Established in the 1900’s this farm will be a tour back in time. With a 100 year old barn, fields and greenhouses filled with vegetables and herbs this tour will bring us back to basics.
Wear comfortable shoes as we’ll be moving around the farm to see the fields and barns.
Car pooling is recommended.
It was in the 70s when the O’Neil farm was purchased by a group of people from the Peterborough/Toronto area, under the name Kawartha Hills Organic Farm. The farm functioned as a co-operative until it changed hands again in 2005. Scott King began work on the farm in 2012, and now runs the business.
This is a CSA farm. CSA stands for ‘Community Supported Agriculture’. CSA’s give you direct access to local produce by purchasing a ‘share’ of the seasons yields. Shares are purchased in advance of the season, giving the farmer financial assistance for purchasing seed, supplies, and equipment. In return, you get a weekly box of fresh produce!
