Heritage Farm Life – Calves and Pigs and Turkeys…

November 14, 2012


Back on the farm the miracle of autumn is spectacular…

The crisp cold air, exploding colours everywhere, the harvesting of our own food, the playfulness of the animals and the smell of the soil underfoot.

The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life. – Wendell Berry


“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” ―  Masanobu Fukuoka

7:00am dark outside, Murray’s Farm, Cambridge, Ontario “Pigs need a feeding, Turkeys need a watering, Eggs need collecting…” 

I prefer to leave the city and spend time on this farm whenever we can. Doing chores from morning to night, experiencing a true heritage farm lifestyle. As I wrote in one of my previous posts “farm life is hard work yet there’s something essential about growing your own food. Getting back into rhythm with the earth and animals that sustain you.”

Why do I love spending time on a farm?  I love to watch and nurture the crops & plants. I love to live in the presence of the animals. I love working outdoors. I love watching the weather. I love the independence that farm life provides.

Support Your Local Farmers…

Food performance surveys show that a majority of food shoppers are willing to pay more for food grown locally on small family farms. Follow that up with consumer buying habits and we will change the tradition of farming in North America.

Don’t Eat Anything Your Grandmother Would Not Recognize As Food!
