Currant Update 2018

Currant Update 2018

The outside temperature just hit 32 degrees Celsius and summer has officially arrived at the farm.

Spring has been very welcomed this year; cool with lots of moisture. The black currant bushes have responded well and are looking fruit laden. 

The good news is there should be plenty of product available after July 20. Harvest will likely begin between July 9-12 bearing any natural disaster. Berry size seems very large and we will be adding a new variety this year called Blackcomb. At this point it seems very promising and is very upright.

  1. we would like to buy 10or 20 pounds of your
    fresh black currents , frozen would be acceptable
    we live in burlington Ont, and would lioke to arrange a time when we could come to your farm and pick them up please ?

    1. I will leave a 20 lb pail in the freezer in our little retail outlet. We don’t really have hours as we operate on a self-serve basis. Everyone just comes and helps themselves and there is a small pail to leave payment.
      Thanks
