At Our Farm we believe in providing local eaters with food that is healthy, sustainably grown, and delicious. While our vegetables are grown in an organic manner, we are not certified – but we invite all our customers to visit the farm and see for themselves how their food is produced. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture or Community Shared Agriculture, and we believe that our customers joining with us in sharing the risk of a growing season only encourages us more to use every sustainable means at our disposal to produce a superior product.
We also raise happy, pastured meat animals, and encourage people to get in touch if they are interested in this aspect of our operation.
Our Farm is located about 25 minutes north of Kanata, approximately half way between Dunrobin and Constance Bay.
Katie was raised in the area on a small family beef farm and Matt was raised in north-eastern New Brunswick – he grew up in the Acadian French town of Tracadie-Sheila, and spent lots of time on his grandparent’s farm as a child. Starting Our Farm was a real “going back to our roots” experience for us, and we put a lot of thought into naming the farm. We want to provide you with such incredible, delicious food that when you serve it at your next dinner party, your guests are going to ask you, “I’ve never had chicken and carrots that taste so wonderful! Where did you get them?” … and you’ll be able to answer, “Oh, we got them from Our Farm.” Your guests will look puzzled, asking, “You have a farm?” and you can reply, “Yes, we do have a farm.”
The thing is, we truly want you to think of this as “your” farm. We grow the vegetables, raise the chickens and lambs, but this 100 acres feeds your family. We wanted to run the vegetable operation in the Community Supported Agriculture model with an emphasis on community, because we were both raised in a small-town atmosphere and we firmly believe in community. We’d love for you to be part of Our Farm’s community.
