  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is a new Organic start up. Our main focus is on microgreen production and Marketing. We are currently working on capacity building with new greenhouses and metal container production/storage buildings Our other venteures include Birds, bees and Sasaktoon berries. A treeplanting company is also housed on the property so a volenteer would get a glimse into that intense world. My wife and I live on the farm year round with our two small children.
