOPEFULLY be available!
The Amazing Corn Maze is now open to explore (during Farm hours)! $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 really 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.
