For 2013 we will be attending markets once per month. We will be at Brewer, Westboro, Manotick and Main St. We will shortly be posting the exact dates on our website.
And visit us year round at our retail store, 20 minutes from downtown Ottawa, located at 2696 9th Line Road, one mile east of the village of Metcalfe, Ontario. The store is open Sunday afternoons and any time by appointment, just call to make sure we’re here.
Please note: Eggs are only available at the store, first come, first serve, starting at noon. Please don’t ask us to reserve some for you, unfortunately this model is the only fair system we can come up with. We, and our mortgage, desperately wish we could increase the number of hens we raise. Ideally they would follow the cows every day, but we are limited by silly provincial quotas to make Joel’s model, featured in Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s, work to its fullest potential.
Please also contact us if you would like one of us to speak to your group about small-scale grain farming or renewable energy. We also do demonstrations at local fairs, and provide tours of our farm.
