Spring is Apple Blossom Time. The snow is gone, the grass is green. The birds, the bees and the pollinators are all back. What a wonderful time of year!
The cats enjoy the warm Spring sunshine and a fresh bed of catnip. Happy Cats!
The chickens are happy to be out on green grass. Eating lots of protein. Bugs, worms, beetles and greens. Happy chickens!
Springtime is a great time for new calves to be born. There are no bugs or insects to bother them. The warm sunshine in a fresh bed of hay, laying next to their mother is wonderful!
Late spring the seedlings from the greenhouse are transplanted outdoors. These plants will produce the abundance needed for our CSA and farmers markets.
After transplanting out into the big garden, then comes the arduous job of mulching and staking, which will pay off greatly in the coming months.

Welcome To Earth Haven Farm

Earth Haven Farm is a 200 acre family-owned and operated subsistence farm dedicated to a sustainable lifestyle. We are located in the hamlet of Thomasburg just north of Belleville in the Municipality of Tweed in Ontario.  We have 3,000 acres of conservation land to the east of us, 800 acres of woodlot to the north and 1,000 acres of woodlot to the south.  We are in an ideal location for growing healthy, nutritional food, free of chemicals, pesticides and other toxins.

We farm using organic and biodynamic practices; a tradition of agriculture that connects all cultures around the world to their natural, ancestral agricultural roots.  Earth Haven Farm has been Certified Demeter (Organic) since 2008, with membership in the Society for Biodynamic Farming and Gardening in Ontario.

Along with our gardens of delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs, we pride ourselves in raising 100% pasture grass fed and pasture grass fed finished beef. In addition to their flavorful high-protein and low cholesterol meat, our hardy and sweet-tempered Scottish Highland Cattle are proven allies in helping us to clear a lot of underbrush from overgrown hedgerows and wooded pasture areas. They are truly the ideal breed for our remote farm location, topographical conditions and agricultural practices.

In these current times we are seeing more and more people with serious health issues related to three generations of eating "toxic" foods.  Here at Earth Haven Farm all of our efforts are put into growing healthy, nutritious food, free of chemicals and toxins.  Our aboriginal peoples refer to "food as medicine" and we are proud to support our heritage farming traditions by growing food that has a nutritional value that can be considered to be medicine.

In our ever-evolving journey in self sufficiency, our purpose is to leave something of value behind for future generations. It is our hope and dream that not only our children and grandchildren will continue on where we leave off, but also that we will inspire others to enter into a deeper and healthier relationship with their own land base.
