Chary Produce and the War of 1812 Posted on Jul 14, 2012

On the weekend of July 7, 2012 our farm was included in a historical tour for the bicenntenial of the War of 1812.
 
The last battle of the this war took place just down the hill from our farm at Malcolm's Mill.  A dozen people or so stopped by to visit the site of our old house from that era - it is thought that the commanding officers had met to plan the battle in this house.  This house is currently being reconstructed at the Westfield Heritage Village.  For more information on the bicenntenial go to http://www.grandriver1812.ca.

 

Appreciating our Workers Posted on Jul 10, 2012

July 7 marked the thirtieth anniversary of two of our seasonal workers.  Pictured here is "Shorty" with our display on the front lawn of the farm.  We are grateful and priviliged to be able to have our seasonal workers here every year - we could not carry on our business without them.  We have five workers that have been with us for over 25 years each - they feel like family when they return in the spring!

Spring 2012 - Season off to a great start Posted on Apr 5, 2012

Our planting season is off to a fine start, after a very confusing spring!  The warm weather in March got everyone thinking it would be an exceptionally early year, but the frost in April soon put things back on schedule for us.  We expect our crops to be ready as always – starting with zucchini in early June, followed by dill cucumbers in late June.  Sweet corn will be ready in early July!  Tomatoes and peppers will be available in late July.  Stop by our market & taste the difference!
