Welcome!

“Know Your Grower” ~ Interest in Local Food has been gaining momentum in the past few years. More and more people are paying attention to where their food was grown or produced. Our family farm has been providing fresh vegetables to the Regina area for 3 generations. For us, the “Local Food Movement” is a family tradition. Families trust Lincoln Gardens Farm to supply fresh produce as well as provide a fun weekend destination for their children and family members!

Many of our customers ask about the history of the farm and what all is involved in growing the food they eat. As always, a visit to the farm and a chance to speak directly with us, your food providers, is encouraged. This blog also provides information, photos and stories about the farm and our growing practices. We hope it will give readers a glimpse into our lives and the daily happenings of Lincoln Gardens.

We will post info about food politics, events in the area and anything else we find interesting. Check back often as we will try to update this site regularly.
