A Note to Our Customers

Jan. 27, 2020


Dear Friends, 

Happy New Year and welcome to the new decade! I would like to take a moment to thank you for your years of commitment to small scale food production. 

When I started this journey in 2011, I never imagined that it would be the rollercoaster ride it has been. The joy and art of growing food for a living, contrasted with the complications and elements of weather, geography and economy that we cannot always control, has forced me to make some serious decisions as we start the new decade.

As you all know, I have remained a sole producer without a supplemental income to help me with farming. The model we have been following has me producing, marketing, and driving to deliver product. My time is full with the farm and I have not been able to maintain any outside employment. I have put 236,000 km on my little truck in 30 short months, and other time spent feeding pigs, cleaning garlic and marketing makes for very long days. I have determined that we must streamline our model to what the economy and market has asked for. We are launching a Yearly Egg Subscription program where families sign a commitment for 4, 6, 8, or 12 dozen farm fresh eggs a month. Full sign-up details are included in this newsletter.

In addition to farm operations, spring 2020 will see the launch of the Gathering Place Co-op, in which Mandy is deeply involved. This food hub is the first of its kind in Northern Alberta. It will have quality local meals on its menu and a commitment to providing you with ingredients produced close to home. It will be  located 20 minutes south of Long Lake on Hwy 831 and just 3 miles west of Meadow Creek Farm headquarters. As well, this Co-op will help local farmers, including myself, market and distribute their products. Stay tuned for more updates on the Gathering Co-op in the months ahead.

As my time this spring and summer will be heavily invested in the Co-op, I am restructuring our farm production and moving to once-a-month delivery. I’m excited to share these changes with you below.

There is a Feb. 29 deadline for the Yearly Egg Subscription and we expect to sell out memberships so please keep reading for step by step instructions, then go online to https://shop.meadowcreekfarms.ca  and tell us what we should grow for you in 2020.

- Yours in good food, Farmer Mandy
