What's Growing at Edible Acres
We have been growing fruits and vegetables since the first year we moved to our farm in 2007. We were fortunate enough to find our farm, whose previous owners had the same values as we do. They had already begun the journey that we are now continuing. They had planted fruit trees, strawberries, raspberries, currants and asparagus, so we definitely had a running head start. We have continued to nurture and enjoy what they had started, and have been busy planting more. We now have cherries, plums, and peaches, as well as a larger variety of apple and pear trees.
Our gardens also grow every year. Not only does the physical space, but also what we grow. We use only certified organic seed, and use as many heirloom seeds as possible. Every year we enjoy trying different varieties, while also sticking to some of our old favorites. Our goal is to grow beautiful, nutritious and delicious food for our family, friends and neighbours to enjoy.
We use principals of organic farming, and take pride in preserving what mother nature has given us. Our fertilizer is also all produced on the farm, which gives us comfort in knowing exactly what we are adding to the ground.
Some of the vegetables you can expect us to grow include; tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, onions, garlic, beans, peas, cucumbers, summer squash, many varieties of lettuce, herbs, winter squash, radishes and much much more.
