Harvestin’ the County is a program designed to support and show appreciation for our farmers and agricultural community. We are inviting you, residents and visitors alike, to show your support by buying as much locally grown produce as possible throughout the year.

 

Imagine the difference we could make if we all put something
“County Grown” into every one of the more than 27,000,000 meals a year we consume as local residents! Join us and make a difference.

Harvestin’ the County at the TASTE! event on Saturday!

September 28th, 2009

Harvestin’ the County was up bright & early Saturday morning to head to the Crystal Palace in Picton for the TASTE! event. 

 We organized the Farmers Market this year and we had lots of products that were generously donated from the following farms:
Vicki’s Veggies
Bethel Organics
Campbell’s Orchards
Fosterholm Farms
Cherryvale Organic Farm
Black Walnut Teaching Gardens
Sunset Farms
Walker’s Greenhouse
Hagerman Farms
Black River Cheese

We sold everything from potatoes, corn, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, gourds, curd, apples, onions, and buckwheat flour, to maple syrup, herbs, edible flowers, lovely mum bouquets, chimichurri sauce, tomato puree, and Harvestin’t-shirts & posters. All the leftover products were donated to the Picton Food Bank.

All proceeds from the Farmers Market also went to the Picton Food Bank.

The weather was a bit windy, but the rain held off and we had a fun-filled day at a great local food event!
