Camelia and I have a smallish ‘cottage farm’ with livestock, (heritage Lynch Lineback dual purpose cattle, layer and meat chickens and pigs), four season vegetables and fruit. The orchard is in production with apples, peaches, pears, various exotics, and berries – currants,raspberries, blackberries, aronia and haskap. We grow a wide variety vegetables, both in the greenhouses year-round and in the outdoor plots.
I’ve developed the farm since 2007 to be a permaculture demonstration site, which is to say, in a way that generates fertility of soil and enhances biodiversity, while producing a harvest. We hold workshops, tours and training events in permaculture, climate emergency awareness, lifestyle downshifting, and related topics.
In 2022, Kenzie Mallais became the resident market gardener intern, with their own plans and new ideas, such as raising quail for eggs and meat, growing a strawberry patch, and more.
Come by for a visit some time.
