The Veggie Garden...
The Labine family is proud to produce top quality vegetables and garlic throughout the summer months (end of July to middle of September). We use a mix of traditional and innovative farming methods to produce the best flavour and top nutrition. We only use the manure from our animals combined with a locally purchased organic fertilizer.

Our family wants to keep our land strong and healthy for many years to come. We strive to have the smaller ecological footprint and produce the best. We participate in sustainable farming practices such as soil and erosion protection, crop rotation, pest management, and very limited sprays to keep the soil as rich as possible.
All of the produce we sell in our farm store comes from our farm or other local farms in the area. Here's a list of the vegetables we offer in the summer months;
* Red and White Potatoes
* Yellow and Green Beans
