If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t!
– Michael Pollan, Food Rules; An Eater’s Manual
Tired of wimpy, tasteless, and uninteresting food? Concerned about the growing practices of mono-culture industrial farms? Want to do something to improve your health, the health of your community and the health of the planet? Then you’ve come to the right place! By choosing local and organic food, you are making an important statement about the type of world you want to live in.
We’ve been growing delicious and nutritious organic produce for our Community Supported Agriculture members in the Kingston area since the spring of 2007 on the pristine shores of Lac du Chien (Dog Lake!) in Battersea, Ontario. We have a fertile slice of Class A farmland on the Frontenac Axis, where the Canadian Shield meets the St. Lawrence Lowlands, allowing a tremendous diversity of both flora and fauna. We strive to increase the health of our soil and thereby our plants and ultimately our customers by keeping tillage to a minimum and supplementing our soil with micro-nutrients. To learn more about the importance of these practices, visit here.
The easiest way to eat more vegetables, is to eat vegetables that taste great!

Our crop list contains over 30 different types and varieties of vegetables.
For 26 weeks, from mid-June through November, our members receive a colourful assortment of freshly picked vegetables, and some fruits. Some members prefer to pick up Tuesdays at the farm while others prefer to pick up on Sundays at the Memorial Centre Farmer’s Market. Learn more about our Community Supported Agriculture programs.
Visit us at Kingston’s newest local farmer’s market. The Memorial Centre Farmer’s Market operates Sundays from 9am-2pm beginning on Mother’s Day, May 6, 2016.
