Losing a Friend

We have some sad news to share.  Our dog, Lewis, passed away suddenly last week.  At eight and a half years old, he was getting on for a big dog, but he was still full of life, chasing animals, running through the woods and exited whenever anybody arrived at the farm.  He had been with us at Fair Fields almost since the beginning and he was very much a part of our family and the farm.  A little bit of a rascal at points, his biggest faults were probably being too curious and too friendly… that and eating the occasional chicken…!  His presence is sorely missed.  We buried him at the back of the property, so his body and spirit will continue to be part of the place for years to come.

Lewis, we love and miss you,

Your family

Corn Is Here!

Our first planting of our early variety, Solstice, is in full production right now.  A smaller bi-colour variety (think peaches and cream), it has a nice delicate sweet flavour.  As the season continues, we should have 5 more varieties, Natural Sweet, Natural Bright, Allure, Enchanted, and Mirage.  We love the names…

We have been eating it grilled, boiled, in tacos, risotto, pasta salad, you name it.  In the case of Fiona, our daughter, even raw off the cob! (We don’t recommend this as too much can upset the stomach…)

Corn will be available Wednesday through Sunday at the farm as supplies last.  If we run out, we will post on facebook.com/fairfieldsorganics/ and voicemail.  Call 519-665-7982 or email devanpenney@gmail.com, ahead of time for bulk orders.
