Hi there! We are the Silk family: Bren and Megan, Essery, James, Elijah and baby Aaron. We live in Meaford, Ontario, near the shores of Georgian Bay, in colourful Grey County. In 2014, we found a forgotten-about parcel of land, and began the process of building our house and starting our farm from the ground up. It’s been a work in progress.
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 using traditional, small-scale, human-powered practices. 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!
