Asparagus

This marks the start of the new growing season. Asparagus is grown on our farm and harvested daily from April 23rd to June 21st (Weather dependant). We then treat the cut stems as you would cut flowers, keeping them in water until the time you buy them. This prevents the woody, stringy, product you may buy elsewhere.

Apricots

It comes as a surprise to a lot of people that Apricots grow in this country. On the farm we grow three varieties and due to the slow maturing in our climate they are sweet and juicy.
