Brand-New Bootstrap Book!

DATELINE December 2020: I just released 'Bootstrap Survival Garden', just in time for you to plan your 2021 garden.

This book compresses what we've learned about growing food in over 20 years at New Terra Farm.

In a protracted emergency, Job #1 is to feed yourself and your family. If you are able to grow a significant portion of your own food, you are that much more likely to survive and thrive.

So, who are we (and why are we perpetrating bad poetry)? New Terra Farm is a small family-owned business located near Merrickville, Ontario. We grow a lot of our own veggies and meats, with limited quantities for sale. Trust us, we grow-it better than we po-et!

Our guiding philosophy . . .

Natural is better! Foods grown organically have more of the good stuff (vitamins, minerals and other factors that promote good health) and less of the bad stuff (i.e. herbicides and pesticides) in them. If you are as concerned as we are about what's in the food you eat, then go natural! Get more information about this topic (some very scary!) via the links and reports on our Organic Advantage page.

Farm grown is better! Purchasing directly from organic farms and farmers' markets helps guarantee fresh produce. Farmers' markets and home delivery food basket programs (also known as Community Supported Agriculture or CSA) are a great source of natural and organic food for your family.

We day-range our poultry on pasture - NO confinement

Pasture-raised is better! There is growing evidence to show that raising animals on pasture is better for the animal, better for the farmer, better for the environment and produces food that is better for the consumer. Find out more on our Organic Farming and Animals Welfare page.

Local is better! Current statistics show that over 85% of natural and organic food eaten by Canadians comes from outside the country. It takes 1500 calories of petrochemical energy to get 1 calorie of food energy to Canada from California. That is the definition of 'not sustainable'!

Buy local, get great food, support your local grower and save the environment, all at the same time! Look for local, Ontario, or Canadian sources (preferably in that order) for natural foods and organic packaged and prepared foods as well.

Now what, oh wise yet humble farmer/poet?

You can follow the links to find sources and resources for natural and organic food in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. For the rest of the world, we have information about growing, cooking, preserving and enjoying good natural and organic food that's also good for you.

New Terra Farm Receives Innovation Award

New Terra Farm received the Premier's Award for Agri-food Innovation Excellence for our innovative small farm marketing and management model. Find out more about the award on our New Terra Farm page, or Contact da Farm for details.

Suzie immediately grabbed the plaque, wouldn't let go

The award is just one reason we believe that there's never been a better time to be a market gardener! Demand for fresh, natural and organic food is soaring: the market in North America is growing by at least 20% annually.

If you are a small farmer (or are thinking about starting a market garden), don't miss finding out more about about our prize-winning market gardening model and take home some lessons from our efforts to launch a successful small farm (without having to spend a fortune.) Hey, they gave us the award, we must have done something right!

This was our first Bootstrap Book - now updated for 2020

We didn't have a lot of money, or equipment, or a huge farm, but we found a way to make our farm work anyway. If that describes your situation, you might want to check out the Bootstrap Market Gardening book, to find out how we did it!

Farmers (and all you others!) Want a website that works, guaranteed?

Always wanted a web site for your business but didn't know how to go about it? Find out how we grew this web site. p.s. you don't need to be a farmer to take advantage of this (and you don't need to be an HTML programmer to build a working website!)
