regenerative organic farm ottawa

Recently, I moved all the way from my hometown of Kitchener, Ontario to a little town near Ottawa. After I was settled in, I wanted to connect with the local farmers, and begin purchasing most of my food from them as well. Ultimately, I made a massive list of farms in the area, for myself, and I thought I’d share that list with you in this article, so that you too can benefit from all the work I put into it.

But first, here 2 reasons why you should find a regenerative farmer near you, and begin buying most, if not all, of your food from them.

1. Eating Organic Food Produced Regeneratively Improves the Environment

Every time you eat conventional food from grocery stores, you’re supporting a type of farming which poisons your food, the environment, wildlife, and destroys topsoil. Conversely, eating organic food grown by farmers practicing regenerative agriculture is one of the most powerful ways you can regenerate the environment and reverse any environmental damage that has occurred from conventional agriculture. It’s up to us to fix the problems in the world, and changing the food you eat is hands down the #1 way to become a part of the solution.

2. Buying Farmer Direct Saves You Money

Many people think that buying directly from farmers is expensive. This is simply not true. The fact that you can cut out the middle man in your supply chain not only makes your food less expensive, especially if you buy in large quantities, like a half cow, for example, but it also makes your food supply more resilient. Get to know your farmers and how they do things. It’s a very important relationship to have for you and your family.

It’s time for the big list of regenerative and organic farms near Ottawa, Ontario, along with the products they sell, and all their contact information to make things as easy as possible for you.. I hope this list helps you find a farmer, and begin buying your food from them.
