We’ve had a terrific summer but fall is on the way, and that means frost is here. The last of the beans and peas are being picked this week, so if anyone wants to put some away in the freezer for the cold days of winter, now is the time to pick up a 15 pound bag of beans for $15. The same size peas are $18.
Broccoli and potatoes arrive today with kohlrabi coming tomorrow. This, added to Chinese cabbage, spinach, peas and beans … and of course, our famous carrots, will put a fabulous dinner on your table this weekend.

Our customers often ask why Lund’s produce tastes so good. The answer is not a quick tidy explanation; there are many facets behind the quality that L.O.F. achieves. Adhering to certified organic growing standards is certainly a big part of the flavor and character of our vegetables, but beyond that I think the practice of replenishing the land fortifies all the goodness that is already there- right in the soil. In order to do this effectively Lund’s employs the use of ‘green manure‘. A certain percentage of the farm’s arable land is dedicated to growing oats or rye which are perfect for enriching topsoil that can often become exhausted of its growing capabilities from the cultivation of food crops. When the grain/green manure is ready it is tilled under and the decomposition that follows restores vitality to the soil.
How nice to open the Calgary Herald on a beautiful Sunday morning and see my own face staring back! A well-written article by John Gilchrist and Catherine Caldwell highlights our juice bar and presents 2 of our ’secret’ smoothie recipes. Check out their great work: http://www.calgaryherald.com/health/Whipping+tasty+fruits+vegetables/5318957/story.html
