  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 3 farming organically in the Georgian Bay Area of Ontario situated right inside the Niagara Escarpment .We have a market garden, beef cattle, heritage chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. We milk one cow and make cheese. We go to Toronto to 3 Farmers Markets.
    The Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment are probably two of the most beautiful places in Canada, with beaches, campsites, bike routes and the Bruce trail, a very popular hiking trail, which passes through our farm. In the winter months it is the primary ski country in Ontario.
    We have bikes and camping equipment you can borrow.
    We are currently booking spring and summer 2019 volunteers
