Campaign Description

Proud to be a producer in the YEG community. Growing tasty, heritage varieties without the use of chemicals or deep tillage. We are also raising pastured table poultry and pastured eggs. It is our mission to be part of the food revolution that is taking place worldwide and raising a new generation of farmers who know that there is a better way. Growing local for our community.

About Me

I am a single mom of 4 kids, with 2 of them still at home.  Being able to raise a new generation that is going to be responsible for the environment and their city is not something that should be taken lightly.  It is amazing the stories that I sometimes hear where children don't know where food comes from outside the grocery store.  When this happens it means that we are too far removed from the important things in life.  Food is what sustains us and we should care about how it is produced.

My farming story started 10 years ago on Vancouver Island.  I have always wanted to be a farmer and I got my feet wet here.  We raised dairy goats, laying hens and pastured poultry.  Plus we had a strawberry patch that was way more than we needed so we began to sell our excess.  I knew that I could make a living at farming even though everyone said that it was a poor way to go.  If I could go back and kick that girl in the butt and tell her not to listen to the naysayers I would.  

I have studied and kept what I knew to personal quantities but 12 months ago I took a intensive farming course from a mentor in the market gardening field J. M. Fortier from Quebec, Ontario.  This was eye opening because finally here was someone who had written everything down that I knew could be possible.  It works and I was ready to dive in.    We moved back to the country on rented land to make our start.  Last summer we did some trials and prep work on this land, and added dairy goats, laying hens and pigs to our farm with great excitement from friends and us.  We are ready for the 2020 season and we will be growing 30+ veggie and fruit varieties this season.   

We love the crowdfunding model because it gives us the opportunity to partner quickly with consumers who can see our vision and want to purchase what we produce.  The more we support small farms the more that will pop up.  This is what it is all about folks, partnering with your local grower and making sure that we can access local food year round.

With the funds raised from this campaign we are going to build a bigger feild house for the laying hens to accomodate them at night and keep them safe from predators.  Our current building just isn't big enough.  We are also going to erect 2 hoop houses to help sensitive plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant and melons thrive in our climate.  Finally we will also be adding a few more tools.  

If you have any questions please let us know.  We are excited to be growing for our community the best produce we can.
