About our Farmers
Quinn Farms are John and Bonnie Quinn who produce asparagus, sweet corn, cherry and field tomatoes, peppers and wild blueberries. These founding members guide our co-op and also provide fresh and dehydrated herbs!
The Avant Gardener is Fenn Martin and Amberlee Boulton who specialize in garlic, broccoli, and sugar snap peas. These two part-time academics are deep into clay, critters and multispecies entanglements.
Six Maples Farm Alicia, Danny King and their family are 7th generation farmers who provide free-run eggs and meat options. SMF has just added a state-of-the- art, free-run hen facility in Addington Forks.
Introducing Marthas New Growers. This year, David Matheson and Meghan Johnny are providing almost everything that goes in the salad bowl.
We are currently farming at the Bethany garden while we continue the search for our forever farm. We have a strong passion for growing nutritious and high quality vegetables that feed our community and support a strong local economy. In the garden we use practices that support the local ecological systems, and nurture everything from soil microbes, insects, amphibians, birds, and humans. On our days off we are often at the beach with friends, knitting, or baking bread.
Introducing Luna Farms, a small scale wild blueberry and Christmas tree farm run by Al Labranche & Megan Samson. They are new to farming and are passionate about partnering with the community, supporting sustainable food programs and businesses. They are both active in volunteering and fundraising for food insecurity programs and causes supporting the area. They enjoy spending time with their 2 dogs Luna & Indy, and their family.
With the help of neighbour’s, friends, and family we will be expanding our farm.
