History

Our farm is located in Ottawa’s Greenbelt, a publicly owned 20,000-hectare expanse of land including wetlands, farmlands and forests surrounding the Canadian capital.

In 2012, the 167 acre farm was leased as part of the National Capital Commission sustainable farmland program. Since then the farm aims to provide a food production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. Part of the mission is to teach and share the benefits of naturally grown food to the extended community and to share ideas and practices with like minded people through community work and gardens.

We raise healthy and happy animals such as goats, ducks, chickens and turkeys. All animals roam freely across many different grazing pastures around the farm. In addition to open grazing on our fields we also treat our animals to leftover farm-grown fruits, vegetables and sorghum as well as alfalfa and hay.
