There are still spaces left for our 2013 CSA program. Community Supported Agriculture means you are investing in a farming season by reserving a bountiful harvest of the freshest organically grown produce for you and your family. When you secure your harvest it means farmers know how much to plant and what to harvest each week. It is an efficient system for a small community where farmers can’t rely on a working wage through farm gate sales alone. It is a convenient arrangement with many value added perks such as: connecting to your local growing community and meeting with like minded folks who share similar values, enjoying produce that is ripe and ready to be eaten when nature intends, trying new produce that may not always be found at grocery stores, receiving new recipes to broaden your produce pleasure.

The 2013 CSA program will run for 20 weeks. Large boxes are $28/week and small boxes are $18. Contact us for more information and sign up today.

Jollity Farm is thrilled to announce the birth of our first spring kids. Congratulations to Dorothy and Maude, first time moms. It was quite an intriguing phone call home to check in with mom (who was farm sitting for the weekend) when she announced that 4 surprise packages had arrived for us. I was scratching my head and thinking… hmmm, maybe it’s the seed potatoes; when she suggested I stretch my mind a little further outside the postal box. Aha! a surprise of the somewhat premature nature. It seems that two of our goats decided to have their kids in the same evening and about 2-3 weeks early by our predictions. Best laid plans, eh! All kids seem to be strong and healthy now with thanks to Susan our new “Nanny Goat” and neighbours Ellen and Ron for stepping in to help. Seems the boys are already going by the names Stew and Rich but perhaps the highway dept. will be looking for new brush cutters soon and their fate may change!
