Farm Share opportunity in Erin!

-Seeking a Farm Share or new venture partner-
Interested in a 5 year partnership or arrangement (would consider longer).
Photo attached.

Our 47 acre farm is located in Erin, 30 minutes east of Guelph. We have available 5 acres of arable, sandy loam soil for rent or as a shared venture. The land has not been treated with herbicide or pesticide since 1999. We use organic and natural practises. Currently the field is seeded in grass hay, at the end of its’ production cycle. Access to water (pond) if needed for irrigation.

Other opportunities, open for discussion and consideration:
5 acres of mixed hardwood and softwood forest (suitable for selective logging, forest gardening, mushrooms, wild edibles). Farm animals include riding horses, a small flock of chickens and goats (pets). 35hp tractor with loader, cultivator, hay wagon and garden tractor/wagon on site.

We have successfully grown lavender, garlic, mushrooms, sunflowers and cut flowers on a small scale and hosted bee hives. We are currently looking for an arrangement with a local beekeeper.

If this sounds like a place where you might get your hands dirty, and grow something beautiful, edible or medicinal, please connect. Bridget Ryan. 519.216.4562, bridgetryan@sympatico.ca
