Our 2019 Garden shares are on schedule
Due to the challenging spring, our farm stand will only be open to shareholders until further notice
Indian Creek Orchard Gardens is an organically managed micro farm, intimate in scale. We are nestled on five acres along the shores of the Indian Creek, a small tributary of the Mississippi River bewteen 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 creekside.
We began farming because, for us, there are few more satisfying ways to spend a day or a lifetime. Beyond that we wanted be a part of the solutions to some of the issues that concern us; access to sustainably grown food, and respect for local ecologies. 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 or by stopping by our farm stand. When available, our fruit is available through our farm stand. Either way, we hope to see you in 2019.
