Who we are & What we do


Maestro, head farmer
Cavaleiro Farm is radical food. We grow a variety of crops and foods that keep our community healthy, happy and feed year round. We build and design local food systems that work with nature so we can deliver fresh food efficiently and improve our environment as we eat.

I’m 34 and don’t have any kids. How can I work a 65 acre farm like they use to do? Our farm has memberships for local food entrepreneurs. Together we use the farm to grow food.

Every week we divert more than this

Red Rooster

We don’t grow the chickens the restaurant uses, maybe one day. We do however divert cardboard and food waste from the 3 Red Rooster locations to make compost, feed animals and plant trees. Last year was our first year of growing some plants for the restaurant, lets see what 2018 brings us.


Don't take my word for it

‘ I like your compost in the spring, because the one from the store is useless. You buy cow, sheep compost, doesn’t matter, you open the bag and it all looks the same. Not much life in that. Your compost is real.’

Janice Ho

Enterprise Member
Since becoming a member at Cavaleiro Farm in July 2015, I have learned about new ways of relating to food, farming, and the environment. It’s also the first time that I’ve experienced so much freedom to express my ideas and creativity towards meaningful projects. Through the mentorship and opportunities provided at the farm, I have grown to become more self-reliant and confident than ever before! Cavaleiro Farm has become a true home for me, and the community here (including the animals!) are now my family. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of my journey. See you on the farm!

Eggs are my favorite food and today I had the best egg of my life on Cavaleiro Farm. I learned how to tell what a really fresh egg looks and tastes like.

Shepherd Guide
Sheep back home tasted better than what you find here. It’s because sheep back home had a varied diet with lots of plants. They are healthier and taste better. Do that here at Cavaleiro and you will have excellent quality lamb.


That’s how we work

Experience food from the farm and start making connections. Connections between our food, our environment and culture. We are a community of action oriented individuals who want to figure out our own sustainable food system

Taking Responsibility

We all eat. Everyone can change how they eat so that it resonates with how we want to live on the planet and the community. When we begin to be accountable for our eating, we start making different food decisions.

Conduct the research

Textbooks to real world. We take the latest in everything and try to use it to grow more food for our community. Nothing is off limits, and its not just innovations in farming that we research.

Holistic Management

Life is complex, a farm is very complex. Holistic Management is a system that deals with this complexity. We use it on the farm.

Grow Food

Lets grow food. Lots of the food we grow on the farm is done because we like it. We only scale the food that is easy to grow and has a market. Its the process of figuring out what works and what doesn’t but we need to try.

Organic Growth

Learn from our experiences, share with our community and repeat. This is how we grow a sustainable food system


Creating a food system in our image. One with diversity, earth care, people care and fair share.


Let's local food together!
