Canadian Thanksgiving at Plan B Organic Farm

     The other day some American visitors remarked on how “early” our Thanksgiving holiday is here in Canada, and this got me thinking about why that is. We are, for the most part, a much colder country so it makes sense that our Fall Harvest Celebration comes earlier in the year but it is also the most abundant time in southern Ontario. Here at Plan B Organic Farm Thanksgiving weekend seems to come at the perfect time, it almost always brings our first hard frost. This time of year we’re constantly checking the Weather Network, waiting for those numbers to dip below zero, and when they do we make a mad scramble to harvest the last remaining hot crops, such as peppers, tomatoes, & squashes from the fields. We put “row covers” over some of the more tender greens and hope we can extend their harvest just a little bit longer. With the last of the summer crops, plus fall storage crops, and fresh greens still growing in the fields, early October is incredibly abundant so what better time for a big harvest celebration! It’s also when we say goodbye to a lot of our seasonal staff and we give thanks for the many hands that helped bring in the harvest on our farm this season. We would also like to extend a big THANK YOU to all of you, our CSA members who make organic farming possible for us. But Thanksgiving does not mean that the season for eating local is over! There’s still lots of great food growing in our fields & greenhouses, and cold storage so we look forward to feeding you & your family all winter long.

                         Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!ct2ele_wcaa-q8v

What people are saying about Plan B!

“It is always a ‘good’ Wednesday night for me as I wait in anticipation to find out what our boxes will contain.  We then spend Wednesday after pick up and as a family wash, prepare and ziploc up our vegetables and fruit for the week.  I then menu plan for the week based on our vegetables.”

“It is really great that this has forced me to prepare vegetables that I would never have even chosen….or found in our grocery store.  Previously, believe it or not, our family had never tried swiss chard before.  It has really provided variety to our eating and increased our intake, no doubt, of healthy vitamins and minerals.”

“Our vegetables have always been fresh on pick up and there is such a satisfaction in knowing it was grown ‘down the road’.”

Plan B creates organic products which are raised, grown, stored, and/or processed without the use of synthetically – produced chemicals or fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, or any other pesticides, growth hormones or growth regulators. Only farmers who produce food according to a set of standards, undergo evaluation by other certified growers, and pass a yearly inspection by a trained independent inspector can label their products certified organic.

What is CSA?

Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) is a system of growing and distributing organic produce that restores the link between the farmers and city dwellers.
