Fresh Food in Ottawa’s Greenbelt

We take a holistic approach to farming, guided by organic, biodynamic and permaculture principles. The gradual process of developing a ”whole farm”, whereby a diversity of living systems, both plant and animal, are designed and managed in order to work together.

Vegetables are grown in succession from March until December without resorting to synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. All seed is certified organic and many varieties are heirloom. Cattle and chickens are both raised on green pasture with lots of space to move around and interact with each other.

Fresh produce – Grassfed beef

Pastured chicken – Free range eggs

Raw honey – Culinary herbs
