Round the Bend Farm- a working family farm

Round the Bend Farm is a working family farm. We sell fresh, naturally grown turkeys, as well as seasonal fruits, vegetables and succulents. We have been in continuous operation since 1986. We cordially invite you to come visit us, in season, and bring the family.

ONTARIO STRAWBERRIES ARE HERE!

Fresh Ontario strawberries available in the market, by the quart, or you can order them by the flat.  Don't wait too long to get them, it's going to be a short strawberry season this year!

JUNE!!

June.  This is the month of long, hot summer days and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  We also start our CSA program this month!  And yes, you can still join up.

So what's available in June?  We have asparagus, kale, garlic, kohlrabi, lettuces, beets, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, apples and STRAWBERRIES.  There is nothing better than strawberries and Kawartha Dairy ice cream :)

We are harvesting and seeding at the same time and soon all the fields will be full and growing.  Now we need regular rains, sunny days and temperatures above 25C.

The days are long and full of farming activity.  As the saying goes "you make hay when the sun shines", basically saying as long as there is daylight the farmer is working.  

Sadly though by June 21st, the first day of summer, the days are already getting shorter...seems like such a short time to enjoy this bountiful time of year, no worries though we will be harvesting wonderful fruits and vegetables until November!

Market Hours of Operation

Come visit our market with lots for fresh fruits and vegetables harvested daily when they come ready in the fields, starting with asparagus. Check out our turkey products, eggs, honey, maple syrup, pies, jams, decorated gourds and decor items.

Take a look at our Photo Gallery on what it takes for us to grow a pumpkin or some of flower arrangements.

For the kids, there are downloadable colouring images.

Farming is a lot of very hard, dirty and non-ending work but we still enjoy what we do and we love to share our experiences with others.
