Winter Markets

The winter markets are better than ever, so it's a great time of the year to reacquaint yourself with the farmers market or come out for the first time! Fresh produce is definitely not as plentiful, but there are a bevy of great storage crops and farmers there that would appreciate your support! Evergreen Brickworks Farmers Market is turning out to be a great one happening every Saturday morning. Come eat, have coffee or hot chocolate, go skating and enjoy many other activities during your shopping experience. This past Saturday the market celebrated Chinese New Year with music and entertainment! I have a feeling, knowing these organizers like I do, more events like this are to follow in the coming weeks! Stay warm, enjoy winter and visit a farmers market soon! If you slip by our tables you will be sure to find Russian Blue Potatoes, Red Gold Potatoes, Buttery Fingerlings,  Leeks, Celeriac, Garlic,  huge Cabbages, tubs of frozen Sweet, Sweet Corn, Perogies, Cabbage Rolls and comin…

The Farm's Affordable Facelift!

It is due time to update and get a little fresher around here!  Over the next few months at the markets and online we are getting a facelift!  Our much loved original farm website created in 2004 is being retired and a new one will be taking it's place. Gone will be our also much loved generic logo as well and replaced by an exciting new one, which will essentially become our 'brand'. I am pleased to share a taste right now of our new image:

The new logo itself though simple represents our farm quite well.  I tend to think of water drops, irrigation, movement, growth, change, corn stalks, cabbage, even brussel spouts when I look at it. Plus it's hard to miss all those various 'S's within it!
For other farmer's wishing to brand themselves or brush up their image, I have advice to share: Especially to all you FarmStart farmers that I am SO PROUD of  for getting your certification for organic production! A huge congratulations! You do not have to get fancy.  …
