De moins en moins de fermes au pays

Categories: 

Alors que le nombre de fermes diminue au Canada, leur taille augmente et leurs exploitants se font de plus en plus âgés, révèle un rapport rendu public mardi par Statistique Canada.

L'agence, qui se fonde sur les données du Recensement de l'agriculture de 2011, a répertorié 205 730 fermes en 2011 au pays, ce qui représente un déclin de 74 000 exploitations agricoles en vingt ans.

Pendant ce temps, depuis 1991, la superficie agricole moyenne a augmenté pour passer de 198 à 778 acres

Un des auteurs du rapport et analyste en agriculture, Martin Beaulieu, a expliqué qu'une des raisons de cet accroissement de la taille des fermes est la mise en commun des terres à mesure que les agriculteurs prennent leur retraite.

Taste of Pontiac: Maple Syrup from Muddy Hands Winery

Categories: 



Spring is officially here, and the sap has started flowing!

Maple Syrup is available at Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, located at 1965 Route 148 -- at the two lanes in Luskville.

Watch for our signs on the 148.

$11 for 1/2 Litre
$20 for 1 Litre.

Guaranteed to be free of any contaminents, and completely lead free -- which is commonly present in most "backyard" maple productions.

Government tested and inspected.

This year, we've extended our Maple syrup production significantly -- partnering with a local company that boils off the sap and packages it for us with all the necessary (and legal) nutritional information.

As always, our products are of high quality.

Who are we?

The name of our farm, Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, is named from the simple belief that amazing things come with passion, love, and hard work(tm).  We continue to strive to provide amazing quality products for your family -- directly from ours.

We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Many are aware that we've been selling quality farm related products here for a couple years -- fresh eggs, organic turkey and chickens, honey, beeswax candles, etc.

We've also planted our first vineyard in the spring of 2013, and you can expect some very interesting surprises from us in the coming years.  Pay attention, because something very exciting is coming to the Pontiac!

Please note: our store front hasn't been built yet, and the products are sold from the farm gate -- directly from our home.

Kelly Egan: Grieving parents’ suspicions confirmed after three-year wait

OTTAWA CITIZEN — The news arrived, with ironic timing, on Valentine’s Day, to hearts long broken.

David McColl, 58, waited for his wife Monica, 56, to arrive home before opening the letter from the office of the Quebec coroner.

He had been their only son. They would do this together.

Almost three years after Anthony (Tony) McColl, 19, was killed in a head-on crash on Hwy. 148, the Aylmer couple officially learned what they had long suspected. The other driver, Brandon Crawford, 20, who also perished, was impaired at the wheel.

The report, dated Jan. 17, said toxicology analysis on Crawford found traces of cannabis and a blood- alcohol level of 163 milligrams, just over twice the legal limit.

À l'approche du temps des fêtes, les usines géantes outre-frontières fonctionnent à pleine vitesse afin d'offrir aux Québécois des piles monstrueuses de produits bon marché fabriqués au détriment de la main-d'œuvre canadienne.

Cette année sera différente. Cette année, les Québécois doivent penser aux leurs, penser à tous les Québécois. Il n'y a plus d'excuse...
