Island Growing Company

Come grow with our family as we turn to our roots and live off our own land. Island Growing Company is located on our small acreage in the village of Stella, by the shores of Lake Ontario on Amherst Island. Our start-up activities include maple syrup production, CSA gardening using organic methods, and a road-side farm stand. We will have fresh, brown, organic eggs in Spring 2010 and our local whole wheat flour will be available at our farm stand in early summer. Our goal is to provide fresh, local food using sustainable methods and organic models not only for ourselves but for our local community. Come grow with us as we begin this journey! We are a CSA based farm. Products shown are those that we expect to have surplus of beyond the needs of the CSA members.
