Simple Riches

About US

Simple Riches was started in 2021 on land rented at Green being farm.  Alex Ritchie and Amanda Deschambeau started the market garden with considerable help from Cameron Couchman, friends, family and an amazing community of organic growers on concession 14.  The season was filled with a comedy of errors, but lots were learned. There were lots of laughs, a few cries and some pretty awesome vegetables for the first year of growing.

 

This past year we moved to our own property and scrambled all winter long to get as much ready for Spring as possible. This meant constructing a greenhouse, building a cooler, and designing and building an irrigation system. It was a season that felt like we were always just getting things done in the nick of time and then the next pressing deadline was imminently looming. Maybe that is just farming. We were fortunate to have Jacqueline join our team this past season and we definitely could not have pulled off what we did without her amazing work ethic and dedication. 

 

This year we are excited to build on last year’s success and also maybe be a little ahead of the needs of the garden. Here’s to hoping! We look forward to seeing you at the farmers market or as a CSA Member.
