TOPIC: Mount Wolfe Farm offers a year round community supported agriculture (CSA) service for people who are interested in locally and ethically grown food. Using ecological and regenerative farm applications, the farm produces a variety of vegetables, herbs and free-range chickens. The farm also provides a full selection of foods produced by other local farmers and businesses including fruit, honey, maple syrup, preserves, home-made soup, baked goods, eggs, flour and other goodies.

Speaker: Mount Wolfe Farm’s Sarah Dolamore will talk about growing practices that reflect her family’s love of this land and their sense of responsibility for its long-term health. This is a responsibility they take very seriously. For the past 50 years, they have demonstrated how reforestation and conservation efforts can regenerate depleted farmland and improve biodiversity, soil health and ecological integrity.

Guided by their parents’ legacy and the current generation’s commitment to conservation of the land, their farming and forestry practices are grounded in ecological approaches that improve and enhance soil fertility, biodiversity and animal health. For example, allowing free-range chickens into fallow market garden plots to feed on insects fertilizes the soil for next season’s crops and provides a pest-management solution.
