Getting Ready To See You

As we open the market for another season we reflect back upon what were some very different times. COVID Pandemic times or as Farmer Morris would say “How is your Pandemic going”. 

Forced to rethink and pivot on how we do business we have made many adaptations,  a lot of which are here to stay. We once again have surrounded ourselves with a good crew of employees and we are looking forward to serving you again for another season. Please make sure to read up on our Co
VID-19 Policies and directions if you are planning a visit.

You can shop the Market, order ahead on curbside or come and experience one of the first true farm market drive thru with all in store items available for you to purchase. Let us do the work for you while you relax worry free in your vehicle. With these 3 ways to shop here at Barrie Hill Farms we have options for everybody.

Starting with Asparagus (coming soon!) we hope supporting local is as important to you as it is to us. Sustainability in local farming is so important and is one of the main reasons that Barrie Hill Farms only sources Local Ontario grown fruits and vegetable for your selection. Want to get hands on? Why not make plans to come and try the very first Asparagus Pick Your Own experience ($20/pp). Included we will take you to one of our asparagus fields where you can learn a little about how they grow and then pick your own 4L basket to take home with you. Its like having your own custom farm right in your backyard. That’s what supporting local means.

With the market open we will start sourcing locally grown vegetables as well as most of your market favourites like fresh pies, butter tarts, frozen soups and Entrees. Come say hi to Market Manager Tom and meet some of our new additions to the crew this season. Chef Niki will be in the Kitchen keeping things baking and Morris and workers will be out tending to the crops in anticipation for an excellent year to help you pick local food and keep Ontario green!

 

ITS THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE SEASON

The wait is over and the excitement for all of us is here. After months of hard work and preparation we are please to announce that we are ready to open the doors to welcome you. Our market has been stocked by Al & his team with lots of amazing new products and lots of your old favorites too. Farmer Morris & his guys have been in high gear working hard from the crack of dawn in the fields getting all your seasonal favorites ready. I know they are eagerly waiting for those beautiful little green shoots to make a appearance and be the first welcomed guest of the season.

Come see us all. New faces & old and me Chef Niki. I have lots of yummy new delectable farm made treats baked fresh every morning. I am also excited to keep you all in the loop this year with a new weekly blog telling you all the new stuff happening at the farm. I have also been busy working on lots of fun new recipes that I will attach each week for you and your family to enjoy made with best fruits & veggies our area has to offer.

This weeks mouth watering treat is a Berry Blast Smoothy. Made from our brand new Barrie Hill Farms Berry Blend frozen fruit and farm fresh honey( Both are available on our website or in the market). Check it out its a favorite in my home and for anyone that has kids that are picky eaters.
