The asparagus farm located at Black River (near Oxford, NS) was started in 1989. The original Viking KB3 cultivars started from seed still producing today. Over the years the field was expanded to almost 2 acres using seeds from the original plantation and adding the latest Millineum variety.
First sales were made at the Moncton Coop and the various farmer’s markets in Moncton,NB. Today our asparagus is still sold through a distributor at the farmer’s markets there, and also a specialty foods store.
For many years several Sobey’s stores in the metro area were supplied. More recently the focus was changed to providing the high quality fresh asparagus to the Dartmouth and Halifax Seaport markets. Here our customers look forward to the spring arrival of fresh local asparagus from Oxford, NS.
Using best management growing practices and special care in preserving freshness after harvest, we enjoy the repeat sales and positive compliments from our customers.
