LOCAL ASPARAGUS VARIETY
We started planting asparagus in 2020 and now have just under an acre, enough to keep us busy!
We have one variety, Guelph Millennium, developed in Ontario by local farmers and the University of Guelph. Millennium is a winter hardy, high-yielding and top-quality variety, suitable for both organic and conventional production.
Our asparagus patch is still young, so it has not reached full production yet. We expect to have about 3 weeks of harvest this year, starting in the second week of May. Next year it will be more like 5-6 weeks, and after that, we should have a 6-8 week season every year.
