First stop -- "Out to Pasture" farm on the Mossman Road.
|Look at this gorgeous German girl! Does she not look like the poster child for healthy farm living?|
|Out to Pasture offered us cute little ducklings, sheep, horses, pet goats and some fantastic meat products. (I took home some chorizo.) They also gifted us with delicious apples to munch on during our walk about.|
|The pumpkins gave a hint of autumn to the scene; and the leaves are just beginning to turn color here.|
|This is Watershed Farms, a fantastic organic/biodynamic farm that sells at my local Farm market.|
And this is owner/operator, Camelia standing next to her living fence. 15 years ago, this was all just a hay field with 3 apple trees. Now, although she certainly doesn't make money, she survives. She's so dedicated to growing good food and giving back to the land and teaching the younger generation to continue the tradition.
After a quick stop for ice cream, we found our last stop of the day,
Indian Garden Farms, owned and operated by the same local family for 158 years.
|They sell at the local farm markets as well as having their own market shop full of apples, pears, peaches; all sorts of veggies and these days, cranberries -- getting ready for Canada's Thanksgiving Day next month.|
Ain't nobody here but us chickens!
