Gardening and Farming to Develop Heart-Filled Human Capacity

apple blossomsAt LoonSong we have been practicing high quality gardening and farming since 2003, growing nourishing foods and cultivating vibrant community connections in and for the region around us.  After offering a wide range of vegetables and fruits through CSA and market garden for 8 years, we now have spent over 10 years growing oats, spelt, wheat, and rye using organic and Biodynamic practices and milling the grains with care, into stone-ground flours and rolled oats.  The flavor and freshness of our rolled oats are unique and delicious and will bring you back for more!

In 2017 LoonSong migrated!  From our farming base on Manitoulin Island we moved south, something that we considered for a quite a while, in response to family needs, farmland, markets and transportation.  We will stay gratefully connected with our northern web of farmers and friends, including keeping LoonSong products stocked at several northern locations.  And we are now actively engaging in our new communities in southern and eastern Ontario.

In 2017 we started planting in Northumberland County.   In 2018 we are glad to say that all of our farming will be here in Northumberland, in the hills south of Peterborough, between Rice Lake and Lake Ontario.   We will have our home base here, and are inspired by the growing community connections, the people and landscape and farmland we are finding.

We are excited to continue to grow our oats, spelt, wheat, and rye for you using organic and Biodynamic practices and milling the grains with care.  Our stone-ground flours and fresh rolled oats can be found in locations around Ontario.  See other pages on this website for where to find our products.

IMG_20170615_200125We are on track for acquiring a mill for finer-grind flours suited for bakeries this fall, and will continue to create our classic grainy flours too.  Our education and outreach will grow in new ways in this next phase, so stay tuned for all that’s coming next!
