Last few days for our local asparagus this year Picking Asparagus

Our asparagus picking season has come to an end. We will have asparagus in our Country Store for just a few more days.  Please see below for why we need to stop picking our asparagus plants.

 

Visits to our farmThank you to all that came to our asparagus festival. We had a great time showing off our very unique asparagus operation and answering many questions. June 1 & 2, 2013 are the dates for next years festival on our farm.

 

Granddaughter picking peasMark your calendars for August 11 & 12. We are having another open house (no admission charge for this one) We will be touring everyone past our asparagus fields and out to our pea patch where you can sample peas straight off the vines. This is a great opportunity to teach your kids where their food is coming from.

 

Visit countrydrive.ca for many other great things to see and do in our area and visit our website EdgarFarms.com for details about our farm and our open houses.

 

 

Why we need to stop picking our asparagus plantsAsparagus is a long lived perennial plant if we look after it. Every time we pick aAsparagus Fern spear, the root sends up another one. This takes strength out of the plants. We monitor the thickness of the spears and when the majority are very thin, this is an indication that the plants are getting stressed. Also, the plants need eight weeks of frost free weather in their fern stage after we quit picking.

The picture is of our asparagus taken about 10 days after we stopped picking last year. The spears that we harvest, if allowed to grow develop very quickly into the fern in the picture. The two adorable little girls are our granddaughters.

Asparagus Recipes    

Meal in the Field

Looking for something different to do with your asparagus?

 

We have several of our favorite recipes on our Web Site EdgarFarms.com at the blog sections under recipes.  asparagus. Some of our favorites are Asparagus with Blue Cheese and Randy’s Steak Neptune.

Our Country StoreFarm Store

We will be picking peas very soon, hopefully by July 6 or so and they will be in our on farm country store. This is a great time of year to eat locally with tons of new veggies coming on. Delicious new super sweet baby peas, snow peas, baby potatoes, kohl rabi, lettuce to name a few will be in our Country Store very shortly.

 

Our shelves are always stocked with a great selection of home made preserves. Also, be sure and check out our display freezer for home made soups, pies and our home raised hormone and antibiotic free angus beef.

 

Our Country Store is located on our farm just 10 km. west of Innisfail off QE#2 on the Cottonwood Road all on pavement.

 

Open 8 AM- 8 PM daily May 15 – Sept 30

Please visit our website www.edgarfarms.com

 

Pea FieldWhat do we do after Asparagus  

Since we are known for our asparagus,  our customers have the perception that this is the only crop we grow and we take the other 10 months off. Not so!

We own a traditional grain and cattle farm as well as many other vegetable crops.

Cow and calfRandy is our primary cattle man. He feeds and looks after the cows. All winter, he fees the cows every day.We start calving our 120 cows the middle  of February. All hands are on deck for calving season, especially if the weather is cold as a freshly born baby calf will not survive in the cold.  That is the time of year that I enjoy the most. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a baby calf born, up and sucking within an hour.  We offer our home raised hormone and antibiotic free, stress free, humanely raised red angus beef for sale at our on farm Country Store and at The Calgary Farmer’s Market at the Innisfail Growers booth.

 

We start seeding our market garden peas every spring as soon as we can find a little Peasdry area in our field. This is usually around April 10. Planting many different varieties every week until Father’s Day ensures a consistent supply all summer. W start planting yellow and green beans about May 20, We are busy weeding and looking after our large veggie plot all spring when we are harvesting asparagus.   As soon as we stop picking asparagus, the peas will be ready to start picking and we will pick until the first frost in the fall.

 

Innisfail Growers LogoAll of our other market garden veggies are marketed through our marketing co-op, Innisfail Growers Co-op, that we have belonged to since 1993 and are founding members of. You can find us at many Central Alberta Farmers Markets from Sherwood Park to Calgary.

 

All spring and summer we are also very busy in our commercial kitchen making many jars of asparagus pickles, asparagus relish and a very large selection of other preserves such as pickled snow peas and rhubarb relish.

 

Airseeder & TractorDoug is our grain farmer and he starts planting the grain crops early in May. We have about 900 acres of grain crops that he looks after all spring and summer.

 

Come September, just as our market garden crops are coming to an end, our grain crops need to be harvested. Unlike all of the veggies that are hand picked, we get our grain combine out of the shed and the grain crops are machine harvested with our grain combine.

Who we areAdopt a RoadEdgar Farms  is a 6 generation family farm west of Innisfail Alberta. Back in 1986, inspiration to start diversifying into the locally grown consumer direct market first came from tasting the intenseness of the flavour of asparagus grown in our family garden and the desire to market direct to consumers.

We grow market garden peas, sugar snap and snow peas, yellow and green beans and rhubarb as well as  asparagus. We are members of Innisfail Growers Co-op and atttend many farmers markets seasonally. We operate an on farm Country Store as well.

Asparagus Soup

Posted by with No Comments

 

Cream of Asparagus Soup

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 c. EDGAR FARMS asparagus odds & uneven chopped into 1 cm. pieces

(5 lb. of  asparagus odds and uneven’s should yield 2 batches)

2 c. boiling water and 1 Tbsp. chicken soup base or

2 c. good chicken stock

½ tsp. salt

2 cloves garlic or ½ tsp. garlic powder

1 large onion chopped or 1 tsp. onion powder

 

If using onion and garlic, saute in oil.  Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add rest of ingredients and boil just until asparagus softens. Puree in blender. Puree may be frozen at this point and will keep frozen up to 1 year in a well sealed container.  If making soup from frozen puree, blending in a blender again after thawing will make a smoother textured soup.

 

To serve, heat puree until boiling, add 1 cup milk to 1 cup puree and heat just until hot, not boiling. Cream or half & half may be used if a creamier soup is desired.  Pour into serving dishes and sprinkle with cheddar cheese and freshly ground pepper. Adding a little lemongrass is delicious as well.

Picking Asparagus in the rain

Posted by with No Comments

With all the rain we have had lately some of the days we have to take our Quads and trailers to the field as it is so muddy. Then by the afternoon the sun comes out and it is a beautiful day, but you never know what the day will bring. Our team picks all day, seven days a week in all weather conditions except lightning. Elna doesn’t want anyone out in the field with lightning in the vacinity so if there is any lightning around she goes to the field and chases them all back to the yard.

Our local Asparagus this weekAsparagus growing in fieldWe are picking our asparagus field daily. The yields are a little better than last week.We have had several very cold nights with the low temeratures dipping down to very near freezing. Fortunately, we have managed to miss any frost.The asparagus that we grow in our cool climate has an amazing intense flavor and is very sweet.

When we will stop picking our asparagusWe hand pick our asparagus field daily starting whenever in May the soil warms enough to encourage the roots to start sending up tender delicious shoots. The picking season is very short, we will only be picking until about the end of June.

Every time we pick a spear, the root sends up another one. This takes strength out of the plants. When all of the spears are very thin, that is an indication that the plants are getting stressed. Also, the plants need eight weeks of frost free weather in their fern stage after we quit picking.

 

We will be stopping picking about the end of June if all goes well.

Breakfast Television

I was invited to go on Breakfast television in Calgary this morning. what a fun experience. I made:

Grilled Prosciutto & Provolone Asparagus Bundles

 

This is our daughter, Angie’s favorite asparagus recipe. It is Breakfast Televisionvery easy, but also very impressive.

 

24        Edgar Farms asparagus spears

2 Tbsp.    extra virgin olive oil

¼ tsp.  freshly ground pepper

12        thin slices prosciutto

12        slices provolone or havarti cheese

 

Preheat BBQ or grill to high & lightly oil.  Toss asparagus with olive oil. Wrap 2 asparagus spears with a piece of cheese, then a piece of prosciutto, allowing ends of asparagus to be exposed. Place on grill, close lid and cook, turning often until asparagus turns bright green and is tender-crisp.

Alternatively, place on cookie sheet and bake uncovered at 450°F for 6 to 9 min. rolling around a few times.

Who we are:

Edgar Farms is a 6th generation family farm in central Alberta. Back in 1986, inspiration to start diversifying into the locally-grown, consumer-direct market first came from tasting the intenseness of the flavor of asparagus grown in our family garden and the desire to market direct to consumers. No one else was growing asparagus in our weather-challenged climate so we gave it a try. We now harvest a 21 acre patch of asparagus every spring which, due to our unique cool Alberta spring nights and optimum soil conditions, has incredible sweetness and amazing flavor.

The big white blanket that is in  the picture is a cover we put on to protect from frost and encourage growth. I have lifted a corner of the row cover to show the pea tendrils. We hope to be harvesting them within a few days and they will be in our Country Store.  Pea tendrils are delicious in salads or stir frys.
We could not use row cover on the asparagus. It grows much too fast and the field is very, very large.

Asparagus Field NewsUnfortunately we have had cool weather all week so the asparagus field has not grown very much. we did have a small area on a hill that we were planning on picking today for you at Old Strathcona tomorrow, but:

Frost Last NightFrost on the asparagusThe temperature dipped down to -3 which was colder than forecast last night.

In the picture I am holding a spear that is not frozen and the three in the background look transparent – they are frozen.

 

This frost does not hurt the crown and it will be sending up many new tips just as soon as we get some warm weather and no frost.

Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market
Asparagus pickles
This Saturday, May 12, we will be at Old Strathcona Farmers Market with our asparagus pickles, asparagus relish, asparagus soup and asparagus cookbooks.  Please stop by for a visit and a taste of our wonderful asparagus relish.
We should have some fresh asparagus next week, weather permitting.

We could not use row cover on the asparagus. It grows much too fast and the field is very, very large.

Frost last night

Posted by with No Comments


Unfortunately, it got down to -3 last night so any aspargus that was up is frozen. The one I am holding is not froze, see the difference, the three in the background are transparent from the frost.

The frost does not hurt the roots of the plants and there will be lots of new tips poping up just as soon as we get a couple of warm days.
This is why asparagus is not meant to be grown in this climate.
