Happy Spring!

It is almost hard to believe that spring is finally here. The mountains of snow are slowly starting to melt (yesterday I found a “to do list” from January in a snowbank: some of the items are still to be done…) and the first signs of life have appeared in the greenhouse. This weekend we’ll […]

April Showers

Spring is finally starting to take shape here on the farm.  I am happy to see that the progress that we made in our first year has laid a good foundation for this year.  The greenhouse is full of seedlings ready to be planted and the fields are plowed from the fall.  The rains have […]

Maple in the County

This past weekend (March 23rd  & 24th) was the annual Maple in the County event.  While Fiddlehead Farm hasn’t yet gotten around to establishing its sugar bush I took the opportunity to do something rare: I got off the farm and did some touring around the county.  Heather will attest to the fact that I […]

Summer & Fall

August 22, 2012 We trust everyone is enjoying the return of salad greens; we definitely are here at the farm! We’ve been having cooler mornings out in the county, which is definitely good for our greens. We’re seeing a lot of recovery in our kale.  It was particularly hard-hit by flea beetles for most of […]

Summer Fun

It has been some time since we added a posting here.  The funny thing is that we do write a newletter for our CSA Members each week.  In the interests of bringing you up to date here are our new letters to date and I’ll be adding the new ones as we go from now […]

In The Garden

In the garden indeed – that’s where we’ve been the past month and a bit. Some things of note that have occurred around the farm during this time; our interns, Vanessa and Tyler, have arrived, as well as bees, laying hens and a steady supply of milk from Bella the goat. We’ve seen the first […]

Restorations, WWOOFers, and CSAs

One of the joys of moving into an old farm is the odd bits of equipment that have been left behind from ages past.  The effort of uncovering and evaluating the equipment can be a time consuming one.  If you can find some helpers the work goes so much more smoothly. Luckily enough for Fiddlehead […]

Seedy Saturday

The is nothing quite like a seed gathering to put a little fire under you to get rolling with the garden prep work.  Yesterday was Picton’s annual Seedy Saturday.  For those of you who might not be totally familiar with this type of an event I’ll share a little.  Seedy Saturdays are events held across […]

Positive Insanity

Yes, it is now just over a week since we first cracked the doors open here at Fiddlehead Farm.  The changes over this period have been quite dramatic.  I’ve managed to unpack a large number of my boxes and I’ve actually found my desk underneath it all!  Slowly the place is starting to feel more […]

We are here!

With a turn of the key we unlocked the side door to our now present home, place of work, and new life project.  At roughly 16h00 on January 31st we took residency at 978 Fish Lake Road in the Demorestville area in Prince Edward County, Ontario.  The turning of that key marked the end of […]
