Borscht... the perfect fall food!

This is an extremely simple recipe, but it tastes soooo good!  And it's loaded with fresh vegetables, so it is also very good for you!

You will need:
2 lbs Red Beets
1 Walla Walla Onion
1 lb Super Sweet Carrots
2 lbs Sieglinde Potatoes
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup chopped fern dill

2 litres chicken stock
1 small can tomato paste
1 cup vinegar
5 Bay leaves

Ukrainian Beet Rolls - Recipe... YUM!

Before Brian and I got together, I had never tasted these things called 'Beet Rolls' before... They were always something he craved, and when he decided to make them for me one day, I thought... UH OH!

HOWEVER.... since then, I have become addicted to these scrumptious little rolls, and have become pretty good at making them myself!  I have shared this recipe with MANY of our customers, and because my hand hurts from writing it out all the time, I thought I would add it to our Blog.  I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Spinach Recipe Anyone? Go Popeye!

Welcome to our Blog!  The Vernon Farmers' Market and the Kelowna Farmers' and Crafters' Market are both in full swing now, each running twice a week!  We attend Monday and Thursday mornings in Vernon, and Wednesday and Saturday mornings in Kelowna.

Strawberries AND Baby Carrots Galore

Despite the late Spring... OUR SUPER SWEET CARROTS HAVE ARRIVED!  They are really baby baby, so pickling would be an excellent idea!  And of course, they make a healthy treat for snacking...

It has been a cool, wet Spring, which means that Strawberries have been taking their SWEET time... but that's exactly what happened!  They're SWEET and FLAVOURFUL... we grow these berries because we KNOW you'll be satisfied with their taste!  Mmmmm... Smoothies, Jam, Strawberry Shortcake!  YUM

Spring has SPRUNG!

We are up and running at our farm now, so stop by Monday to Saturday from 9am-5pm!  You can explore our greenhouses for that PERFECT tomato plant, or pick up a bag of our Super Sweet Carrots...  

FRESH SPINACH has made it's first appearance of the season - full of iron and Vitamin K, it's exactly what you need to get back into eating healthy and locally!

See you soon!


Well, it's SPRING!  And Farmers' Markets are starting up for the Season!
