    Description

    We are an off-grid sustainable organic farm in eastern Ontario specializing in beef, chicken, lamb, turkey, pork, vegetables and fruit. We are a small farm that attends farmers' markets and sells to local grocery stores and restaurants. As a New Zealand farmer living in Canada, I grow all my animals on grass. The farm utilizes rotational grazing. The vegetables and fruit grown on the farm are primarily for our consumption but my wife also has a vast menu of farm to fork foods to sell at the market.

    You will be provided with a one bedroom self contained sleeping apartment which includes its own shower/bath - TV and internet. We will provide all meals. Our property has a salt water pool and access to a canoe, bikes with many trails in our surrounding area. Our farm is also on a large creek that can be canoed. I am from New Zealand and my wife is Canadian. Both of us have traveled extensively. We have two children that we homeschool and who thoroughly enjoy meeting people from different countries and cultures. We are 40 mins from Ottawa, which is the capital of Canada and is a 'must see' for anyone traveling in Canada.
