The Farm - Our Story

Our Story

The Farm


Roots Down Organic Farm is located north of Gananoque in the heart of the Frontenac Biosphere.

Here, five eco-regions merge with the highest per acre biodiversity in all of Canada.

Its a pretty special place. Our fields were first cleared in the 1850’s and have been farmed ever since. We are reminded of this history by the many horseshoes we find in the fields, the ancient equipment we find in the treelines, and the remains of the old homestead and barn. Our fields are woven in amongst the forest, providing habitat for threatened species such as black rat snakes and blandings turtles. With each passing year, we continue to be amazed at the number of different plants and animals who call this farm their home.

We continue to view farming as a challenging, yet rewarding occupation, and relish our role in contributing to a vibrant local food system.
