Work shares available

We are offering work shares for the remainder of this season and will likely be looking for a couple for next year as well. We are looking for a few extra hands who can help out a couple hours a week (3 or more), Thursdays or Fridays for harvesting and packaging. In exchange you will be provided with a share of the CSA. Hours and size of share will be negotiated individually. For next season we'll need help with weeding, planting, harvesting, packaging, and possibly other odd jobs that might need to be done.

We're looking for people who have some experience in gardening, and who can physically do the bending and crouching required for field work. Own transportation required.

Please e-mail csa@rjrfarm.ca if interested with a little bit of background on experience and your availability.

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.

Cucumbers!

We have cucumbers. If we get rain this week we will have a lot of cucumbers. Our favourite types of cucumbers are Marketmore and Poona Kheera they are both tasty and make great pickles. Poona Kheera also can be used in stir-fries and chutneys. It is an unusual cucumber it has a white to yellow skin that changes to brownish red as it matures. Eat it as you would any other cucumber. A little grand-daughter of one sharer loves Poona Kheera so much at three years old she would gobble down a whole cucumber. Here is a recipe that we use: Aunt Anna’s Mustard Pickles 10 cups cucumbers peel, remove the seeds and chop into roughly 1/2 inch chunks (7-9 cucumbers) 1-quart onions diced (6-8 white onions) 1-quart celery and cauliflower diced (2 cups of each) 1 red pepper diced (2 if you want more colour) 4 tablespoons pickling salt Cover with 4 tablespoons pickling salt and water. Leave overnight. Drain well. Sauce 4 cups vinegar 6 cups sugar 4 tablespoons dry mustard 1 cup flour 1 tea
