We are a small farm near Perth, Ontario and we grow humanely raised livestock, specializing in pasture raised heritage pork.  Our pigs have a life of exploring the forests and fields, rooting for snacks, eating fresh grasses, and basking in the sun. They're rotated through the woods and ALWAYS have fresh ground to play with. Brad and I both love animals and so their health and happiness is our main motivation for farming. The outcome of this natural lifestyle is the best tasting meat with incredible nutrition gained from the sun, fresh air and lots of lush grasses (and fun!). We never use growth hormones or antibiotics. The pork is sold by the 1/2, 1/4 or sampler size share, as well as by the individual cut. We also grow pasture raised, free range turkeys with the same philosophy. They are ready for purchase at Thanksgiving and Christmas. You can find us at the Perth Farmers Market or you can order from us directly. Delivery available.

Products: 
pastured heritage pork (ground, roasts, ribs, sausage, bacon, pork chops etc), pastured free range turkey, eggs

Michael and Noelle began raising Katahdin sheep in 2009 with their Great Pyrenees livestock protection dogs on their 50 acre farm in Tay Valley Township just west of Perth.  Chickens and geese soon followed. All the animals are raised using non-certified organic methods including pasture rotation.  Michael has worked hard to improve the quality of pasture using green manures and manure from the animals.  We recognize that the quality of what we feed our animals determines their health.

Sales are from the farm gate or through referrals from the Two Rivers Food Hub.  Please call or email to make sure we aren't in a back field and miss your visit.

See what is happening on the farm on our Facebook page - Dancing Dog Farm.

Products: 
Generally available: non-certified organic lamb.  Seasonally available: chicken, geese, and eggs.

Welsh Hill Farm's philosophy is to grow healthy and flavourful meats for our family and the local community.  Our 170 acre farm is located just outside Smiths Falls, Ontario and is under an hour to downtown Ottawa. Right now we are producing grass-fed beef and organic pastured eggs.  Pastured woodland pork and honey are some of the other products we hope to provide in the future. We use sustainable methods of farming that improve the land, keep our animals in optimum condition and do not result in a product that is too costly for the average consumer. Please visit welshhill.com to see what is new on the farm and to get more information.

With our young family in tow, we have taken on a lovely 93-acre farm on a fertile hillside roughly half way between Perth and Lanark, just east of Balderson.

Since the summer of 2013, we have sold eggs from hens provided certified organic feed (and free-ranged on grass and bugs in the growing season). This year we have a limited number of broiler chickens raised on pasture as well as grass-fed beef.

Our practices are consciously in line with those required by organic certifying bodies, although we have not certified to date due to the cost.

We are members of the Canadian Organic Growers and are registered with the National Farmers' Union.

 

Products: 
non-certified organic beef, chickens and eggs; hopefully vegetables in the future

Lisa and her husband Rob have owned Knotty Bottoms Farm since 2009.  At first there was only 1 acre of cleared land for planting next to the house, the rest in various stages of brush.  Now, the couple are proud to have 50 acres of cleared land for both pasture and planting, as well as 70 acres of woods, part of which is now used for a small sugar bush operation and firewood.
Their growing practices are down to earth, using their diesel tractor and sweat to manage the weeds rather than using pesticides and herbicides, to produce a product they are proud to sell and use on their own table as well.  While they do most of the work themselves, their twin girls love to help pick up rocks from the field, not to mention sampling whatever they can pull off the plants.
This year their CSA is being expanded to 12 shares for farm fresh vegetables and they plan on expanding to a flock of 300 meat birds.  This year they are also proud to begin selling maple syrup at the farm gate!  In future years they hope to be able to offer grass fed lamb and beef, as well as pasture fed pork.  Knotty Bottoms Produce and Poultry can be purchased either by a CSA subscription or at the Farm Gate and Maple Syrup will be available this spring at the Farm Gate.

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!

The best thing about raising lamb and sheep is the connection we make with our customers. It is great to hear what is going on in their lives and it is especially gratifying to get feedback on our lamb" declares the Natural Lamb team. Our lambs are raised by their mothers in open air and sunshine on lush, rotating pastures.
This lifestyle results in leaner, "heart healthy" meat that is popular with consumers. Their product was a prize winner at the 2007 Feast of Fields.
The Salisburys carefully manage their respective flocks so that Natural Lamb can provide customers with a year-round supply of meat. This includes prepared specialties such as samosas, lamb pie and shepherds pie which are available at Christmas and Easter.

Elmark Farms is a 4th generation 230-acre family farm. It began as a conventional 40 cow dairy farm and now produces pastured poultry (chickens and turkeys) as well as pork, lamb, beef, and eggs. The rotational grazing system also includes custom grazing of cattle and horses from other farms.
Dan is passionate about intensive grazing and its benefits. Intensive grazing is a method of rotational pasturing that has a high animal-to-acreage ratio. When managed properly, the animals are moved every 12 to 24 hours to a new plot so as not to be detrimental to either the land or the animals. In addition, since most worms are species-specific (i.e. horse worms have no impact on cattle), by grazing different animals over the same ground, less harmful worms are ingested. Organic matter in the soil also increases which translates into increased water holding capacity. This is especially important in Elmark Farms' shallow soils. And finally, this method of husbandry allows the animals to be in their natural habitat while being protected from predators. As a result, Dan finds that the land is able to give the same production value without the inputs he used to need, and the nutrients stay—or increase--in the soil.
Modeling his methods after those of Joel Salatin, a pioneer in grass based farming and people friendly food, Dan believes strongly that in allowing animals to behave in the way nature intended produces healthier, more contented animals. For example, chickens love to scratch in the dirt to find bugs, horses like to continuously graze, and cows find comfort in lying down in a grassy pasture.
In the end, rotational grazing produces a better product and the animals, environment, and families benefit.

Products: 
grass-fed chicken and turkeys, pork and eggs. Order meat at the beginning of the season (March - April). Custom grazing, Gallagher electric fence supplies, riding lessons and boarding.
