Chicken

Pasture Raised Chicken

In a pastured poultry system birds are kept outside (seasonally). Portable shelters are used and the birds have access to fresh-growing palatable vegetation. The pastured poultry shelters are moved each day so that the chickens have access to fresh vegetation and so we can manage nutrient deposits on the land.

Beef

Grass Fed Beef

From the time an animal is born to the time it reaches your dinner table we take great care to consider the wellbeing of that animal and the environment in which it’s raised. Calves are born on pasture in late spring/early summer and cows are grazed using planned grazing techniques whereby they have access to fresh pasture each day.

Eggs

Pastured Eggs

Our pastured hens are raised seasonally, on pasture, where they roam during the day. We use portable hen houses that follow behind the cows and the sheep on pasture.

Pork

Pasture Raised Pork

Our pigs are raised in a pasture environment. Just as we do with the other animals on the farm, we move the pigs, changing the location of their paddock every couple of weeks.

A little bit about us.

What's in a name?
The name Luna Field Farm is inspired by our Livestock Guardian Dog Luna, who faithfully guards our flock of sheep. She is our true shepherd.
A little bit about Lydia
I am originally from Winnipeg. While I was a student at the University of Winnipeg I studied Environmental Science and Geography where I took an interest in systems ecology and soil sciences (nutrient cycling!) Later I earned my Master’s in Natural Resources Management with a research focus on rural livelihoods and gender. My studies have taken me to Mexico and Brazil where I gained an increased understanding and appreciation for agrarian livelihoods and small-scale agriculture. Through my learning and farming experience I have come to realize that pasture based farming and food production are viable livelihood activities for young people in Canada. Farming allows Wian and I to work together, problem solve, learn from others, learn from our environment, and provide our community with healthy food. I am challenged everyday to make decisions that impact how we care for land, animals,family and friends.
The story on Wian
As long as I can remember I have wanted to graze livestock. I began farming in 2005 after moving to Canada from Pretoria, South Africa. From the age of 18 I studied during the winter months and farmed on rented land during the summer. Initially I focused on pastured poultry but dreamed of one day raising sheep and cattle on a mixed-livestock farm. I wanted to raise good food for people in my community. Over the past decade I have had the opportunity to raise chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep, goats and cattle. Since the spring of 2012 Lydia and I have been farming in Western Manitoba where we raise our chickens and pigs on pasture use planned grazing management for our grassfed beef and lamb. I have found self directed-study, trial and error, mentorship and the direct application of attained skills to be the most rewarding learning tools.

For those interested in prairie,prairie women and indigenous history, Sarah Carter’s books are great. Beautifully written. Sarah Carter is a professor of history at the University of Calgary and has written extensively in the areas of women’s, Aboriginal, and western Canadian history. These books have given me insight into how I am able to be on this land and how government [ag] policy has shaped the landscapes we have come to recognize as “the canadian prairie”. ...

Okay. I’m going to recommend the library get all three of these. Thanks for the recommendation!

I agree it's a great book, Imperial Plots, but I was very disappointed that the information Dr. Carter gave about my great grandmother Elise Vane kept to the usual line and didn’t call out Englishman Criddle's corruption in using Elise to obtain more land for himself. The Criddle myth has great power. I don't know how you have time to read in your busy life. I'm a fan and love following your activities. My book may be in a library near you. For Elise: Unveiling the Forgotten Woman on the Criddle Homestead.

Thanks for this great recommendation!

Janet Smith

Thanks for sharing this. I am going to look for her books.

Thank you, will be interesting reading

Thank you. Adding to my reading list.

Amazing I should look these up! Anna Hunter also thought of you for your reading list?

11 hits at my local & e-Libraries! Glad to have a recommendation for wintertime as I finished all of Trevor Herriot's books during the lockdown 🙂

thanks for this! I'm on the coast, so this is not part of our history that I'm familiar with.

Correction: Dr Carter now teaches at the University of Alberta, not the University of Calgary, in case anyone wants to look her up.
