Highland Gem Farm is run by Erin Richan and Mac McCall-Glover, two young farmers reviving the ol' family farmstead in McDonalds Corners in addition to renting land at Elphin Gold Organic Farm. They specialize in high- quality pastured chicken, pork, eggs, and non-certified organic seasonal produce, focused on extending access to produce in the winter months. Highland Gem serves the local community through two Community Support Agriculture (CSA) programs: Protein CSA and Winter Vegetable CSA as well as the Perth Farmers' Markets.

Highland Gem Farm produces high-quality, traditionally-raised farm products, without the use of Genetically Modified Organisms, hormones, or non-emergency antibiotics, while maintaining land integrity using environmentally sensitive and soil generating farming practices.

Please contact with questions or inquiries!

Highland Gem Farm was established in 2017.

C'est La Vie Farm is a small family run farm located in the picturesque Lanark Highlands, 45 minutes from Ottawa.  We grow organic heirloom vegetables, salad mix, greens and fresh herbs.  We are happy to offer home delivered CSA shares which also include bouquets of our beautiful sunflowers.  In 2012 Brent and Nathalie visited this farm and it was love at first sight.  With two ponds on 50 acres, open fields, apple orchards, forested land, a charming old farmhouse and two log barns, it was exactly what they had always dreamt of.  That summer they started a small family vegetable garden and continued to develop the soil using gentle organic farming principles and loads of organic mushroom compost.  We truly believe that the best tasting and most nutrient dense vegetables come from healthy, well balanced soils, so in 2015 we decided to join the Manotick Farmers Market to start sharing our organically grown produce with others. Based on the feedback we received and how much it meant to us to see others enjoying fresh, local produce, it seemed only natural to start our CSA program.  If you have ever thought that you might like to try going local then we invite you to give us a call, check out our website or join us on Facebook.   We look forward to hearing from you!

We are a diverse small family farm offering a variety of products to our loyal customers. In the summer we produce a wide variety of non certified garden vegetables with a higher concentration on garlic, both braided and loose, and sweet corn.
We truly enjoy our honeybees both for their incredible pollination capability and the exquisite honey they give us. We extract our honey twice per season giving us the opportunity to sell both spring and fall unpasteurized honey .
We have free range chickens giving us a rainbow of colours. Our customers enjoy seeing white, brown, pink, green and blue eggs in their carton and the fresh free range flavour of the eggs is incomparable!
In the spring we tap a limited number of Maple trees and have a quantity of maple syrup available as supplies last.
My pride and joy are our Boer Goats. Our farm raises both purebred and percentage Boers. The Boer is a hardy meat breed and are easy keepers. Ours only require a lean to for winter conditions and are healthy and friendly. We sell them as purebreds, registered if requested or commercial for meat or hobby. Spring kids arrive in early April and it is optimal to reserve one early . We currently are adding red and spotted genetics to our Boers for eye appeal.
Our firewood is usually preordered and is well seasoned mixed hardwood. Occasionally we have some available.
Everything we produce is the hard work of our own family. We are very happy with what we produce which makes the hard work involved so very worth it!

The story of Ravensfield begins with the European settlement of this area in the 1840s and 50s. The rocky Canadian Shield soil was forest-covered: white pine, oak, maple. For the immigrants trying to establish a farm, the mighty trees were a serious problem: they needed cleared land, and the easiest way they knew to deal with the forest was to set fire to it.
This style of agriculture has been practiced since antiquity. From a present day perspective, the ecological cost to the ecosystem is far too great to justify it. But settlers were desperate for food and unable to adapt quickly from the version of agriculture they had known in Europe. So the forest fires in Lanark County burned, some literally for years.
A forgiveness is needed here. As humans we are able to act quickly and have immense impact on ecosystems. Our brains, much as we think so highly of  them, seem less capable of foreseeing the consequences of our actions, and our hearts are not always large enough to care about the bigger picture, or the future, or other humans, present and future, or other species.
The settlers soon learned that the soil under the oaks was thin. Rock close to the surface, crops that grew well only for a few years and thereafter dwindled as the soil nutrients were used up. Yet the human imperative continued: a farm of 100 acres was expected to have 12 cows (plus offspring) if the farmer was to be respected in society.

Only 30 minutes from Ottawa and 15 minutes from Carleton Place, we raise organic beef (Simmental), goat and lamb in a very peaceful setting on close to 200 acres of pasture, off the grid. During the milder seasons, our animals live of our land. This farm has been organic since 1972.
We have a very unique farm operation where all the animals are roaming freely and are very tame, including Freddy, the pot bellied pig. We are creating an educational environment for schools and offer summer camps to teach young and old about a healthy life style and organic food sources.
A respect for animals and producing food naturally is what drives our farm. We practice organic farming because it is a philosophy and it's the way Robert was raised on his family's farm in Switzerland. Our farm is open to the public for visits and long walks.
You can purchase our products at the farm gate or the Carleton Place and Stittsville Farmers’ Market. Our meat and cheese are very popular.  We are long time members of the Canadian Organic Growers. Please call for more info about our products and cow shares.
