Welcome to Rielacres farm. We grow fresh produce for market twelve months of the year. You can find us at farmers markets in Peterborough Ontario. We operate a season farm store at the farm and you can get our produce at the food shop in Peterborough every day of the week.
We have one large heated greenhouse that we start all our seedlings in. We also grow tomatoes and cucumbers extra early in the main greenhouse. We also have 6 hoophouses to aid us in bringing more produce extra early to market. Outside we have 3 acres that we rotate with cover crops. Generally under 2 acres each season is where most of the produce is grown.
We are heavily invested in soil building using cover crops and compost made on farm. We’ve been growing organically forever but don’t see a benefit of paying to be certified. Also each season we have an intern program at the farm. We will have 2 openings for interns to join us at the farm to learn our systems.
I post pictures regularly on Instagram. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram @rielacresfarm
