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.

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.

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices. A ready batch. Clean jars. The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty. Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.
