Thank you and Happy New Year

Posted in organic-farming

The end of the year is near and we’d like to shine a light on our hard working staff without whom this operation, well, simply wouldn't operate!

Although the fields are covered in snow, we’re still hard at work inside the greenhouses seeding, watering and harvesting, and in the “shed” (as we call our big red building) washing, grading and packaging.

Our wonderful shed crew (photo below) work together sorting through the vegetables and packaging the large variety of products we deliver to our chefs, retail boutiques and farmers markets! 

Shed Crew

In order from left to right: Heather, Cheryl, Brenda, Michelle, Naomi, Susan, Alee and Vicky

A few staple staff are missing in the picture to the left: Kelly is busy watering the marigolds in the greenhouse, Neal is washing potatoes and #ffarmerffrench (Mike) is pulling our neighbour out of the ditch with the tractor!!! Nothing serious, just a minor slip!

We would also like to thank all of those who buy our vegetables for all of your support and encouragement this season. 

Customer Visits

We had the pleasure of visiting some of our customers over the holidays and eating in their restaurant! It was an absolute delight to taste our vegetables prepared for us!

We  look forward to the arrival of 2 of our long-time staff from Mexico back in January. We really couldn't do any of this with them!

To a great 2017 growing season and more delicious vegetables! Happy New Year from all of us here at Cookstown Greens
