Our veggies are “beyond organic.” Certified organic means there’s no herbicides or pesticides on the food. We certainly don’t use any chemicals on our crops, but our growing methods are more than just about that.
Our number one objective is to take care of the soil so that it’s filled with life and gives the plants a really healthy environment to grow in.We make our own rich compost from our sheep and chicken poop. So you end up getting really healthy crops that are fresh, have a great taste, and filled with life and nutrients.
Some of our veggies come from our friends down the street at YMCA Cedar Glen Farm. I farmed with Melisanne, who runs the YMCA farm, 10 years ago at Fresh City Farms in Toronto. It’s fun to connect again and farm together. Their farm is also organic, and the farmers who work there have great energy and care around the crops. You can visit them next time you’re in the neighbourhood (visit their website here).
