The email from Heather at A Day In The Country said, “we started to pull the garlic today – will pull two more beds tomorrow if you want to come.”
A chance to drop by Missing Goat Organic Blueberry Farms, and see the garlic harvest, maybe pick up a few pounds of organic blueberries, and buy some more fresh batch jam?
Oh Heather, I am in there like a dirty shirt. Or a blueberry, or maybe a garlic bulb, anyways I am there!
Heather has a eye for details, and you can see it in every part of their gorgeous family farm. The Shabby Shack, as they call it, is the farms store front, and it is gorgeously decorated with fresh flowers, white washed walls, and clucking chickens outside. Any of us who long for that perfect place in the country would feel right at home here.
She makes masses of blueberry pies, each Saturday, so be sure to put your order in. She also offers small batch organic jam, made by hand in batches of only 6 jars at a time, and it shows. Blueberry/Lavender, Rhubarb/Rosemary, Strawberry/Pepper, Very Very Raspberry, with most of the ingredients grown on their own farm. I am working my way through all of the flavours and only have one left to try.
And the garlic, oh the garlic, organic, and ever so fragrant. It smells like real garlic, that pungent, elusive not from a grocery store smell that you only get when you grow it organically.
If you don’t live nearby, their products are for sale in various stores on the Lower Mainland, check the website for more details.
I took tons of photos, loved seeing the chickens running around, bought blueberries, jam, and garlic. And I can’t wait to go back and get a pie, that’s on my list of “to do” things.
