This new year brings us to a new piece of farmland. As much as we will miss the Niagara region and the wonderful Lowery family, we have decided to relocate to the Meaford area where we will have more land and an actual farmhouse to be based out of. No more sleeping in tents, squatting in the bush, eating in the car etc. The new land is called the "Free Farm" because the "Free" family once owned this piece of land.
We are excited to be taking over a 5-6 acre piece of the property and converting it back to "organic". Grant will fill you in on all the details of that later. After planting a whole bunch of garlic in October and working at our "real" jobs like dogs all fall, we are excited to spend the next few months talking to chefs, friends and other farmers about ideas and plans for this planting/growing season. Hopefully we can get in a little skiing too. Here are a few pics from this Christmas season around the Free Farm.
