Newsletter – February 2017

Winter is on the run! Hello to all our brave friends who have survived the ups and downs, snowstorms and thaws of this year’s wild Ontario winter.  In Bruce County where are farm is located, we get lots of “lake effect snow”, forming over Lake Huron and dumping on us 20 miles inland, driven by powerful West winds which make driving hazardous and produce a lot of drifting.  This year’s onslaught has been interrupted by major thaws with rain that turns our lanes and yards to ice when the temperature drops again.  Be careful!  We are consoled by the...

November 2016 Newsletter
