Northern Ontario Farmers Market Convention

On a quarterly basis, we host an event where farmers, partners, and customers can buy, sell, and trade their products. We provide booths, snacks and refreshments, and a safe, comfortable space for the public. These are organized in different venues around Northern Ontario, and people of all ages are welcome to join.

We also partner with professionals from all over Canada to host workshops/seminars or sponsor our event. The event is free of charge and is open to the public. For concessionaire applications or partnership proposals, contact us to discuss your ideas.

Organic Farming Innovation

The Ontario CSA Farm has been awarded and duly acknowledged by the Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance (NOFIA) for our innovative organic farming methods. With their support, we have offered our team trips to various farms, homesteads, and plantations so they can further explore, discover, and study about vegetable farming.

Additionally, we continue to develop new practices to share with the community. NOFIA invites members of the Soil Association (UK) on an annual basis, so we can receive real-time consultation from fellow professionals. They also collaborate with us to provide free e-books and webinars about the food and farming industry.

Eco-Friendly Drive

In an effort to continuously promote sustainability, we gather junks from our partner establishments and customers then recycle them on our farm. Last year, we gathered plastic bottles to create “Ecobricks” and donated them to non-profit organizations or groups to use as furniture or construction projects.

During the previous years, we’ve also collected food waste and used them to create compost and deliver them to nearby farms in our area. The possibilities are endless, and this project helps us prove how important sustainability is. If you have an idea for our upcoming eco-friendly drives, please let us know!
