Good Cheer Gardens Product List
Naturally grown non-GMO vegetables, esp. sweet corn, potatoes, turnips, beets, squash. Dry Beans, Hay. Farm Gate sales welcome|
Our land is both naturally wet clay next to the Bonnechere river, and rich sandy loam on a south-facing slope on higher land in the Douglas area. We raise cattle and sheep and grow vegetables naturally using organic methods with no chemicals and non-GMO. We rotate crops, fertilize with green crop plowdowns and composted animal manure, mulch with our own hay, and hand-pick the potato bugs that the wild turkeys don't get. Our pooch and the wild coyotes keep the raccoons, skunks, and deer out of the vegetables. In keeping with our Irish roots and Champlain's 'company of good cheer', we like to live with good cheer.
