About Us

The farm…

We are a local farm focused on providing the local community with great food! We operate on 10 acres of land just West of Cache Bay, Ontario. We want to know the people that eat the food we produce and we want our customers to know us, the farmers.  We always operate with health and ecology in mind. There are two different ways to buy our yummy foods:

The farmers…

Ryan Spence worked in the film and video industry in Montreal for 6 years during and after university and then decided that it was time to make a change in his life path.  He was looking for something that aligned more with his ethics.  So, he became a farmer! As a farmer he strives to grow the freshest, healthiest, and most delicious food he possibly can! While doing this, he hopes to build a community around the farm, to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner, address issues of local food security and, last but not least, have fun!

Isabelle Legault began her career in administration. She worked for the public service for a few years, more specifically for organizations like the Institute of Population and Public Health. This particular contract led her to organize a Café Scientifique on Food Security. It was during this event that Isabelle knew that her path was leading her in a new direction. She then entered the environmental sector where she was able to work in urban farming and start up a collective garden in an impoverished neighborhood. This experience added to her knowledge of food security issues and allowed Isabelle to understand the implication of urban food supply. She also learned how small gestures made at the individual level can greatly improve our collective lives on this earth. No stranger to the farming world, Isabelle grew up on the family land where her father was a cattle farmer. She worked for seven years on the farm and has fond memories of those beautiful long-lashed cows. More recently, Isabelle had the amazing opportunity to work at a local farm which not only has a CSA program but also raises pigs, cows, chickens and ducks. Isabelle loves to learn. She and Ryan own a multitude of books on sustainable development, ecological pest and weed management, permaculture, raising chickens, and traditional methods in agriculture. She also loves to talk to farmers and avid gardeners about their experience. She sincerely believes that we have a lot to learn from our elders. It is with this love of farming and sensitivity to food and environmental issues that Isabelle begins her life as a farmer. She hopes that she will make her ancestors proud by respecting the earth that offers such bounty.
