Farm News

Cranberries bloom in late June and into July. It's a pretty time of year on the farm because the vines take on a blush of pink. Cranberries were named for their flower. Early settlers thought the cranberry blossom looked like the head of a crane and called them 'crane berries.'

Each upright on a cranberry vine will produce 5-7 flowers. If I do my job right, that means 3-5 cranberries will form. Our Local Food Plus certification indicates that we farm in a low impact way to ensure a healthy crop and a sustainable future.

We've also got an exciting development happening on the farm. If you drop by, you'll see us working on Blueberry Hill - an area we're planting with various types of blueberries. We're trying to discover the best way to grow blueberries in Muskoka. Come check it out!

Keep up with farm happenings by following me on Twitter.

Winery News

Our Blueberry Wine was released in the LCBO just in time for summer! If you love blueberries, you'll love this wine. Slightly sweet with lots of blueberry character, it's the perfect wine for serving chilled on the dock. Drop by the winery this summer and try a sample. You can then sip a glass on our patio and take some home with you!

This summer, I'll be out and about doing lots of local wine shows and events. For information on where I'll be next, check out our Facebook page - or message me on Twitter!
