About Our Farm

Can gardening and farming be regenerative? Yes!

The Bruce Peninsula is a chunk of rock, rough around the edges encrusting a beautiful “natu-rural” heart within. Bird’s Nest Garden Farm follows that same heartbeat with our green thumb on its pulse.

Our other green appendages: 

  • Veggies, herbs, and ornamentals: (seasonally for sale) grown with attention to soil health and pollinator attraction 

  • Happy heritage chickens in their mobile coop provide eggs and insect control

  • Lambmowers” capture carbon and co-grow topsoil while keeping the grass trimmed (summer 2020 lambs are replaced by two piggies)

  • Four of Ontario’s oldest living roofs cover buildings and create cover for bugs and birds

  • A round, off-grid house made of local materials (straw, wood, clay, etc.) provides a platform for plants and people

  • A wild array of Niagara Escarpment field and forest trails onsite and nearby beckon both lazy and extreme hikers

If you’re looking to buy a zillion different plants, or just take a selfie and do a 15-minute stopover, this is not the best place for you.

But if you want to dig deeper, and let nature tango with you a little more intriguingly—give us a call; we’ll explore together. 

2020 Farm Tours are proceeding cautiously as Ontario “opens up.” Go here for information on booking your tour with us.
