We are Michael and Sally Knight, husband and wife, city dwellers who have chosen like many to leave our city jobs behind and return to the land. In October 2008 we started on our journey of building a sustainable farm in Stirling, Ontario. By no means is this journey over....
In 2017 we decided to do something a little crazy and we packed up Strattons Farm into a 40ft container, loaded our livestock into a trailer and moved our farm 1800kms to the Annapolis Valley......
"Why don't we pay more attention to who are farmers are? We would never be as careless choosing an auto mechanic or babysitter as we are about who grows our food."
We employ organic growing methods to provide you and your families with nutritionally dense vegetables. We farm with a walk behind tractor and lots of hand tools, we use permanent raised beds.
Our animals are raised on pasture to allow them to show their natural "animalness"! Our market garden over the next three years will return to being certified Organic. Our vegetables are grown using only certified organic or sustainable grown seed. We grow using no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We fertilize our market garden using kelp, glacial rock dust, greensand, certified organic compost and green manures.
