If you’re unfamiliar with our harvest and sales schedule you may find the following information helpful because we do things a little differently at our farm.
We grow very early spring crops which we sell for the months of April and May. Once those crops are finished we take a short break, catch our breath and get our farm ready for all our summer crops. We then return to the market in early or mid July with all that fantastic summer produce which includes tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, garlic, onions, Swiss chard, pickling cukes, herbs, beans and plums. Often we will also have summer and fall crops of greens such as kale and spinach as well.
We are now finished our 2020 season and will be back at the market in April 2021
We sell our produce directly to the consumer at the Kelowna Farmers and Crafters Market which runs from April through till the end of October.
Stop by our booth to say hello and check out our fresh picked selection for the day. Our produce selection changes with the seasons so you never know what tasty surprises you might find on our market table.
Our booth is along Springfield Road under the trees.
Gourds are a natural product and perfect for crafting birdhouses, ornaments, and other projects. Each gourd is unique and because the growing and drying process creates varied shapes, sizes, textures and patterns, you will find no two gourds alike. From the time it is planted, grown and then dried, it can take up to one year for a gourd to be ready for crafting.
All the images on our gourds are drawn on by hand then burned directly into the gourd by a technique called pyrography. We use high quality paints and dyes to highlight the designs and finish them off with varnishes and waxes to ensure they are protected.
