Robyn Miller of CBC visited today July 9th, 2013

Robyn Miller of CBC came to the farm today, she was interested in learning more about our 100 Acre Farm and our CSA.

Robyn toured the farm with me and then I was interviewed.  It will be aired at 11:00 pm tonight (July 9th) on CBC Late Night and again on CBC Compass 5-6 pm July 10th.

She also interviewed Fan Zhang one of our customers. She was fascinated that little PEI has so many newcomers and that farmers like me are growing different crops for these new Islanders.

She seemed to enjoy seeing the hens and roosters walking around the farm and enjoying the beauty of the view.  Visitors often remark on the beauty of the view.

Robyn was charmed by the sight of our seven two day old piglets. These are Berkshire hogs, a heritage breed. They are known for the quality of their meat and flavour and their good mothering instincts. Here are some photos of the new additions to the farm.

The new arrivals...
