Naked Oats Harvest

Welcome to Adagio Acres.  We are an organic family farm in Manitoba. We love putting seeds in the ground, watching them grow, and sharing the harvest!   We believe that food should be a reminder and an excuse to slow down, to find a relaxed 'adagio' tempo that provides time for family, community, and the things that have real value to us.  A warm bowl of oats in the morning as the sun rises instead of a drive-through muffin, stirring up a bowl of cookies with our kids instead of reaching into a plastic package for a factory-shaped sugar-sphere.   For us, a slower tempo means re-imagining agriculture as a practice that makes sense for our family and for those around us.  It means taking time to consider the needs of the land that we live on, one handful of dirt at a time.

  • There's been a lot of oats (and a lot of oat dust...arrggg...) moved into our bins this past week. Farmers always ask us how many bushels to the acre we harvested, but we prefer the unit of measure of "bowls of oatmeal" rather than bushels. So after a successful harvest we now have oats for about 250,000 bowls of porridge. Guess what's for supper kids...

  • It's a perfect afternoon for cutting down our oats...coincidentally also a perfect afternoon to shut down the tractor for a few minutes to enjoy a picnic in the middle of the field! Grateful for the shade of this stately old oak tree...

  • A long day in the mill fixing the steel-cutter, an evening trying to make friends with the wasps who have made their home on our swather (while the kids played hide-and-go-seek in the oat field!), and the second evening shift unloading a bin of oats...and home for supper by moonlight. Trying to find a few moments of slower "adagio" tempo in the midst of it all...

  • Our oats are starting to ripen! They can't be harvested until the stalks die and the kernels dry out, but they're most delicious to eat straight off the plant when they're still soft...
