We are nestled on five acres along the shores of the Indian Creek, a small tributary of the Mississippi River bewteen Pakenham and Almonte. At Indian Creek Orchard Gardens we employ a hybrid of regenerative, agroforestry and organic farming principles. Our vegetables are sown between rows of fruit trees, bush fruits and aisles of grape vines.  We value what nature brings to the table and attempt to work with it, bringing our intervention to a minimum. We favour low tech, natural, cultural and biological practices over chemical and heavily mechanized ones.

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!

Garlic is king in Dave Cornell's garden.
Sure, he grows a wide range of other crops such as asparagus, tomatoes, green beans and rhubarb, but garlic is his primary focus - 3000 plants covering 13 different varieties.
While Dave has been an avid gardener for 40 years, it was only 20 years ago that he started growing garlic and that was just as a lark to see if he could do it. He had been moose hunting with some buddies when the topic turned to growing garlic and Dave took up the challenge of seeing if he could grow it.
"It started out as a hobby and turned into an obsession" is how Dave describes his two decades of growing garlic. Dave sells directly at farm gate as well as at the Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival held in Verona and the Lanark County Harvest Festival, located at Beckwith Park. His daughter Donna Chute uses his garlic to make jellies such as balsamic fig, cranberry onion and roasted garlic jellies - all marketed under the Ashton Station name.
The flavours of the individual varieties range from mild to strong, some bulbs contain many cloves, others have fewer but larger cloves. "I specialize in the hotter varieties of garlic," Cornell says, stating that this is where the market is these days.
Growing garlic on the scale that Dave does is virtually a full time job during the growing season because of the weeding, watering and fertilizing involved. Dave is a passionate organic gardener and while he is not certified, he does everything organically. He has four compost bins which provides him with compost. He also uses sheep manure and bone meal for fertilizer as well as grass clippings for mulch.

Located on 3/4 acres in the middle of town, Beckwith Gardens is Perth's first backyard market garden.  Andrew and Linda Gehrke, a brother and sister team and market gardeners since 2005, relocated from 'the country' to town in 2009 in an effort to minimize their dependency on fossil fuels and reduce their footprint on the Earth.  Their products are sold less than a kilometer down the street at the Perth Farmers' Market, as well as through CSA with pick-up at their house. 
Beckwith Gardens offers a full range of non-certified organic seasonal vegetables, including heritage tomatoes, salad mixes, Swiss chard, kale, garlic, beans, peas, brassicas, herbs, root crops, associated sprouts and more.  As well, Linda's delicious baked goods are not to be missed!

Welcome to Funny Duck Farms! We are a small, diverse, certified organic farm that does not use any soybeans in our animal feeds. We are striving to create a sustainable system wherein we produce all our livestock feeds on farm, and traditionally grain fed animals (like pigs and chickens) are converted to forage eating instead. Out in our pastures and woodlands are where you will find our laying hens, ducks, broilers and heritage pigs, beef & dairy cows. Pasture raised animals provide excellent, nutritious food for people without harming the land, the environment, or resorting to the use of chemicals and medications. All of our certified organic feed rations used to supplement our animals are free of soybeans. We are pleased to be Canada's only year round certified organic Whole Farm CSA. Our CSA runs 50 weeks of the year. Shares include a bit of everything grown on the farm: certified organic beef, pork, chicken, duck, lamb, all you can eat eggs, honey, maple syrup, veggies, some fruits, and herbs both culinary and medicinal. We have limited spaces for the 2016 season, please contact us if you would like to be on our waiting list.

Funny Duck Farms is a family owned and operated 224 acre farm Certified Organic by ProCert-Organic Systems.

Products: 
Our farm fresh foods are available through our Whole Farm CSA only. We also offer an Organic & Natural Food Co-op buying club. Farm tours can be arranged if you would like to learn more about how the sun is connected to the grass and soil, which are connected to the cows, chickens, and pigs, which are connected to the gardens, which are all connected to our health. Any fresher, and you’d have to slap us!
