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

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.

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!

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.

Maplelane Farm has been farmed organically for more than 40 years.  Though Non-Certified, we do farm in accordance with the standards for organic certification.  We, Nick and Hilary Moore, took over Maplelane Farm in 2009.   Hilary has been farming organically for 18 years, running Teamwork CSA for 13 years.  Nick is a furniture maker first, farmer second.  We make our living from the farm and the shop.  

We currently raise Tamworth and Birkshire/Tamworth cross pigs.  Our Tamworth pigs are all registered and breeding stock is avilable.  Our pigs are fed Certified Organic grain and are on pasture or fed our own hay, depending on the time of year.  We have pork available by the half or whole animal as well as by the piece. 

We also raise honey bees.  Hilary has been keeping bees for over a decade now, without the use of any chemical treatments.  We do not heat our honey, nor do we use heated tools, leaving the honey has raw as it gets.

And finally, we grow vegetables.

All of our products are available at the Almonte Farmer's Market or from our farm.  For more information please visit our website.
