This time of year is wonderfully intense. Everything is growing a mile a minute and I am racing to get more things in the ground. After a couple of years of serious soil building and weeding I am now the proud garden mom of carrots, radishes, spinach, arugula, peas, beans, squash. Then, of course, there are the larger more serious crops like garlic, potatoes and herbs. We have lots of fresh herbs that I look forward to harvesting, drying and turning into tea when they are all ready.
This coming Sunday (May 24th) is the fourth in a row of summer tea tastings. These fun and informal events allow you to try a variety of different teas. Our tea menu is ever expanding and we are always happy to hear from you, to learn more about your favourite teas and recommendations. We will serve up three different teas accompanied by some locally produced sweets.
The weekend promises lots of sunshine so come on out to the Artfarm for a fun taste of what we do here. We have herbal infusions on the menu and if it gets really hot we will likely put one on ice for you.
Tea Tastings Sunday 2 – 5 pm throughout the summer. Price per tasting is $ 5.00/person. Artfarm 8350 Richards Trail, Duncan BC V9L 6B4

I am working on all kinds of new pieces, the tea bar is stock piled with many, many wonderful new teas and our Sundays are dedicated to tea tastings. Good thing tea drinking helps you keep the lid on…
This year, we decided to sign up for the Duncan Farmer’s Market. Every Saturday from 10 am – 4 pm you will find me at the market with freshly blended teas, teas to sample and, of course, with some of my tea related ceramics. Later on, when our produce is ready we will also be selling that at the market. Can’t wait for our fresh greens. Also, do come by my booth for a cuppa…
