Welcome to Riverglen Farm!

Farm_CB001Our 112 acre mixed farm is located in the west end of Ottawa’s Greenbelt, near Carling and Moodie. Surrounded by suburban forest and wetland, we are nestled on the banks of Shirley’s Bay on the Ottawa river, only 15 minutes drive from downtown.

We take a holistic approach to farming, guided by organic, biodynamic and permaculture principles. The process of developing a ”whole farm” is gradual, whereby a diversity of living systems, both plant and animal, are designed and managed in order to work together. Riverglen is essentially a robust and adaptable micro-ecosystem, working in harmony with its environment.

Customers purchase our produce, beef, chicken, eggs and honey by joining our CSA or by shopping our farm store.

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. Animals are raised on green pasture with lots of space to move around and interact with each other.

We’re crowd funding to help us do some much needed work on the barns and fences, upgrade the farm store and plant shrubs and trees around the gardens, pastures and laneways. Help us breath life into this old Greenbelt farm!

Hope to see you soon!
