Salad Greens

A variety of salad greens are grown year round in the greenhouse. We pick them once a week in the winter months and twice a week through the summer. They are always delivered within 24 hours of harvest resulting in a tender product that is much higher in nutritional value than similar products that have travelled thousands of miles.

We grow year round, each season having a different challenge and reward. In winter months even though the greenhouse is kept heated by a wood boiler and given supplemental light, the growth slows down dramatically giving us a bit of a break. By February things pick up and the greenhouse is bursting with fresh growth and lots of tomato and veggie starts. Through the summer months growth is so abundant that we diversify the crops to include basil and cucumbers.

Salad greens can be purchased through local retailers sold either prepackaged or by the 100/gm. Restauranteur and caters are also welcome to purchase direct from the farm by the kilogram.

Mesculn Mix

We make adjustments to our Mesclun recipe according to how strong and healthy the plants grow, how well they present themselves after harvest, and what natural disease resistance is inherent in the seed. There are dozens of varieties to choose from, and we like the colours, flavours and textures of our mixes. We have experimented with several varieties of mixed greens in our Mesclun mix.


Spicy Greens

Spicy Greens are more flavourful salad greens and include international ingredients such as Early Mizuna, Red Russian Kale, Tatsoi, Arugula, Red and green mustards. Their deep green hues and satisfying flavours make incredible winter feasts, needing little or no dressing.



It has a strong flavour for a leafy green, and is included in the spicy greens mixture as well as sold on it's own. We grow arugula every month of the year, but we notice seasonal variations in texture and flavour. The varieties that we grow are extra tender, rich and tangy, with a touch of peppery heat. Arugula is also known as Roquette.
