Years ago when my Gedo (Grandfather) homesteaded the land that I grow most of our veggies on, he had to bring in beautiful top soil onto a sandy bed. Over 60 years later we have the perfect combination of black earth and sand. We are very lucky to have good moisture retention and a great deal of nutrients and minerals in our soil.
To ensure our soil stays healthy and pest-free without the use of chemicals, we rotate our crops through a cycle of fields on our land. Some of these fields are certified organic, and some are in the three-year certification process, which means they need to be documented as chemical-free for a period of three years. We are committed to a pesticide-free, sustainable operation and thank your choice to support local food.
Different vegetables are ready at different times throughout the growing season. Lettuce, dill, baby potatoes etc. are ready in July and root vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, parsnips and onions are ready in September and October. Root vegetables can be ordered in bulk and stored in your cold room for the winter months.
For your convenience, Mandy will work with you to get your product to your community (including Edmonton, Calgary, and Fort McMurray) and arrange transfer to you.
