We have had a great first full season here at Fiddle Foot Farm and are now enjoying the fall bounty of vegetables.  We still plan on offering a Winter CSA in future years, but this requires a large root cellar, which we were not able to construct this season. As a result, we will not be able to store vegetables into the winter months.

If you are feeling the natural urge at this time of year to stow away food for the fall and winter and your local Farmers’ Market has ended, you are in luck! Here at Fiddle Foot Farm, there are still plenty of delicious vegetables growing in our gardens. We just need to find a way of getting these vegetables to you!

Our Fall Harvest Baskets is a way to extend the market season both for you and for us.  Fall Harvest Baskets are different from our CSA program in that you can order just one if that is all that you need.  There is no commitment to pick up a basket each week.  Place an order for a basket for whenever you would like one.

WHEN? Baskets will be available on Tuesdays and Saturdays starting Oct 27th until the supply runs out!  Orders must be placed at least two days before pick-up, but the sooner the better to give us a sense of demand.  We will send this email weekly as a reminder.

CSA Registration is Open

Prior to our move, as many of you know,  we provided CSA shares from 2008 – 2010 at Whole Village Farm (near Orangeville). Last season we took a year off from running the CSA in order to prepare for the 2012 season.  We are both very excited to be developing Fiddle Foot Farm over the coming years in order to continue providing our local communities with a diversity of healthy and sustainable food choices.  We are  looking forward to reconnecting with past CSA members and making new connections with those we have met since our move.

Looking out at the white landscape and falling snow, imagining CSA baskets filled with the colours and tastes of mid-summer…
