My Inspiration: The lost “art” of heritage farming, animals, nature, tradition, history, the beauty of soil. Being a part of change and knowing I am contributing in a positive way.
My Story: Living in reverse, we moved to a rural farm in beautiful Mississippi Mills Ontario. Blue Hen Farm came with a rich history and we were in love the moment we stepped into the warm kitchen on a cold winter day. Feeling like this old farm had been just waiting to be brought back to life we dove in.
As a population we are aware that something is wrong with our food production, but many don’t know how the “wheels turn” on a farm in the first place. So how are we ever going to fix it? With a mission for change, I have become a “diligent luddite” to be preserve food production practices for a sustainable future. Sharing my passion and knowledge with our guests and visitors, and keeping our traditions of the past alive .
My Favourite things: My “office” barnyard and co worker livestock animals, the pride I feel being a female farmer, when people “come home” to the farm, oh and anything home baked, still warm out of the wood burning oven!
