our farm

about our farm

We are a small scale farm located on Currie Line in Belgrave, Ontario.

We are certified organic and produce vegetables on 3.5 acres of our 7 acre farm. We use the rest of the land to provide habitat to pollinators, and other beneficial insects and animals, and to grow other useful plants for food and for fun!

how we grow

We use our hands and our small tractors to grow an incredible quantity and diversity of food on our small farm. We seed with Jang and Earthway push seeders, transplant by hand, weed with hoes, wheelhoes, and a new planet junior finger weeder. We harvest by hand, or with small scale appropriate harvest tools like our Quick Cut greens harvester.

We focus on building healthy soil and use a lot of compost and cover crops to accomplish this.  Plants grown in healthy soils taste great, grow quickly and are better able to handle disease and insect pressure.  Aside from soil building, we keep pests under control by following a careful crop rotation, and using physical barriers like row cover.  We’re not above hand picking and squishing bugs when needed!

We harvest our vegetables as close to selling them as possible and make sure that greens and other sensitive crops are out of the field and into the cooler early in the day.  By doing this our veggies are always fresh when you buy them and have great shelf life in your fridge.

  1. I am looking for golden beets. A friend recommended you but I can’t find your days/hours at the farm. I would like to purchase the beets asap and can’t wait for the market on Saturday.

    1. Hi Patricia, we are bringing a great deal of garlic to the farmers market these days and would be happy to sell in bulk quantities. After that you just need to keep it cool and dry to store over winter.

  2. I am pleased to recommend and promote your farm
    on my social media channels.
    Keep up your great work. #breakthrunow #bayfieldconcierge
