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.
It’s spring time and we’re busy on the farm preparing for the next berry season. In the past months we’ve pruned thousands of currant and gooseberry bushes. Now, we’re just finishing cleaning up all of those clippings as the leaves and blossoms begin to pop.
As many of you may be aware, our bee and pollinator populations are in decline. They are starving because there is not enough nectar in the summer months. If we all work together, we can turn this situation around. Pollinators are vital to our local food supply.
From everybody here at Silver Rill Berry Farm, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
