Maureen & Elizabeth moved to the Eastern Ontario in 2002 and took up farming in Balderson. On this sweet meadow of clay/loam soil, we have had a magical experience over the past 14 years of growing organic vegetables for the local market.  We have decided to leave vegetable farming and instead focus on growing buckwheat to produce our own buckwheat flour.  The harvest this year was very good and Blue Chicory's bees were very active among the buckwheat flowers. 

As we move forward into this new chapter, buckwheat flour is available for sale at the farm and will be at the Perth Farmers Market spring and fall. We will also have buckwheat seed available if you would like to try using it for a cover crop in early spring.  Buckwheat makes phosphorus available to plants as well as gives the soil an amazing texture. Our 2017 buckwheat crop failed due to the wet weather. Look for an update in 2018 on future buckwheat availability.  Buckwheat flour and buckwheat waffles will be available at the Christmas Farmers Market in Perth. 

We are also planting raspberry canes this spring and will have a you-pick raspberry patch ready for picking in 2018.  For up to date information on picking dates and prices, like our facebook page: www.facebook.com/Sweet-Meadow-Farm-Raspberry-UPick
