We are a husband and wife team, along with interns and volunteers, working together on a 5-acre market garden located in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, outside of Cobden, ON. Our entire farm operation is Certified Organic ECO-CERT Canada. We produce over 150 different varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts and decorative and edible flowers. We use organic and permacultural growing methods to ensure the healthiest and highest quality of produce for you and your family. We have an Environmental Farm Plan and work to enhance and protect clean and prosperous wildlife habitat and human surroundings. Our fresh produce is distributed through a weekly basket program, through the OVFC, and on weekends at the Carp and Ottawa Landsdowne Farmer?s Markets. Please email us at rainbowheritage(at)gmail.com for any comments, questions, or suggestions you may have.
Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We use certified organic growing practices; no GMOs. Cover crops and composted manure fromthe grass-fed beef on the farm provide fertility for the gardens. Crops rotation, protection and prevention replace pesticides in our production practices.
We grow many heirloom vegetable varieties including carrots, tomatoes, squash, lettuce, onions, and potatoes. Our rich clay loam soil makes for some very sweet root veggies like carrots, beets and onions. Our farm has many ongoing ecological projects including planting native species of trees and shrubs to create wildlife habitat and food sources, stream bank rehabilitation and using alternative energy sources (solar, wind and passive cooling/warming of our rootcellar).
