This past fall at our farm corn maze we gathered the entrance fee and accepted donations from customers to give to the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank. This month I was very happy to present Board member Charlotte Chesham with a cheque for $1147.75 on behalf of our customers at Reesor’s Farm Market.

Recently we harvested 8,000 lbs of corn from the maze (grain corn, not sweet corn in case you’re wondering) and we’ll be donating the proceeds from the sale of the corn to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. CFGB is a great organization that works in the developing world helping people grow more food to better feed their families and providing food in times of crisis for hungry people.

On behalf of my family and all of the staff at Reesor’s, I wish you a very happy Christmas and holiday season and I hope for all good things for you and your family in 2015.
