We are a Community Farm with a music focus that provides city folk with a place to raise animals, and keep a large garden and many fruit trees, all within an easy commute from Edmonton. We have goats, a couple of cows, many ducks and many laying hens. We raise heritage chickens on pasture with sunshine, natural foraging and mother hen raised. Our gardens and fruit trees/bushes are big and healthy and getting bigger and better with the help of Permaculture techniques and the families who come here.
Along with daily animal care chores, our current bigger project is finishing the fences around our barn. We are also continuing to work on the Solviva greenhouse project we started and adding details to the cob oven kitchen within easy reach of the back door to our straw bale home.
Our helpers become part of our family, coming with us to social gatherings, music events and jams.
We are always making music around here, usually involving a fiddle or two, and love the way people come together to make and eat good food!
