Walsh Forest Farms

Our goal is to feed ourselves and our community with healthy, wholesome, natural foods.  You can feel good knowing that your food was grown without any synthetic additives or sprays, and that your meat has been inspected and produced at an ontario-approved facility.  

If you stop by the farm to pick up products, or see us out in the community, say hello and let us know you've found our webpage!  We love meeting people and look forward to meeting you :)

Our Story 

Leaving a life of offices and commuting behind, Andrea & Brendan moved up to the farm in July 2020...mid-covid pandemic.  Our first farmer's market that fall was at Kate's Kountry Kitchen, the local truck stop.  We sold a few squash and cucumbers that we were able to harvest and when we watched a child spend his own money on a cucumber and take a big bite, I think we both knew that we were in the right place.  Doing the right thing for us, for our little family, and for the community and environment.  Small farming is a passion for us, and we hope to share it with all of our customers and friends.

Our Animals

We arrived with 2 house dogs in 2020, and now, 3 years later, we have:
  • 4 dogs (Franklin, Whiskey, Timber, Tango)
  • 5 cats (DougJudy, Rosa, Jake, MamaCat, Snowball)
  • 2 goats (Sally & Sugar)
  • 26 chickens 
  • 16 adult rabbits 
  • countless baby bunnies
Our plans for the coming future:
  • Add more laying hens
  • Add some pigs
  • Breed our two goats to raise their babies
The more the merrier, right?!

We're starting to get noticed...
