Now we begin planning for our first FULL growing season and next year's weekly Summer Bounty CSA Baskets. What seeds should we order? How many? What seedlings will inspire Ottawa's gardeners? What veggies and blooms will win over the hearts and health of even more neighbours and locals? What organic beauties can we layout for you at the Farm Store?
We thought long and hard about what YOU would find meaningful, practical and beautiful to give this holiday season from the farm. We also knew that our intention for the 2020 holiday season is to simplify and create wholeness with what we offer. So, without further ado, here is a preview of... 2020's Christmas Giving from the Farm
For those of you who live close to Ottawa Farm Fresh, did you know.. You have some choice when it comes to what's in your CSA Winter Bounty basket... IF you chose pick up at the farm over home delivery? We like freedom and flexibility and that is why when you sign up for a CSA 6 week, bi-weekly Winter Bounty basket (which starts in November) AND pick up at the farm we will have a 'Mini-Mart" style set-up for your weekly basket. This means that when you recieve your veggies basket for the week you can trade out one...
We're getting ready for winter and we thought you might like to, too! Early Canadian farmers sure had to learn quickly how to survive the harsh winters and make their bountiful summer and fall harvests last. One way they kept food on the table was to learn to store their root vegetables 'just so' to prolong their goodness and flavor. That's exactly what we're doing at Ottawa Farm Fresh (on a bigger scale, of course!) and we thought you might like to know how to do it, too.
