We are a new vegetable farm operation located in Jasper, midway between Smiths Falls and Merrickville. We grow a diversity of vegetables in 3 acres of field crops and in an innovative system of heated greenhouses. This allows us to extend our season into the winter months.
Our goal is to help increase the supply of local, high-quality organic produce in Lanark County and Ottawa, particularly during the off-season. Our farm is in the process of organic certification and we adhere to the Canadian organic standards.
We sell our produce through a unique Winter Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA is a model where customers buy a share of a farm's produce up front, then receive a regular basket of food over the farm's harvest season. Bluegrass Farm offers one of the first winter CSA programs in Lanark County, delivering baskets to customers every two weeks from mid-October to mid-March. Each basket is a mix of carefully stored crops from our fall harvest, and freshly harvested greenhouse produce. We offer CSA pick-ups at our farm, in Perth and in Ottawa. Our 2015-2016 Winter CSA shares are now on sale through our website.
We also sell to restaurants and wholesale buyers.
