Happy Thanksgiving!

What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving - it's the official kick off of 'Organic Week' running from October 9th to October 16th! Head to www.organicweek.ca for lots of information! Our farm will celebrate by partnering with The Big Carrot on Saturday, October 16th from 2pm - 4pm at the 'Carrot for a meet and greet where Ben and I will be serving our seasonal coleslaw on our edible cabbage plates. So come on out to The Big Carrot and meet the farmers that grow your food! ;) For more information about The Big Carrot grocery store and so much more head to: www.thebigcarrot.ca



Around the farm is busy and bountiful. Cute pie pumpkins, squash & sweet potatoes are seasonal favourites and our first harvest of brussel sprouts starts this week. As we pull our carrots and golden beets from the soil, pick some sweet red peppers & eggplants to roast up for our family Thanksgiving feast, we humbly give thanks to our customers who support us week after week and make what we do possible.
For a great story to read on your holiday Monday about our farm and Schibli's visit this blog: http://topsintoronto.blogspot.com/2010/09/norfolk-county.html. Staffers and volunteers from Evergreen were on farm at the end of September and a staffer by the name of Melissa wrote a great blog about her experience.
A huge 'Happy Thanksgiving!!!' to Smashy who we think about everyday. Gobble, gobble, we miss you!!! ;)
