Spring is in full swing!
We have hit the ground running, garden beds are being prepped and planted - we have expanded our gardens ~10 fold since last year, so we will have lots to offer this summer!
We still have a few spots left in our CSA (community supported agriculture) veggie box subscriptions! For more information see our "Produce-CSA" page.
The outdoor market season has bugun! We will be at two markets this year, both on 124 street in Edmonton - Thursdays from 4-8 (already started), and Sundays from 11-3 (starting June 3).
We have new batches of pastured/free range chicken this spring (which includes whole birds and individual cuts!). Pasture raised beef is also still available in individual cuts as well as bulk boxes. And we have pasture raised pork available - see the pork page for details on pricing.
Want more from the farm?! We will be participating at Indulgence Edmonton this year, we have been paired with Pampa Brazillian Steakhouse - Ellerslie and Mission Hills Winery, there will be 14 other pairings to check out in addition to us - tickets are on sale for that now (and they go fast!). We will be hosting the 2018 Grand Taste tour this summer. You will get to take a trip into the country and tour our farm, as well as a chef will prepare a delicious meal for you from products raised/grown right on our farm. As well, we will be participating in Open Farm days this year, this is an opportunity to come out to our farm and tour around. in addition to open farm days we will be making it more of a festival experience, where a bunch of other fantastic vendors will come out to the farm to join in the experience. More information coming soon!
We are the Doherty's, we moved out to the Wildwood area in the spring of 2016, and established Stonepost Farms.
John comes from southern Alberta, where he was raised on a small family farm which included raising beef, pork and chickens in addition to growing produce for family consumption. John has a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science, and has extensive experience in the agriculture industry. Becky comes from southeastern B.C., where she was raised in a small rural community and was heavily involved in the family trail riding business. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in geography and GIS. We share a passion for the outdoors, the ability to produce our own food in a natural and healthy fashion, and sustainability of the land. We hope to pass these values down to the next generation of farmers, which includes our kids.
We focus on regenerative farming techniques, going beyond sustainability. Regenerative farming is a holistic approach to farming which allows us to better our land and the soils on which everything on the farm revolves around. We continually seek new opportunities to learn and adopt new best management practices, techniques and technologies. This allow us to better operate our farm and return the land and environment to a more natural state.
