Who we are
We are an off-grid, organic, permaculture-based homesteading farming community striving to live in harmony with our natural surroundings, located on almost 140 acres of forest on the North Mountain of the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. There are currently six people living here.
Our mission is to create a safe, healthy, peaceful community in which members can live together, fostering an environment of egalitarianism and personal development. We also aim to steward the land in a sustainable manner, one that allows members to provide for their food, fuelwood, and water needs collectively, while improving the fertility and biodiversity of the land.
We produce most of our own food from our own vegetable gardens and livestock that we raise on a small scale, which currently includes goats, ducks, and chickens. To increase self-sufficiency and long-term resilience, we employ permaculture design principles while reducing our dependency on complex and precarious technologies.
On Saturdays we sell a variety of fresh produce, such as salad greens, heirloom vegetables, and wildcrafted foods, at the Annapolis Royal Farmers & Traders Market.
On Fridays before the market between 4 and 6pm, we welcome anyone in the Hampton area to drop by for “Farm-Gate Fridays” to beat the market rush and purchase any items from that week’s harvest, plus get a tour of the farm to see how the food is grown. Please contact us if you need directions to the farm.
