What do you find most challenging, what would you like to learn more about in regards to eating local?

We always look forward to getting our neighborhood fresh fruit and vegies. As far as eating out our preference is usually a small family run restaurant where they prepare their own meals. For us there is little free time in the summer so we look forward to enjoy the Fall.

What is your area of work/interest that you would you like to share with other locavores?

We are growers, our Hosta gardens are a nice place to spend the some quiet time and in July the pick your own raspberry patch is very popular with local raspberry lovers. Our patch is very peaceful and tranquil.The thing about raspberries you either love them or not.

Name three things you would like to do relating to eating locally grown food and community building.

We get local produce at the farmers market, just love the fresh corn and potatoes my neighbour grow and Ribfest.

I have the following food items for sale or trade:

In July we offer pick your own or pre-picked Raspberres. On July 13 we will host the Farm Crawl Hamilton, where you can learn to make your own raspberry jam the old fashioned way.

Would you be interested in hosting an event?

Your are welcome anytime, (closed Sundays) Tour our hosta gardens, bring your own lunch...come pick your own summer red raspberries...hopefully we can meet up
