We’re so excited to announce that we’ll have Black Currant Scones again at the Saturday market!!!
We’ve partnered with Sidney Scones (check her out on Instagram, you’ll be drooling!) and we’re happy to say we’ll have these beautiful scones every Saturday at the Peninsula Country Market, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Saanich Fairgrounds.
But make sure you come early because we have a feeling these tasty treats won’t last long!
You can find your Favourite Farm Girl this weekend at the fifth annual Island Mavins Handmade and Vintage Market.
The market is Saturday (July 22) from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sunday (July 23) from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Boganes Farm, 2734 Island View Rd., in Saanichton.
The cost of admission is $3 or $5 for both days and parking is free at the site.
We’re officially picking!
While we may have just started – and some of our varieties aren’t quite ready just yet – that doesn’t mean you should wait to give us a call because our fresh fruit goes quickly!
If you would like to place an order for fresh currants (black, red, white), gooseberries (red, green), josta berries or cherries, please give us a call – 250-652-5227.
If you live in the Central Saanich area, keep an eye out for our white and red cherry signs (you can’t miss them around Stelly’s Cross Road) and if you see them, you’ll know the stand is open with freshly picked cherries.
We’re also at the Peninsula Country Market every Saturday until October at the Saanich Fairgrounds, 1528 Stelly’s Cross Rd., from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Otherwise, our stand is open by appointment, so please call ahead (250-652-5527), we wouldn’t want you to make the trip and not have what you’re looking for.
We’re starting to see some colour in those berry rows!
We’ll be at the Peninsula Country Market today from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Saanich Fairground, 1528 Stelly’s Cross Rd., in Central Saanich, so don’t forget to drop by and see your Favourite Farm Girl while you’re out celebrating Canada’s 150th.
We’ll have the first berries of the season and of course, our famous Black Currant Concentrate. Pictured below are our summer pudding baskets. This week’s include black, red, and white currants, red gooseberries, and josta berries (a cross between a currant and a gooseberry).
If you miss us at today’s market, give the farm a call (250-652-5227) to place an order because these fresh currants won’t last long!
Those of you waiting for cherries, they’re not quite ripe yet. We’ll keep you posted!
Don’t miss your Favourite Farm Girl this weekend at Art in the Vineyard!
Hosted by the Prospect Lake District Community Association this event takes place Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Starling Lane Winery, 5271 Old W Saanich Rd., and features a wide range of vendors including yours truly!
There’s sure to be something for everyone and it promises to be an afternoon of fun you won’t want to miss!
The cherries aren’t quite ready but they are on track for early July. We’ll keep you posted and if you see our red and white cherry signs around Saanichton, then you know the stand is open with these tasty delights.
The bees on the farm have been busy these past several weeks and they’ve also been on the move.
We found them swarming yesterday, the second time this season they’ve decided to take flight. If you’ve ever been in the midst of a swarm it sure is something to see…
Don’t worry, the bees were relocated to a new home by our bee keeper Russ Taylor from Silver Rill Corn.
