About Us

 

Peter Allemang and Erin Gundy
Peter Allemang and Erin Gundy grow fresh produce at Polka Dot Hen Produce north of Wiarton, Ontario.

We are both kids from suburbia. Hankering for nature, we loved coming to the Bruce Peninsula for holidays when we lived in the city. We are truly blessed to live here now and try not to take it for granted. We’ve been living on this site for over ten years, stewarding it for twenty.

Living off-grid in rural Ontario teaches you to pay attention to the world around you. Sometimes there’s a gentle breeze, sometimes snow blowing sideways across the field. We share this landscape with black flies, black bears and black ice; all in their season.

Along the way we’ve learned about growing fresh produce, eco-building, raising chickens and off-grid living. The list of things we’d like to learn grows and grows as we explore permaculture design, improving our soil and producing nutrient dense vegetables for our community. We continue to design our homestead and gardens to better work with nature.
