Well, I finally got a chance to check out the family farm. Yes, it’s true. Mr. Dot Com Mogul has a family farm. It’s not my farm of course. I would be way too lazy to ever work on a farm. Give me banker’s hours any day! The farm belongs to my uncle and this is the first time I have ever seen it. In addition to checking out the farm, we also had dinner at my uncles house, which is located on the farm.
The 20 acre farm field is just a pile of dirt right now because growing season is over. When the season begins, the field grows tons of veggies for the local Toronto supermarkets and restaurants.
The Internet on the farm is by satellite and it’s pretty slow. The house had a switch in the basement to connect the computers but no wireless. Lucky for me, my mobile office includes the world’s smallest wireless router. Here are more photos.
Looking out at the 20 acre field from the back pouch of the house. It’s the biggest pile of dirt I’ve ever seen. I’m going to have to come back here in the summer so I can see it covered with veggies.
We had dinner at the house. See! I do eat at home once in a while. Notice the chicken dish on the left.
These chickens are wondering where one of their friends went. 😈
Outside the greenhouse. On the right, you can see the crates used to carry the vegetables to market.
Inside the greenhouse, baby veggies prepare for their day in the big farm field.
You can’t show pictures of a farm and not show a picture of the tractor. There were three or four other tractors in the barn.
