Welcome! We are the Silk family: Bren and Megan, Essery, James, Elijah and Aaron. We live in Meaford, Ontario, near the shores of Georgian Bay, in colourful Grey County.
Our goal is to provide a variety of quality homestead products to our community, including seedlings, plants, honey, ferments, fruits and vegetables, and other items we produce right here on our homestead.
We are continually striving to build a simple, sustainable life for our family. We grow food on our land using traditional, small-scale, human-powered practises. We aim to be good stewards of the land, promote a strong local community, and share our homestead journey with anyone who may be interested in this type of living.
Thanks for visiting, and we hope to meet you soon.
For the 2020 growing season, we are excited to be able to offer a full variety of produce and products from our Homestead. Our produce is grown from certified organic seeds and raised using "beyond organic" practices - no pesticides or anything unnatural whatsoever. Seeds are sown by our family, plants are grown by our family, and the harvest is gathered by our family. We love what we do.
We visit the following markets throughout the growing season, where we sell our family's overflow of homestead produce and products:
(Fridays from 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.)
(Saturdays from 8:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m.)
(Sundays from 11:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.)
(Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
We would love to hear from you.
That being said, please note that we are not open to the public, other than of course for our weekly farm gate sales on Wednesdays (May through October). This is largely due to the four little ones that run free on the farm, and the animals who like to follow them around. Thank you for understanding, and we hope to hear from you soon.
