Van's Full!!!

Image
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! If you've placed an order and I am able to fulfill and deliver it you will receive an email from me TOMORROW, Thursday, March 26th. Please DO NOT send funds until I confirm your order.  We will be delivering both Saturday and Sunday! THANK YOU for your orders and interest.  If you don't hear back from me at all, unfortunately we are at capacity. As soon as we grade up this weekends veggies, I will post if we have enough available to do another van delivery for next weekend. Stay tuned!

Please do not get discouraged if we were unable to get an order out to you.  We will have lots more variety and volume coming in a few short weeks!  (Look below at the picture of baby spinach!!) Our availability of storage veggies is quickly finishing up - which is what always happens this time of year! Once May is underway we will have fresh bunched carrots,…

Good news from the farm!

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…
