“Cavaleiro Farm ushers in a new era of cooperative farming” (King Weekly Sentinel)
By Mark Pavilons
Our entire species is rooted in living off the land, and we can thank our forefathers for creating sustainable agricultural practices.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a truly natural farm operation, but public interest has generated a place for the ecological farm.
And such as a place exists in King Township.
Cavaleiro Farm is the brainchild of Urban Crops, an organization that brings together individuals and communities with a single motivation – to be the future of food production. While it sounds like a lofty goal, it’s really quite simple.
Individual and business members of this co-op style operation take a hands-on approach to growing food and animals, “cultivating minds” and thriving in a symbiotic, holistic relationship.
Led by Antonio Gomes, CEO of Urban Crops and manager of the farm on the 18th Sideroad, Cavaleiro Farm occupies its own niche. It follows the multi-farm Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, a locally based economical model of agriculture and food distribution. Smaller farms that are closer to local markets and offer a wide variety of products, are taking on a life of their own.
