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!

We moved to Seanic Farms in 2003, in search of a more peaceful way of life, and began transitioning it into an environmentally friendly and conscientious operating farm.  The farm had not been operated for many years and required buildings/fencing to be repaired, and land to be cleared to create new pastures.  We researched a number of different types of livestock and settled on the gentle and hardy Highland cattle we had first seen in the United Kingdom.  In 2008, our first five heifers and bull arrived, and currently our herd consists of between 20-30 head.  Our desire for healthy and wholesome food and the enjoyment of gardening lead us to venturing into the world of market gardening in 2014.  Even though we are not "organic certified", we use the same "organic principles and practices,"  and following our first successful year we have expanded our garden to include more variety of fresh vegetables and delicious low fat, grass-fed beef for our customers.

We are excited to inform all our valued customers that beginning the spring of 2016, we will be offering our very own CSA weekly fresh vegetable basket for a 18 week session.  There are only 5 shares left and you can order a half or a full share.  We can also offer grass fed beef as part of your CSA package.  Pick up will be at the farm on Tuesday's and at the Perth Farmers Market Saturday mornings.  For further information contact Carole or Roy 613-283-3739 or by email Seanicfarms@gmail.com

We have Farmgate Sales available all year.

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.

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!

We are a new vegetable farm operation located in Jasper, midway between Smiths Falls and Merrickville. We grow a diversity of vegetables in 3 acres of field crops and in an innovative system of heated greenhouses. This allows us to extend our season into the winter months.
Our goal is to help increase the supply of local, high-quality organic produce in Lanark County and Ottawa, particularly during the off-season. Our farm is in the process of organic certification and we adhere to the Canadian organic standards.
We sell our produce through a unique Winter Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA is a model where customers buy a share of a farm's produce up front, then receive a regular basket of food over the farm's harvest season. Bluegrass Farm offers one of the first winter CSA programs in Lanark County, delivering baskets to customers every two weeks from mid-October to mid-March. Each basket is a mix of carefully stored crops from our fall harvest, and freshly harvested greenhouse produce. We offer CSA pick-ups at our farm, in Perth and in Ottawa. Our 2015-2016 Winter CSA shares are now on sale through our website.
We also sell to restaurants and wholesale buyers.
For more information or to sign up for our CSA, please visit our website: www.bluegrassfarm.ca
