hay, hows it goin' ?

this is one of our favourite times of the year. the good hot weather has made haying season fun hard work. our larger field produces wonderful hay that we share with our neighbours and use for mulch throughout the year. fred got a little workout and the barn smells amazing... and yes that is a disco ball in the barn!

we will be at the duncan farmers market this saturday from 9am-3pm. come and see our new idea we call the salad bouquet.

Sunday we will be having our tea tastings from 2-5pm at the farm. it is supposed to be hot so come for an interesting surprise.

meaning of vision

the next five days, from today thursday through monday, we will be part of and hosting the annual cowichan valley visions studio art tour.

for the past three years now we have had the fun of having several hundred people come to the farm and experience margit's ceramic art and the the natural surroundings.

this time means there are many firings in the kilns happening, the farm gets a little gussied up and have the great anticipation of meeting new people and welcoming back many friends/artfarmers.

we will not be at the duncan farmer's market this saturday so come and see us on the farm.
the studio is open from 10am to 5pm. look for the red arrow visions signs to guide your way.
