Testimony from the farmer:
“I have farmed the land at N1/2 Lot 5 Con 10 N Stormont for 32 yrs using approved organic methods. To fertilizer the fields, I used the manure from my animals, beef cows, sheep, pigs, layer hens, and meat chickens. My animals had free access to shelter and the outdoors. My fields are tree-lined. I bought seed for crops and hay from Homestead Organic Mill, Berwick Ont. I bought feed for my animals and chickens from this same mill. After Homestead Organic Mill closed, I bought certified organic grain from the feed store in Finch and Metcalfe.” Larry Kelly
Ideally, the current owners are looking for a buyer who fully appreciates the rarity and value of this chemical-free land and the value of the forests. The owners wish to sell to another farm family who is interested in keeping the farm in organic production. The owners are very willing to train and pass on their knowledge, including keeping the cattles so their herd can stay on the land.
