About Our Farm

Can gardening and farming be regenerative? Yes! 

Sunflowers at Bird's Nest garden Farm
Sunflowers bloom near the dead hedge, an early paddock for chickens and pigs.

The Saugeen 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 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 were 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—get in touch; we’ll explore together. erin@polkadothenproduce.com

Farm Tours resume in July and August.

Our schedule is a little more loose this summer (2024) with family commitments and off-farm jobs taking priority.

Please get in touch through email if you’d like to schedule a tour!
