What is a market farm/garden?A market farm/garden is a small-scale bio-diverse farm that grows on a small area of land -- meaning it grows a variety of vegetables in a condensed area (the opposite of large-scale monoculture!).
What do you grow?
Where do you farm?
We farm in Baden, Ontario on a 1.75 acre plot of land at Sunset Glen Farms, home farm to Vibrant Farms, an organic, grass-fed meat business.
How many people farm on the area of land you lease?
Farmer Mike is the primary grower. We are looking to potentially hire some help this year to help with the overall work at the farm + to give new growers an opportunity to learn.
Farmer Brie is often an extra set of hands for growing, but focusses more on homeschooling the kids, marketing, and customer service.
Our friend, Aliyah, at Lucky Bug Farm also has some bed space on our leased land + in our greenhouse. She leases 1/3 acre here at Sunset Glen Farms as well.
