Chick-a-biddy Acres operates on a 72 acre farm near Peterborough, in the beautiful Trent Hills. It is surrounded by lush pastures, dairy farms, woods and many rivers. The area is largely free of big scale mono-crop farming which ensures clean and relatively pesticide free surroundings. Chick-a-biddy Acres is now 20 years old and continues to grow and blossom. We constructed 4 greenhouses and a custom designed root cellar, which has allowed us to grow and sell vegetables all year long. Our garden area has expanded to 4 acres, producing a an incredible assortment of delicious veggies.
