What do you grow/raise on your farm?
Dairy cows that produce 100% organic grass fed milk, beef cattle, eggs, chickens, a few pigs, compost.

How long have you been farming organically?
Over 30 years.

What is most important to you about farming organically?
We want to leave the soil and surrounding habitat in better condition than when we started, to raise livestock the way nature intended without the use of artificial stimulants, and to provide food that is healthy and contributes to the wellbeing of the consumer.

Do you have any advice for folks who are considering getting into organic farming?
Talk to other farmers, go to meetings and farm tours, and don't be discouraged by "conventional thinking". There are sustainable methods within modern agriculture.

Is there something interesting that you can share about organic farming that our Farm Fans might not know?
It gets more interesting the longer you're into it. I think it is the future. Local food helps local communities.

What is your favourite chicken dish?
Chicken broccoli noodle casserole. We have it almost every week!

What is your favourite way to enjoy eggs?
3 or 4 over easy every morning!!

Our commitment to organic

When our founding farmers started farming in Ontario many years ago, they chose to grow organically because they knew it would provide the best products for their families and friends.
