Different places of business are closed at various points through this week. Like many stores we are closed on Canada Day itself – Wednesday, July 1st. For the rest of the week we are open normal business hours – Monday, Tuesday and Saturday 9:30 am to 6 pm, Thursday and Friday 9:30 am to 9 pm.
Have a safe and happy Canada Day!
Welcome to the first full weekend of summer. Schools are finished for their year and Canada Day celebrations are rapidly approaching. We have an assortment of barbecue and patio themed gourmet foods to serve at upcoming gatherings, such as ketchups, marinades and dips. Iced tea and iced coffee are popular beverages during warm weather.
And don’t forgot chocolate covered strawberries for parties, or just as a tasty snack. We’re in week two, but the farm doesn’t have a full sense of how much longer the season will be. So make sure to pick some up before they are suddenly finished, remembering they are best eaten the same day they are hand dipped.
We also have giftware that is Canadian made or symbolic of Canada. Choose from a collection of Hoselton aluminum sculptures, Gordon Hare wall art, Keirstead prints, Trisha Romance collectibles, Cherished Teddies, Lang calendars by Canadian artists and so much more.
Normally we are open Thursday nights until 9 pm, but today, Thursday June 25th we are closing early at 6 pm to host another all you can eat chocolate night. Our first night on Monday June 22nd was a lot of fun. We anticipate those who have tickets for this evening’s private event will have a wonderful time as well.
We’ve been watching the weather and waiting… calling the farm regularly to find out if strawberries were ready. Not yet… not yet… not yet… yes! Fresh strawberries are ready for sale. Just in time for Father’s Day weekend milk chocolate covered strawberries are here. Hand dipped every morning to be in store by 11:30 am these delectable treats are best eaten the same day they are made.
Need a larger quantity, or some dipped in dark chocolate? Give us a heads up so they can be ready and waiting for you. They will be especially popular next week as all remaining schools finish up their year.
It may seem as though 2016 is still a long way off, yet here we are almost half way through 2015. Just in time for Father’s Day and school year end gifts a wide variety of 2016 Lang calendars are now in stock. From cats, dogs and horses to birds, butterflies and flowers to fishing, forests and scenic views the options will cover to a range of tastes. These calendars retail at $23.95, but from now until the end of June take advantage of our early bird pricing of $19.95 each.
