Welcome To Earth Haven Farm
The above video was created by Vantage Point Media House on behalf of The Municipality of Tweed. It was created to help bring awareness to Tweed's long standing heritage, rooted in family farming and agriculture. We are proud to have been chosen from numerous farms in the community, and showcase our contributions to this farming community and what we believe is the "future of food."
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.
