Front Porch Farm is a mixed farm speciallizing in high quality organic vegetables. We sell through a CSA, farmers markets and to local restaurants. We also pasture about 15 sheep, 24 laying hens and use our donkey Jerry as livestock protection and also to perform various tasks around the farm.
We grow 1.5 acres vegetables (and some fruit) on permanent raised beds in a no-till system.
Our farm also takes on a cultural role in the community by hosting workshops, concerts and other gatherings.
The Margaree is a great community located on the west coast of Cape Breton Island. It's a great place to spend a season with nearby beaches, rivers, square dances, hiking trails and more.
