Home Delivery in Mississauga, Etobicoke, West/East - Downtown Toronto. Just south of the 401 please :)Week 2 of home delivery! During these strange and scary times, we are really looking at a worse case scenario which could possibly be that farmers markets don't open for the duration of the season. Beginning in MAY we will have fresh bunches of Carrots, Radish, Spinach, Lettuces, fresh bunches of local Kale too! JUNE we have an entire 2 acre patch of organic Strawberries! Currently for now we have our storage staples and prepared foods. I encourage everyone to STAY CONNECTED.

Wow.  I'm really overwhelmed in a great way.  I was flooded with emails and orders and now our van is full for deliveries this weekend!

Please DO NOT send funds until I confirm your order.  We will be delivering both Saturday and Sunday!

Good news from the farm!

Image
We carry on in the greenhouses and are getting lots of crops seeded! Sadie is almost 7, and thou her birthday party this weekend has to be 'postponed' she will still have a party with her family! She's a great help in the greenhouse this year. I feel very fortunate we have the farm so the kids are able to get out and about and keep themselves totally preoccupied with farm play while in 'isolation'. The farmer's markets remain closed and we keep a close eye on how this Covid situation plays out. We are happy to social distance and sell direct from the farm in a very responsible fashion.  We are offering veggie pickups and some deliveries as well.  Email me at jb@sosnickiorganics.com if you need a decent amount of potatoes, carrots, onions, beets, cabbage, and we still have a few perogies and cabbabe rolls! We are crafting more raw sauerkraut as well.
I'm happy to report our workers will be arriving to work on the farm this year, as they are considered essen…

*Covid-19* and our farm.

Like everyone else right now we are experiencing a range of emotions. Worry and fear of the unknown is weighing heavily. Our migrant workers were set to come April 3rd and thats not happening. The Farmers Markets are closed without an idea of when public gatherings will be less risky and they will once again be allowed. Trying to produce good organic local food which should be a #1 essential service just got a lot more difficult. ***THE POSITIVE!*** BUT what do we do when the going gets tough? We tough Sosnicki's get going! At this point we usually have very little in the way of storage crops and we usually stop going to markets anyhow to concentrate on growing our new seasons veggie plants. We are definitely full speed a head in the greenhouses! The farm is a slow grinding wheel that doesn't just stop! We carry on :) Folks have been buying direct from the farm, a new health store (Easy Health Food - Bloor/Lansdowne) even came down to load her car full of veggies! While we pract…

Contemplating the new 2020 season!

I cleaned off my greenhouse desk today and went through old seeds. Set up Ben's chair, where he likes to sit beside me as we plan out what to plant and when.  Or have a cold drink while we bask in the sun (coming soon - a bit cold in there right now!). It's an exciting time of year where we reflect on the previous season and shake things up and always try new things! I will have a lot of time to concentrate on the fields and our own farm this spring - as I am not growing wholesale plants for Evergreen Garden Market this year.  Not that I didn't love doing it - it's just not profitable enough when I have to hire extra hands while I'm raising small babes.  Whole other story when you can do most everything yourself.  So until my kids are older, we won't have our plants there.  As soon as we are able - we WILL bring plants to the farmers markets!! Retail sales are always best for small farms like ours anyways.

Another year or two yet for this glass beast until we …
