Who we are
We are the Smith family. Our farm has been in the family for three generations. We are the first family members to grow vegetables commercially. We also have a sawmill, a small flock of chickens and a small herd of cattle.
We moved to the family farm in 2017 with a vision of feeding our family fresh organic vegetables, fresh farm eggs, and wholesome meat. Animal lovers to the core, we raise our chickens and cows exactly how they should live, outside with room to roam. We move them to fresh pasture daily to ensure they always have fresh grass to munch on and new bugs and seeds to eat. This farming method also improves the quality of the land too by spreading the fertility they provide in their manure, so it is truly a win-win for all!
The farm’s market garden provides seasonal veggies grown organically and are picked fresh providing a high nutritional value as well as superior taste. As a family farm, we care about the food we eat and the food we provide to our customers.
We believe in preventing the need for pesticides and herbicides by using natural alternative measures to ensure our crops are pest-free. We manually weed with hand tools, we use crop rotation and mainly use insect row covers to stop the bugs from getting to the crop. In addition, our pets Salem and Gunner are the resident rodent controllers in the gardens!
We believe in regenerative farming methods that rebuild the soil and allow the farm to become naturally more productive over time. We view nature as our partner rather than something to be dominated and only choose farming practices that enhance the farm ecosystem as a whole. The wild plants and animals share this ecosystem with us and our farm is home to an abundance of wildlife including the snapping turtle and Bobolink which are protected species in Ontario.
Our goal is to strengthen the relationship between the consumer and the small local farmer because as the saying goes “the only way you can be 100% sure of your food source is to be on a first-name basis with the farmer”. We encourage customers to ask questions or visit the farm to see for themselves our farming practices in action.
We feel honoured to be farming in sync with nature growing great-tasting food that is healthy for us and giving all the animals that call our farm home the life they deserve.
Our hard work to become a circular business and support the local community is paying off! We are proud to share that we have been awarded a stamp for the Harvest Impact Fund from the Innovation Guelph Seeding Our Food Future Program.
