An Opportunity for Innovation

Urban Crops started in backyards and community gardens in Toronto before moving to the 65 acres of Cavaleiro Farm. 65 acres is a lot of backyards, so we needed an approach to managing Cavaleiro that was a little different.

We couldn’t completely scale our methods so we decided to just add more farmers. More farmers could effectively and intensely use Cavaleiro Farm. More over, more farmers using the same resources brings down our costs.

Introducing Cavaleiro Business Memberships which allow you to access the farm to grow out your local food business. Join other local food business as we figure out how to fix our food system and make our communities healthy again.
