Fairmeadow Farm Adventures

A note to update you on my winter CSA, Fairmeadow Farm. I have been immensely enjoying this CSA and its produce. Michelle is such a sweet, positive person and seems to be enjoying every minute of this, despite the unexpected early arrival of winter! Here is a list of what we will be getting this week, all fresh from the farm and 100% organic!:

Brussel Sprouts
Dried Beans
Carrots
Celeriac
Garlic
Spinach
Herbs – parsley, thyme, rosemary
Kale
Leeks
Mesclun – likely the last week of mesclun!
Onions
Potatoes
Winter Radish (watermelon, green-meat and round black spanish types)
Squash

Not a bad haul is it? And quite a variety. I sure have been enjoying the fresh greens this past few weeks. And I have no doubt they helped get me back on my feet after that nasty cold.

I actually have been down to the farm for two pick-ups in a row as we got our wires crosses as to who’s week it was to travel. I didn’t mind at all as I enjoy the excuse to take a Saturday afternoon off and explore the area. Two places I have discovered are Clovermead Apiary for wonderful, fresh honey, and the Pinecroft Green Frog Tea Room, which also has wonderful pottery on sale.

Here are a few photos from Clovermead:

Here is how they dispense the honey. Cool, eh? It is cheaper if you bring your own container:

They also sell a variety of other products, including maple syrup, teas, bee-related knickknacks, and – naturally – beeswax candles:

My batteries died by the time I got to the tea room, you can see a few photos here. I had a really delicious black bean and potato soup, washed down by a huge hot chocolate with whipped cream, all served in their homemade pottery. Their pottery show room is worth a visit in and of itself, and apparently is the oldest pottery studio in Canada.
