GET TO KNOW YOUR FARMERS!
Greg & Brianna
Growing up, I always knew I would be doing something with food. Working in kitchens for a large chunk of my life, I learned to appreciate the produce and ingredients I was working with. Then the idea started to germinate in my head; I needed to open a farm. And here we are!
After purchasing the land in 2016, I quickly learned about the abundant clay rich soil I was going to be growing my vegetables in. I knew this would pose as a challenge, but i was ready for the opportunity to turn this soil into a happy home for my vegetable.
On top of growing vegetables, I've always had a fascination with the creative process, and creating pottery has been a hobby of mine for many years. Boy was I in luck! Our clay rich soil fires to a cone 04, which gives me a virtually unlimited source of material to create pottery pieces and sell them at the farm. I will continue to experiment with different clay bodies for many years to come, and I hope i can pass this passion on to others with classes.
Im excited to get to know the people in the community, and can't wait to serve your vegetable and pottery needs!
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Ottawa! Growing up, I was always that kid that ate my veggies first and left the meat and carbs! Being a vegetarian for 7 years now, It was a ideal meeting a vegetable farmer! My love and passion for the environment spiked the idea of creating a sustainable lifestyle. Family and community are two very important parts of my life! My dreams for the farm is to create a one-stop shop for our customers while supporting other local businesses. I’m also hoping we can add more furry friends to our pasture. I am so lucky to be able to share what I love with my partner by my side!
My name is Winnie and I call March Meadow my home. Mom and dad don’t take me home with them at night because I love it so much here! I spend my days hunting mice, napping and greeting all the customers who come into the store. I have a strange obsession with cars and I like to jump in them, so be careful when you leave because I may be in your back seat!
My name is Zeus (aka the Biggest of Boosters). My two favourite things to do are eat and sleep! I love meeting new people and getting lots of attention, but sometimes it overwhelms me, and I will hide in a spot that feels safe. I don’t always come to the farm because mom and dad say that I run after the cars and bark too much, but its just because I like to say “Hi”.
My name is Odin (aka the littlest of Boosters). I love being at the farm, apparently my ancestors were born to work at the farm! I usually spend most of my time playing fetch or following mom and dad around. I can be shy at times but its only because I don’t know you very well yet!
My name is Turnip! Yup like the veggie! I am the newest member to March meadow. I live at the shop with my sister Winnie. I love to snuggle and play fight with anyone who comes through the door. I'm also a good lap warmer. Anytime mom or dad sit at the front desk I love to snuggle up on their laps. I plan on growing nice and strong so I can wander the garden during the summer months and hunt for unwanted guests!
