Always Learning…

There’s a lot more to this farming business than just planting, waiting and harvesting!

We are always seeking out ways to improve on what we do.  From the seeds we plant; our production methods; and then (my personal favourite…) the ways in which we connect with YOU, our valued friends and customers!

Today’s agenda included not one…but two separate meetings for Robert and I.
He was off to Lanark for a Seed Fair/Information Day.

I, on the other hand, spent my day at the Two Rivers Food Hub in Smiths Falls at OMAFRA‘s ‘Selling Food to Ontario’ Workshop.  Here’s the proof…

(Maybe my next workshop should be “how to manage a half-decent selfie” ?!?!?)

We heard from the experts on topics such as

  • Market Channel Opportunities
  • Costing and Pricing
  • Food Trends
    ….and more…

Keeping on top of the current trends, regulations and Best Management Practices takes time, for sure.  We will be the first to agree though, that it is an essential piece of the local food production puzzle.

Producers  understand the responsibility we have in producing safe, quality food for your (and our) tables.  Canada enjoys one of the safest food supplies in the world, and we are more than happy to do our part to keep it that way!


…..the seed order arrived today!  Spring is one giant step closer now!!
