It all begins with the soil, the rich bed of nutrients that give our vegetables vitamins and flavour. Our gentle, low-tillage method of farming allows the natural processes in the soil to occur, such as the growth of microbes and small critters, and improves the soil structure. Our aim is to let the ecosystem regenerate and flourish with as little disturbance as possible.
On farms like ours that are using gentle farming methods, it is much like a backyard garden but on a much larger scale. All the space and rich, healthy soil allows us to cultivate an incredible variety of vegetables. We love teaching the community about the diversity of vegetables growing on Ontario farms. Here is what we grow each year!
