Important Information

PSA – Anyone who is bitten by a tick should take the tic to the Public Health Unit in Orangeville because they can get the results almost immediately.

This is being sent out to the Dr’s in Dufferin County and will prevent people having to take the anitibiotics if the Doctor is not sure.  So the important information is to take the tick specimen to the Public Health Unit in Orangeville.


Head To Woodfield Farm For The Long Weekend!

August Long Weekend

For the long weekend we will have fresh forest raised pork. If you haven’t tried “The Foraging Pig” pork, raised at Woodfield Farm, then you are missing out on delicious. We will have chops, tenderloin, shoulders, sausage… and of course bacon.

We also have fresh Woodfield Farm raised lamb in assorted cuts and if you are a burger conosuer, we recommend lamb burgers topped with lamb bacon and dressed with spicy tomato jam.

It will be a hot civic holiday and as a refresher we have prepared gazpacho soup made with Ontario field tomatoes, cucumbers, The Easy Farm peppers and an array of herbs and spices.

Marion has been baking a mountain of Mulmur cookies in.preparation for the weekend Creemore and Mulmur markets. These are a customer favourite made with buttery shortbread and chunks of Toblerine chocolate.

With our extra zucchini from the garden we will be featuring   chocolate zucchini loaf with a dark chocolate Toblerone ganache. These will be available throughout the zucchini season, as unlike anyone else, we seemed to have mastered growing this  particular vegetable. 😁

See you at the farm store!
