What is your favourite part about this time of year? Digging your hands into the moist, cool soil and transplanting seedlings? Watching the trees bud and flower? Making rhubarb cobbler or chutney? Perhaps you’ve been busy birthing new arrivals to your farm – lambs, kids, chicks and more! We’d love to hear your stories and see your photos.
Thanks to Kirsten and Alexandra for sharing these two photos of their farm babies with us on our Facebook page! If you have an upcoming events or news, please email us so that we can share on our social media pages.
We are grateful for the ongoing support of Hastings County and the City of Quinte West.
