Ferme Ouellette Farm's picture

4248 Wolf Grove Road in Middleville, Ontario (Lanark Highlands)

Ferme Ouellete has a long history. First established in 1852 by the Mather family, Patrick and Caroline Ouellette purchased the Century Farm in 2002, and immediately began setting down roots.
Patrick and Caroline believe strongly that traditional farming is the best way to do business – best for humans, best for animals, and best for the environment. Caroline, who comes from a long line of farmers, credits her mother and grandmother with instilling in her a deep understanding and respect for nature that is reflected in everything she does.  Patrick’s niche is his horses. He readily admits he would rather work with his team than on his tractor and says he finds peace and quiet in the sound of their breathing. Patrick’s respect and fondness for his horses can work magic and the horses always respond and reciprocate.
The love and dedication Caroline and Patrick put in everything they do is evident to anyone who visits Ferme Ouellette Farm. Farmgate sales by appointment.

Pasture-raised beef cuts (frozen, sold individually).

In 2007, Wendy Banks and her husband Rick Trudeau created a unique delivery service providing area restaurants and individuals with locally produced food and value added products.  The business developed as Wendy became more concerned for the future of area farmers. She felt compelled to better inform consumers about their food sources.  Combined with Rick’s experience as a courier, they are able to serve an extensive area stretching from Merrickville to Picton. 
Responding to consumer demand led the local couple to transform a school house built in the late 1800’s into an old fashioned country market fittingly called Wendy’s Country Market. The 1100 square foot building on Wendy’s parent’s farm, Corn Acre Farms, is filled with food grown and produced locally. The list of products is impressive and includes items from over 40 local farmers and artisans. They welcome and will answer any questions regarding the production practices used for any of the products they sell, because…”we care about what you eat.”
Wendy understands better than most, the importance of healthy food sources as she deals daily with a compromised immune system and multiple sensitivities. Wendy and Rick who grow a wide variety of chemical free vegetables and herbs on their own farm look forward to providing healthy wholesome food for your family.

Locally-produced beef, bison, chicken, lamb, turkey, and cheese, eggs, in season veggies, gluten-free products, bake goods, syrup, honey, fresh fudge, and homemade preserves.  Delivery available throughout the year.
