We have pork, chicken, and beef for roasting and toasting on your family table.
Old 99 Farm is located at 1580 Old Hwy 99, 6km west of downtown Dundas off Governors Rd. Take Governors Rd to Binkley, turn left and immediate right onto Old 99. I, Ian Graham, call myself a “bloomin’ doomer-boomer, downwardly mobile, neopeasant cognescente”. I am the proprietor, permaculture designer and farmer-in-progress here and with loads of help and companionship from Camelia, my wife, we are making a beautiful thing blossom right here. Contact via phone 905 627 1917 or this website.
In 2013, I opened the farm to international farm helpers, by listing on www.helpx.net. So far we have hosted twelve people, from France, Japan, Germany, UK, Spain, Holland, and Canada. We did it again in 2014 and 2015, a wonderful way to meet people, show what permaculture can do, and maybe ‘radicalize’ a few young people to ‘be the change they want to see in the world’.
In 2019 Nick Lamarsh and wife Angela joined us, intending to learn livestock husbandry and permaculture while assuming responsibility for the market garden enterprise.
This is a small farm, a permaculture demonstration site and market garden. 2008 was my first season, with about 20 vegetables in the ground. Now it’s spring 2021, the Hobbithouse, a greenhouse built into a hillside, is full of greens, seedlings are set out, and the other greenhouses are about to be planted in hot weather crops: tomatoes, eggplant, peppers. The outside gardens will be planted during April and beyond. We have heritage Canadian Lineback cattle, Tamworth pigs and commercial strains of chickens: layers and broilers in season.
