Like every small farm, we need your support. But what a trade off! Some of that ever-waning-in-value government paper for a myriad of sumptuous food delights. The Brookbank farmstand carries a large variety of fruits and vegetables in season. Typically it is stocked and open Thursday through Sunday from late Spring to end of summer. Located on the northeast corner of Brookbank, at the intersection of Henry and Russell Road. The farmstand works on a true flash-from-the-gentler-past Honour System (fine, it’s not all altruism: we can’t both farm and keep a hawk eye on the stand, can’t pay a cashier, and repudiate the world of video surveillance). Just bring correct change if you can, and BE the honour you are.
THE GIBSONS FARM COLLECTIVE (GFC)
We are founding members of the GFC, a collaboration between neighbouring organic farms that brings a wide range of locally grown/raised/crafted edibles weekly through our next generation CSA distribution model, an online ordering process that gives much greater convenience and flexibility (choice, more, less, etc.) to our wonderful consumers. It’s a simple system, it’s digital, and it works. A newsletter is emailed to you each week with a short blog and a full listing of what is available in the coming week. You simply order what you like, using an online shopping cart menu. Your order is then harvested fresh on pick up day. Pick up day is also your opportunity to connect with local farmers, and enjoy the additional mini ‘food hub’ market on site every Thursday at Brookbank.
