Wow!! has time ever been going fast over the last few months.  It’s hard to believe that fall flew by us and I am already staring out a snow covered window waiting for Christmas.

… Keep reading for info on upcoming winter labyrinth walks below …

Things have been moving by quickly here at Lorhill Farm, even though I have been doing a poor job keeping you all updated! We still feel very honoured that so many of you are interested in what is happening here at the farm.

So I’ll give a brief synopsis of our fall …

We have heat now running in our greenhouse so we are able to keep growing our lettuce through the winter season.  One of our beloved beefers, Sparkle Diamond, has had a positive preg check so we are very excited that next summer there will be a little calf running around in the pasture.  Our hens are doing quite well in their new inside home, and that crew has expanded to 9 hens and 1 rooster (which was a surprise!). The Knoll is now closed for the season but our labyrinth facilitator will be hosting some indoor labyrinth walks through the winter (info for that is below).  Lorhill Gardens is finishing up their amazing winter displays and thank you all for a great first season.

As promised, information for the upcoming labyrinth walks.

THIS WINTER, You are invited to come and experience the Labyrinth. No experience necessary, just your curiosity!

I will be hosting several informal/relaxed, information and walk workshops.

Learn about and experience this ancient Spiritual tool for prayer, meditation and self–unearthing

 With Labyrinth Facilitator ~ Patricia Wagler                                                       

Walking the Labyrinth clears the mind and gives insight into your life and spiritual journey. 

Walking the path urges action.  It calms you when you are in the throes of life transitions.

Walking the Labyrinth helps you see your life in the context of a path; a pilgrimage, and because everything is spiritual, the labyrinth invites you realize that you are not a human being on a spiritual path, but a spiritual being on a human path. 

Explore & Experience the Mystery of walking the Labyrinth.

We are Sold Out!

I really never thought I would say those words, especially when I look in the greenhouse every week  and see all the lettuce waiting to be sold!

But this week it happened, we have sold out of romaine and have orders waiting to be filled for next week.  We are incredibly grateful and thankful that there are people and businesses out there that eat local and support/take chances on small local growers!!

This has also encouraged us to continue growing, and to be able to produce more each week, so that is the plan! We are just going to keep moving forward, growing and being thankful for all the amazing consumers like you!

Our crop for next week is already looking lovely!

We are currently working on more ways to sell our romaine lettuce, we love our product and want to share it with as many people as we can.

Hung out to dry!!

A couple weeks ago we picked our garlic, almost 2000 heads!

We were quite happy with how they turned out, the majority are all fairly good sized heads which will be great for planting again in the fall.  We are planning on using most of these cloves as seeds to hopefully triple our number of garlic plants for next year.

With this crop we planted and picked everything by hand, but as I’m looking around at the number of garlic cloves hanging in my shed the idea of planting all of them by hand again this year seems extremely daunting! Hopefully we can find some type of garlic planter to help us out!

On a completely different note, except for the fact that these two things go together quite nicely :). We have another batch of free range chicken for sale (frozen whole birds).  We are selling for $3/lb, and they are all between 3-4lbs. Send us a message if your interested in any, or feel free to pass this note on to someone you know who may be looking for local free range meat.

There are always extra eyes on us when we work on our lettuce in the greenhouse, I can only imagine what they would do if they ever got in here. Oh what tasty treats! their thinking …ha! It is always lovely to have the company as we work, and of course we do share.  If you would like to get your hands on some of our lettuce we are selling it for $2/head. You can pick up at the farm or depending on distance we can deliver.

……..

I think Captain Flattop was wrestling with one of the many thistles in our pasture. I believe it only adds to her wonderfully styled hair do, that and she won’t let me take them out!

Things keep moving moving moving here at Lorhill Farm!!

Tis the season of outdoor work, new animal friends and lots and lots of weeding. Our hens joined us here at the farm this week, we were all excited to see what they would do with the massive space and lots of greens to eat.  We were also surprised to already find some eggs from them on the second night they were here … I guess they are feeling at home and comfortable!
