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.

Grassfed Lamb

Grass Fed Lamb

Our sheep are raised on pasture and are 100% grassfed. All of our grassfed lambs are raised on mixed perennial pastures and finished on a mix of perennial and annual grasses and alfalfa hay. We use high density planned grazing, moving the sheep every few days, with the objective of raising strong healthy lambs while contributing to healthy soils and healthy pastures.

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 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.

Thanks to our Winnipeg folks for a great delivery day.

We arrived a little hurried and just on time after making part of our drive on ice covered roads.

The roads were clear for our ride home (thank you salt). We thought we might have to spend the night in the city as the highways were wet/ice covered and the temperatures were forecast to drop, but, it looks like overcast skies are helping to hold temperatures steady at “mild” and the roads are drying off.

We appreciate everyone coming to the delivery to pick up food from animals we raise here on the farm. We wish we had more time to visit and while we are thrilled with the bustle of the delivery we would really like to spend more time with you all. Come visit us!

Part of the reason our delivery window is so short (particularly in winter when daylight is limited) and why we meet at a rendezvous point as opposed to home delivery is because we live a 200+km drive west of the city.

Our delivery days generally start early and end late. We pack up in the early a.m. Wian does chores and then we hit the road. We leave around 11:00 to arrive for 1:30 to prepare for a 2:00-3:00pm delivery. We pack up delivery by 3:30 and go eat late lunch or early supper from 4:30-5:30, sometimes out and sometimes with family. We may have time for an errand (ice cream, groceries or canadian tire..?), get gas, hit to road for 6:00-7:00 and get home for 9:30-10:00. When we get home we unload any remaining inventory, complete minor chores, have tea and a snack and go to bed.

These days are rewarding. We think the buying club model is one of the best ways for us to stay connected to community and for folks to stay connected to the farm and to food.

Thanks all!
