My name is Andrew Courtney and I am the owner and manager of a still, small farm, 2 acres of Perth County earth dedicated to growing organic vegetables. My focus is salad crops, greens and veggies that are commonly used to make salads. I grow intensively, using permanent beds with walking machinery and hand tools, no compaction and low tillage. My aim is to grow nutritious and flavourful vegetables while at the same time continually improve the biological life in the soil.
With the Salad Subscription, my goal is to offer the bounty of the farm entirely to the immediate local community, negating the need for wholesaling, middlemen or long distance sales. Consider signing up for a Salad Subscription and joining with me for the 2018 season to model a farmer-consumer relationship of neighbourly accountability. A union that proves ‘better, not bigger” can actually work.
And quite frankly, imported California mesclun mix has next to no taste. Once you’ve eaten freshly harvested and local, you won’t want to go back!
