Eric and Sarah moved to their 100-acre farm near Smiths Falls in 2000 and put considerable work into restoring the fields and outbuildings that had been unused for decades as well as into creating a market garden plot, all using organic methods. They began selling produce at the Perth Farmers’ Market in 2001 and at the same time bought a small flock of sheep.
Though not certified, Eric and Sarah work diligently to maintain the quality of the soil through composting, mulching and organic pest control. Sheep manure is used to increase fertility in the soil and the waste from the garden goes back to the sheep. The farm is full of bees, frogs, snakes, worms, birds and butterflies that enjoy a pesticide-free environment. Farm volunteers work in exchange for learning about small-scale farming and sustainable agriculture.

Products: 

lamb, vegetables (salad, greens, beans, snow peas, beets, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, squash, cucumber and others), eggs
