What’s your story?
Twenty two years ago we bought the farm as a weekend get away and two years later moved to the farm full time. We started farming to feed our family and then eventually we began feeding our community with healthy meats, eggs and goat dairy products. We expanded by adding Kortright Creek Creamery to produce organic goat milk, yogurt. Fable (=farm+table) our on farm restaurant, the bed & breakfast and farm stay was added five years ago as another avenue for feeding and educating our community with and about good food and healthy farming practices. During the summer the farm hosts farm events, workshops and tours.
What are your production practices?
The farm is 100% non certified organic. We rotationally graze on over 400 acres of pasture and woodlands. The cattle, goats and sheep are 100% grass fed and the pigs, poultry and rabbits are pasture raised and fed local grains.
