This season, we are thrilled to welcome 2 wonderful new plant people to our team. Samm Haughton and Jacqueline Fulham joined us in March and have been involved in planting and growing our crop since then. Samm is a farm girl who enjoys working hard on her farm, caring for her chickens, ducks and rabbits as well as her herd of show cattle. She grows a large veggie garden in the summer and is experimenting growing peanuts. Jacqueline also has experience growing veggies, having interned at Everdale Organic Farm last year. She is currently setting up her own vegetable operation and will be running a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program and attending local markets with her produce. Samm and Jacqueline are now both eager to meet all our regular customers and send our plants off to new homes! Please introduce yourselves to them!
We feel extremely fortunate to have 3 long term employees working with us, who have a wealth of plant knowledge and garden experience. Kieron Rupke, with us for 9 years, Kelly French and Cathy Cook, both with us for 5 years. Our son Dan Martin, is home from university and here to help on weekends. He has exceptional knowledge about growing hot peppers! Chris and our son Ben Martin and friend David Patton will be selling our plants at the Creemore Farmers Market starting Victoria Day weekend. We are all full of enthusiasm and energy and are excited to welcome you back to the farm this spring, helping make your visit productive, fun and informative!
