Only organic gardening methods used in all vegetable production on Mile Hill Farms & at Root Cellar Gardens.Garden soils have been made richer by growing nitrogen rich crops, then turning the crops directly into the soil. By rotating where plants are grown each year we cut down on disease, and pest problems.
We strictly adhere to the following standards with our purchasing of seed, planting, and garden care and maintenance: * No use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides * No use of chemical fertilizers * No use of genetically modified organisms
While both Mile Hill Farms and Root Cellar Gardens adhere to the same strict ecological growing stands, source farm (Root Cellar Gardens / Mile Hill Farms) is identified throughout the order form using initials (RCG/MHF) for your information.
Storage vegetable orders are available on two separate dates (determined by harvest times for each veggie). This year's pick up information is as follows (but can vary depending on seasonal weather issues):
*Friday September 1 pick up: garlic, frozen pesto, kohlrabi, and frozen peas. (*These Items have been delivered as ordered and are no longer available on this order form.)**Friday September 29 pick up: carrots, beets, leeks, onions, celeriac, parsnips, rutabaga, and squash. Pick up will be at the site of the Thunder Bay Country Market on the proposed dates. Note- Pick up WILL NOT BE during regular market hours for ease of parking close to the veggies, and less carrying! (We will send out a confirmation and reminder of pick up closer to harvest time.)
You will receive a confirmation of your order once it has been placed. Orders are filled on a first come, first serve basis so don't delay!
