This past weekend I headed west to Grimsby to pick cherries at the Two Century Farm. Run by the Smith family since 1787, the farm is ideal for fruit trees because of the sand and algae rich soil (a former lake bed) and the location between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment (creating a more moderate climate than the surrounding region). The current Smith to head the farm, Duncan, was on hand to point out the best places to pick. You can find his produce in Toronto at the Sorauren Farmer's Market; look for peaches, coming in August. You can register on the Two Century Farm website to be notified for ideal picking times, sour cherries are ready now!
