We now have a Monarch Butterfly Way-station....

Several environmental and watershed groups around PEI are creating Monarch Waystations as a way to help the endangered butterfly species. They include the Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association, Wheatley River Improvement Group, the Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group, and the Cornwall Area Watershed Group.

We had their crew out July 8th planting trees and flowers in an unused piece of land at the farm as a way-station for the butterflies. We'll have a visit again later for some some butterflies in various stages of development to be put in.



James helped transport some of the transplants as they had hundreds and it was quite a hike.





 An old stream bed runs across the farm, they planted trees throughout this.

RJR Farm New Direction

After over 6 consecutive years of our direct-to-your-door delivery CSA model we are taking a new direction with RJR 100 Acre Farm. We will no longer be offering the CSA. We are working on developing a new plan for the farm. Thank you to all of our customers who have shared in the land's bounty with us over the past years. We look forward to continuing these relationships that we have built as your friends and local farmer.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few  batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.

RJR Delicious Red Tomato Salsa

We always like to make multiple batches of this to keep us through the year. Tomorrow we're going to try out some green tomato recipes. RJR's  Salsa First chop all of the vegetables 7 cups of tomatoes chopped 2 cups of onions chopped 1-2 cups of green peppers chopped 1/2 cup of cilantro chopped OPTIONAL 6 Hot peppers - chopped Combine all of the chopped ingredients in a large cooking pot and add the following. 1 Tablespoon of coarse salt 1 Teaspoon of ground cumin 1 can of (156 ml ) tomato paste 3/4 cup of white vinegar Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a low simmer. Taste and adjust seasonings, we like granulated garlic and freshly ground black pepper. Pour into sterilized jars. If you like a smoother  salsa  chop finely or after cooking pulse in a food processor if you like a chunky  salsa  rough chop the vegetables.
