Thinking back 31 years

by Jay Reesor

Wow! Another year almost finished and if you’re like me it’s hard to believe! This year marks the 31st Christmas of Reesor’s Farm Market. It’s easy for me to remember that anniversary because that’s the year our first daughter was born, and 31 years later I’m now a grandfather!

In those 31 years lots has changed here on the farm. I now have many more people to help harvest the corn and pick the strawberries and make sure all of the crops are tended well and sold at our market.  Back in the old days it was just me!  As well, we have more labour-saving equipment which is a real help to everyone here.

When I was a younger farmer we even had livestock here on the farm including pigs and chickens which made for lots more work!

But some things haven’t changed. We are still doing our best to care for the soil and grow healthy, nutritious crops.  We are still trying to be good neighbours to those near and far and still wanting to live simply so others can simply live.

Have a Merry Christmas and may 2017 be a wonderful year for you and yours.

Our Farm Market is now open for our 30th season

We’re proud to announce that we’ve opened for our 30th year this week. With your support and lots of help from our wonderful staff we’ve grown over the decades. Thank you!

We hope that this year will be better than ever for you to enjoy the fruits and vegetables that we and other Ontario farmers grow for you.

This week you’ll find delicious, sweet early strawberries from southwestern Ontario. In a few weeks our own ready-picked strawberries will be ripe and ready.

There’s lots of good eating to be done this spring and soon summer will come with all the bounty of Ontario here for you! Here’s to a great season of Ontario eating!
