We are raising chickens again this year (2018)!
We raise Cornish Cross chickens. For the first three weeks of their life the chicks are kept inside a warm, clean building dedicated specifically to brooding chicks. They are then moved outdoors where they are moved to fresh pasture everyday. We give our chickens high quality organic chicken feed from Homestead Organics. This feed contains soy.
We require a $10 deposit per bird to reserve your chickens. They will be ready in the middle of September. Details for pick up will be communicated closer to the processing date.
We plant about 5000 cloves of garlic every year, of 10 different varieties. Each variety has a different hotness, flavour, size, and storage capacity. If you haven’t tried locally grown garlic before then you will be in for a treat when you try some of ours! Our garlic is also suited to plant in a home garden.
Garlic is available starting in the middle of August and depending on how fast we sell out up until January.
We also make beautiful garlic braids and bunches — the perfect gift for garlic lovers! Garlic stores extremely well in a braid.
Most of our garlic gets sold at the Carp Garlic Festival (check out www.carpfarmersmarket.ca) and the Toronto Garlic Festival (check out www.TorontoGarlicFestival.ca). It is also available to order straight from the farm.
