Indian Creek Orchard Gardens is an organically managed micro farm, intimate in scale. We are nestled on a magical five acres stretch of the Indian Creek, a small tributary of the Mississippi River between Pakenham and Almonte. At Indian Creek Orchard Gardens we employ a hybrid of regenerative, agroforestry and deep organic farming principles. Our vegetables are sown between rows of fruit trees, bush fruits and aisles of grape vines. We have purposefully left tracts of our farm wild, especially on the creek side.
When you walk through the orchard garden, you will find it teeming with life, wild and insect. It is a beautiful interdependent tapestry, and a thriving ecosystem where diversity is fostered and every facet supports the next. We value what nature brings to the table and attempt to work with it, bringing our intervention to a minimum. We favour low tech, natural, cultural and biological practices over chemical and heavily mechanized ones. Some of what we are are attempting to do is tried and true and a lot of it not so much. Every day in the garden is a lesson.
Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying stream of naturally grown artisanal fruit and vegetables the entire growing season. Our vegetables are available through our CSA garden share program
with pick up locations in Almonte, and Carleton Place and at our farm stand. When available, our fruit is available through our farm stand or at the Almonte Farmers Market. Either way, we hope to see you in 2020.
