About Us
We have recently moved to the valley from Guelph, where we out-grew our space with fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, beehives and a large vegetable garden. Now we have enough room to indulge our appetite for growing lots of wholesome food and tending our livestock partners. We purchased a team of Belgian draft horses last year to help manage the chores involved in creating a sustainable market garden and caring for pasture-based laying hens (beautiful black and white Plymouth Barred Rock), heritage Beltsville Small White turkeys, pigs and Katahdin sheep.

We encourage people to come and visit the farm and see how we steward this land and the creatures under our care. Bring your families, a camera, a picnic lunch if you like, and come enjoy fresh air and sunshine.

The sourdough bread contains flour, water, sourdough starter and salt. Various flavoured breads may contain herbs or dried apples or vegetables from the farm. Some may contain purchased nuts or raisins that will be specified in the name.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Our garden is cared for by ecological practices that encompass the whole environment and natural networks. We use manure and green manures, cover crops, and natural amendments to keep the garden healthy. No chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used. Permaculture techniques keep the farm habitat welcoming for wildlife while allowing us to strive for efficiencies in the cultivated areas. Our livestock graze the pasture within fencing to keep out predators while the use of draft horses will reduce our reliance on non-renewable fuel.

The sourdough bread is lovingly made in small, artisanal batches in the farm kitchen. Baked goods are made with high-quality ingredients only, including real butter and chocolate.

The honey is raw, unpasteurized and from a diversity of floral sources on the farm. There is very little surrounding agriculture so there is no contamination from conventional field crops.

Additional Information
We sell brown eggs from pasture-based chickens at the farm and we can be found Friday afternoons at the Eganville Farmers' Market from mid June to Thanksgiving weekend.
