The deWit Family

Thamesford, Oxford County

What do you grow/raise on your farm?
Organic turkeys, organic corn, soybeans, wheat, hay, pasture and run a flock of 200 sheep.

How long have you been farming organically?
6 years.

What is most important to you about farming organically?
It is a method of farming that would allow my family to make a living from farming even with a smaller land base. The way we farm now is very sustainable - the sheep and turkeys work well together with the cropping.

Do you have any advice for folks who are considering getting into organic farming?
Take it slow, and I believe it essential to have livestock on your farm if you will be doing organic cropping to supply needed nutrients.

What is your favourite chicken dish?
Grilled on the BBQ! But don’t forget about turkey!! I love to use organic ground turkey as a healthier option to replace ground beef in many dishes.

What is your favourite way to enjoy eggs?
For breakfast, on toast.
