Holiday Greetings from Strawberry Hill Farm
We would like to wish all our customers and friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
At our end of season employee dinner we figured that Strawberry Hill farm has directly supported 35 people during it's fifth growing season. You have helped make this possible through your support of a local family farm.
2016 has been an interesting year in many ways. Elton (our oldest son) was able to spend time on organic cattle farms in the beautiful mountains of Switzerland. Nollie started her own herd of cows and chickens. We had a great team working here on the farm and got our crops harvested and field work done earlier than ever.
Sadly two wholesalers who supported small NB farmers both ran into financial trouble which has impacted many farmers in the region, ourselves included. We are thankful for our many other direct customers who together make up the majority of our sales and supported us through these challenges.
We are looking forward to 2017 and assessing whether we can increase our box program while also working on improving other efficiencies on the farm.
We hope you all have a restful and enjoyable Holiday Season and wish you a productive and happy New Year!.
Tim, Kirsten, Elton, Nollie, and Bruce
