Indian Creek Orchard Gardens is a organic micro farm, intimate in scale. 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 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

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!

Kricklewood Farm is owned by Dale Horeczy and Brad Daily and had its beginnings in Atlanta Georgia with a backyard hen house, beehive and a goat cheese making workshop at a local goat farm.  It is now home to a small herd of Nubian goats and pot-bellied pigs, heritage chickens and Muscovy ducks on 90 acres southeast of Perth.

The latest addition to Kricklewood Farm is our own Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil  with the planting of 15 acres in 2012.   The high oleic oil is made from 100 % pure sunflower seed grown on our farm without  herbicides  or pesticides.  The seeds are processed with care in small batches using the traditional Cold Press method to preserve the unique flavour and freshness.  Pure, unrefined and additive free, it adds the delicious taste of sunflower to any dish.  It is available in 500 ml bottles at the farm gate and at several stores and markets in the area.

In addition to Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil, we offer Goat Milk Soap, Goat Milk Fudge, Free Range Eggs, Seasonal Produce and cut flowers.

We also offer on farm tours and workshops where participants can learn how to milk a goat the old fashioned way and to make goat milk soap, fudge and cheese.
