Against the Wind Farm & Gardens is a work in progress.

When we began work on our 5 acre plot of land in 2007 our enthusiasm far outweighed our experience. With a keen interest in land stewardship, gardening, organic practices and healthy food, our limited know-how felt manageable.

Today, we are surrounded by gardens and field crops that are both productive and beautiful. While some of our ventures have gone by the wayside others continue to flourish, and our enthusiasm for ‘growing’ remains solid.

Our small farm and the crops we grow are here to be enjoyed by friends, neighbours, family and people who are interested in “knowing their farmer”.

We invite you to browse our website to get a closer look at what we do, and how we do it.
