About Us
Hedgeview Farm is a market garden grown on my family's former dairy farm. I started our market garden back in 2008 after returning from a few years of post-University work in Europe.
We offer a CSA veggie basket program (directly from the farm) during the summer months and attend the Carp Farmers' Market on Saturdays from May - October.
The garden is generally ran by 1 person (Brenna Jansen) along with occasional help for bean picking, garlic cleaning, market sales, etc.
We grow around 100 varieties of vegetables and some fruits as well as a dandy patch of award winning garlic.
My grandparents first came to the farm as refugee/immigrants back in the 1950s and my children are the 4th generation on our farm. The farm and the food we grow means the world to my family and we are grateful for the support and enthusiasm from our community here in Renfrew County.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Our farm operates as close as possible to the Organic Production Systems, General Principles, and Management Practices regulations issued by the Canadian Government for Organic Farms.While not certified, we do use organic practises which means NO use of chemicals/products from the prohibited substances list.
So what do we do?
For INSECT CONTROL we use fine mesh netting, crop rotation, and hand pick certain bugs like potato beetle when needed.
For WEED CONTROL we use shallow cultivation, smother crops, dense plantings to shade out weeds, and often transplant into re-useable greenhouse ground tarps.
For SOIL FERTILITY we use crop rotation, pelleted hen manure (approved for organic production), compost, and nitrogen fixing cover crops like peas and clover.
For SOIL TILTH we avoid tillage when possible, and add loads of organic matter through compost and cover crops like rye, buckwheat and oats.
If you have any questions about our practices, you can reach Brenna here:
