I discovered that one of my veggie boxes (aka CSA share) comes from the town of Leprechauns! Really!

Kathleen and Marshall, from Ottawa Valley Farm to Fork invited me to come out and “pick” my own veggie box (this invitation happened in Episode 2 of my video series, watch it by clicking here). Their farm is located in Douglas, Ontario, just west of Ottawa.
I jumped at the chance to go, and of course brought my camera along with me to film. In my new video, Episode 4: Straight from the Farm, you’ll learn:
- How Marshall and Kathleen combine animal agriculture, vegetable agriculture and gourmet food production to make their food nutritious, delicious and truly sustainable
- What terroir means and how it affects the taste of your food
- How the veggies from their farm become packed with antioxidants and nutrients
And make sure to watch all the way to the end to see the “monster” squash that was hiding in the vines!
Always remember: Tasty foods and healthy food are not mutually exclusive.
