Midmore Farm owners Ward and Jo-Anne Middleton of Morinville were one of more than 60 farms participating in the Alberta Open Farm Days Sunday. Their farm, located just outside Morinville, became certified organic in 1999 and some of their crops include wheat, barley, rye, peas, canola, flax, and milk thistle. Their organic grain and custom grazing farm received numerous guests from the region. They also grow brown peas which is used by the Mountain Meadows Food processing plant in Legal to make NoNuts pea butter.
