About Us Our 50 acre Farm is located just outside Cobden in Admaston/Bromley Township we started farming in 2013 and raise Pigs,Beef cattle,Rabbits and Chickens We try to raise as much of our own feed as possible we grow hay,barley,corn and soybeans we use as little chemicals as possible. For weed control we cultivate the beans and corn and rotate fields into hay every 4 years for a couple years to clean up again. We plant our own seed from Barley,corn,soybeans every thing is non GMO For fertilizer we use manure and we also plant cover crops where possible for added nitrogen. We use a fertilizer called Growers for corn which uses only food grade ingredients but is not certified organic. The Pigs and are on pasture as soon as grass is ready in spring till late fall. They are fed a corn,barley,soybean meal mix once a day to supplement grass and roots they find on pasture. No steroids,hormones or other such nonsense. HAPPY PORK TASTE THE DIFFERENCE !!!!
Supporting local, sustainable agriculture is so important to us and the OVFC makes it remarkably easy to do so. It’s wonderful that we have the chance to reconnect with the community that we know and love even though we’re no longer living right in the valley. The Co-op is one of the things we miss most about Renfrew County, so I was more than delighted to learn that you were adding a pick-up location in Ottawa.
