Tomato Tasting
Sunday, Sep 2nd, 10:00am to 5:00pm

Join us and sample the amazing diversity of the tomato!

We grow a good selection of tomato plants every Spring. It's hard sometimes to persuade gardener's to try a new variety if they only have space for one or two plants. We typically hear, "Beefsteak please". We get it! If you're going to invest a summer's worth of care into a tomato plant you want to like the taste come harvest time. Well we have a solution to trying new varieties before you grow them!

We've combined forces with our friend Karyn, owner of The Village Green in Foxboro and Terra Edibles Heirloom Seeds. Between us we've planted a little over 60 varieties of gardener's favourite, heirloom and rare tomatoes. You're sure to find a tomato that tickles your taste buds! And, were asking you to vote for your favourites. Next Spring, you'll know where to find the plants!

Karyn will be here with her heirloom seeds, and possibly a few items from her shop.

We've also invited some special farmers and a baker to sell their wares:

Calum from Owl Farms is coming again with his honey, and hopefully a display hive.

Rob from Small Scale Bread, a new artisan bakery based in Belleville will be joining us.

And, Elly from Railway Creek Farm will be here with her fresh garlic harvest

A city family of six, one dog, two cats, two rabbits, two chickens, a Woodie station wagon, household contents in a moving van, and a convoy of extended family members. That’s how we arrived at the farm forty years ago this week, after a mountainous snowstorm...

Joel and I have long discussed the hope that resistance to Impatiens Downy Mildew could and would be found. Ball Horticultural Company announced yesterday that they have successfully mapped the Impatiens 'wallerina' genome.
Soon, we should be able to grow and offer resistant impatiens, and you can fill your gardens with a riot of colour once again! ~ Jenn

Our holiday greenery is available for pick up at our farm any day between now and Christmas Eve. We are located at 2666 Harmony Rd. We accept Cash, Debit, or VISA and MasterCard.

Our winter collection features birch logs, fresh native greens, branches and cones sustainably harvested and collected here, or within 25 kms of our farm.

Christmas Dinner - Beautiful raw birch logs harvested at Durkin Family Farm in Read, and crafted by Eddie here at our farm. Stored properly, these centrepieces can be refilled year after year. My own centrepiece is over 40 years old. Your choice of red, white or cream candles. We'll do our best to match your table setting from our holiday ribbon inventory. We want you to get what you would like, so its best to contact us as soon as possible. We have a limited number of premade logs on hand, and it does take a few hours to customize each centrepiece.

Centrepieces $40
Tealight Candles: Small & Medium $5, Large $8
Buffet or Place card holders $2.50

Victorian Christmas Kissing Balls - $30. Hanging a kissing ball in a doorway is much like placing mistletoe above an entryway. The difference is the kissing ball is made up of interlocking evergreen branches. Not only used for their beauty, but also for their symbols of devotion and loyalty. Our kissing balls are densely encased with native greens harvested at Molloy's Tree Farm in Stirling. At its heart, a potato.

Winter Containers or Baskets - $45. Crammed full of four kinds of fresh greens from Molloy's Tree Farm and Durkin Family Farm with birch slices, dogwood branches, and pinecone highlights. They will last well past the holiday season and still look wonderfully seasonal.

Call us at 613-477-1908 or email jenn@prosperityacres.ca to order and arrange pick up. It helps us to know how to customize your greenery, and allows us the time to do so. ~ Jenn

If the weather holds on Saturday morning, I'll be at the Belleville Farmers' Market with (real) birch log centrepieces, our birch candle holders and matching place card holders. I've been sharing a booth with Vern & Pat from Molloy's Tree Farm. Vern has a nice selection of fresh-cut Christmas trees! ~ Jenn

Created this wreath (32-34") just because I like a simple wispy style. No fuss! Contrasting greenery and juniper berries. ~ Jenn

Bridget has a half-dozen of our winter containers at Blessington General Store. I have about the same here at the farm. Same design, in various container styles with complimentary ribbon. ~ Jenn

I made hanging baskets this year as a trial. Sold some at the Belleville Farmers' Market, so they must be okay. Bridget has one for sale at Blessington General Store, and I have two left, here at the farm. Three sets of pinecones, and three ribbons - visible from all angles. ~ Jenn
