Mike is one of ten local organic farmers at the Village Market. Open Saturdays 8 to 1:30, year round: http://villagemarket.ca/ Photos: 1. Mike talks Red Fife wheat, the variety that made Canada the breadbasket of the world during WWI. 2. Sweet corn, not an easy crop to grow when the birds all prefer his organic corn to the GMO crops growing round about. 3. Mike's son, Rowan, demonstrates row crop cultivation using one of the many 1940s era International tractors that abound on Mike's farm. 4. Petting Mike's pet Jersey cow.
