The season is a changing.  But this doesn't mean a thing for the strawberries as they keep ripening away.  There are lots of beautiful berries out there.

It's supposed to be wet on Saturday but we would love to see the berries picked, making the most of the 2015 berry season, so we will open from 9am to noon for strawberry U-pick.

Saturday is not your last chance.  We will continue to do picking by appointment until the rain takes it's toll.

If you don't like picking in the rain come by the farm on Saturday anyhow!  Not only would we love to say hello but you can stock up on roasting chicken, pastured eggs, and beef cuts or sides.  We can confirm that the result of these well-loved, well-fed (mostly grass and milk) animals is some very healthy and tasty beef.

Sides of beef are $5.45/lb including cut and wrap.

Sunday roasts, nutritious stews and soups, and easy meals with good supply of ground beef....  a side of beef is a big outlay of money up front but it beats trying to find a decent cut of beef for a reasonable price in the grocery store all year!

This healthy, humanely raised meat and eggs will be available year round by appointment.   Just phone 250-338-7750 or burch@island.net.

I'm never short on words so you'll hear more from me before the 2015 growing season is over.

The rain is here but so also are the strawberries. There continue to be loads of ripe strawberries and there will continue to be until it get TOO wet and TOO cold.  We have not reached that point yet!

We will continue to be open by appointment this week.  Plus we will open Thursday from 9am to noon and go from there as far as U-pick hours.

It's as simple as emailing us at burch@island.net to make an appointment to come and pick strawberries.  We would love to see the strawberries picked!

Fill your freezer with protein too:

**Beef sides. The sides are approximately 350 lbs hanging weight which is about 230lbs of meat in your freezer.  The price is $5.45/lb hanging weight and includes cut and wrap charge.

The Red Angus/Ayrshire cross were born and raised here on the pasture at Windhover Farm.

**Roasting Chicken

**We'll also be selling our pastured eggs all winter long.

Yes! And of course!  It's September.  They love September.  Supply is up, demand is down, picking is great.

On that note, we will do picking by appointment this week as well as set open hours on Thursday and Saturday this week (not set in stone hours as I have yet to set them!) Check back here to find out these set hours.  But your preferred hours to come and pick may work best so....

this is how picking by appointment works: you call or email us 250-338-7750 or burch@island.net to set up a time that works for you to come and pick strawberries.   Emailing us is more reliable ---especially since our receptionist is now back at school.  Give us a shout, don't miss out.  There are lots of strawberries out there and a whole lot of green ones still to come.

We anticipate a last open day of September 19th or so.  Emphasis on the "or so".
