Annual survey of vegetable acreages

  • CA BWGPL PH26619

Community : Bradford

Description : The latest crop statistics show that the total onion acreage in the Bradford and District Marshes was down, as was the potato acreage while the area of carrots and lettuce increase. The number of muck vegetable growers continue the steady downward trend of the last twenty years These statistics are compiled each year by the staff of the O.M.A.F. Dairy, Fruit and Vegetable Industries Inspection Branch in Bradford (commonly known as the Bradford Inspection Office). Judy Sturgeon and Barry Roberts would like to thank all of the growers for their cooperation. The onion acreage in Bradford was over 200 acres lower than in 1992, but there were 67 more acres of transplanted onions. This is not surprising, considering the disappointing onion year we had last year and the predictions that 1993 would be more the same. The area devoted to potatoes on muck soil was down by more than 200 acres as well. The carrot and lettuce acreage increased about 80 acres each to make up for some of the difference. The onion and carrot acreages have gone up and down during the past 8-10 years, but there are a few trends in some of the other crops that are revealed by the statistics. The celery acreage has dropped steadily since 1987 and there have been increases in oriental vegetables. There were approximately 228 acres of oriental vegetables in 1990; now the figure is 480 acres. The average farm size this year was 58 acres, but two thirds of the growers operated farms that were 50 acres or less.

Arboretum opens...

Description : It's taken only two years for the Bond Head & District Horticultural Society to transform a barren piece of ground, into the Scotch Settlement Arboretum. The plot of land, adjacent to Highway 400 at the 5th Line of Bradford West Gwillimbury, was a stony, weed-covered plot when the first tree was planted in 1994. On June 22nd, as a piper played in the background, Bradford West Gwillimbury Mayor Frank Jonkman cut the ribbon, officially opening the Arboretum - which now contains 145 trees, as well as flower bed, and groomed pathways. There are ash trees, maples, oaks, black walnut, hawthorn and elm, pines, fir and spruce, taking root in the re-worked and fertilized soil. The Horticultural Society hopes to plant examples of every native Canadian species of tree. The idea is to create not only an attractive park, but provide a living memorial to the early settlers, who colonized the Scotch Settlement circa 1820. Members of the Tree Planting Committee had praise for the "generosity and community spirit" of those who have contributed to the Arboretum, from Bill Patton, Parks & Recreation Department employee who hand-crafted a wooden sign in his spare time, to all of those who have donated and dedicated a tree.
