We are Free Roots Farm, a small natural produce farm hidden among the beautiful ocean landscapes, rolling hills, and forests of Cape Breton Island, NS, Canada. Our core values on the farm are the same as with ourselves; to keep an open mind and always be evolving, learning, loving, and growing. We strive to live in harmony with nature and grow all of our produce with loving intention. We sow only non-GMO, heirloom seeds and use organic growing practices from start to finish.
From a young age neither of us put much thought into where our food came from, we just ate what we enjoyed, but as we grew older we began taking a deeper interest in the foods we put in our bodies. We learned that what we consume deeply affects our mind, body, and spirit. It became important for us to help provide natural, fresh, and local produce as an easily accessible option to our community. We believe that people should not have to seek out organically grown food, but instead have it readily available to them. We started our farm in hopes of helping the natural food movement gain traction in rural communities and inspire others to join the cause.
Free Roots Farm hosts work trade volunteers from all over the world. We aim to create a comfortable space where growers, creators, nurturers, builders, artists, inventors, musicians, and more can join us and share in life's experiences while contributing to the growth of our farm. With their help we are able to manage the daily demands of the garden beds and surrounding property. We welcome open-minded individuals with a strong work ethic, a willingness to learn, and a drive towards conscious growth.
