Sitting on the lake shore and visible from the QEW is Cheryl and Barney Barnes’ market garden. An integral, permanent and delightful fixture for all to see and experience. The garden is expected to produce a continuous succession of sun ripened vegetables throughout the this growing season. Locally grown fruits compliment the Farm Gate, along with INN THE PINES free range eggs and homemade preserves.
Grown naturally, traditionally and hand picked, rows of vegetables are sown in strip beds and crops are rotated to maximize the season, bringing our customers a fresh, farm to your table experience. While we prefer to avoid the term “organic”, our produce is about as “organic” as you can get, by popular definition.
We start with early spring onions, beets, peas, and lettuce (which is dug fresh for you while you wait!) and follow with all that summer has to offer; 35 heirloom tomato varieties, sweet corn, zucchinis, peppers, beans, cucumbers and so much more. Autumn brings us our comfort foods; pumpkins, potatoes and squash, to warm us for those cool fall evenings.
