Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents75 acres · Woodstock, ON
Our farming adventure began in the Spring of 2015 on a 15 acre farm. In 2020 we moved to a 75-acre farm just outside of Woodstock, Ontario. Carl's childhood passion of animal husbandry was given a new purpose when our family made a conscious decision to change the way we related to our food. We began a family quest to eat locally and sustainably. As our little farm grew we developed relationships with our greater community and Greener Pastures was born! As our farming adventure continues, we are loving that each day brings new opportunities for learning. We invite you to join us as we continue to seek greener pastures! While here, be sure to visit the On-Farm Shoppe for fresh eggs, meats, and other great local products.

Overview

About

Walk where Canada’s earliest inhabitants did and imagine the Attiwandaron longhouses and palisade walls that once stood proudly at Southwold Earthworks National Historic Site. Close your eyes and imagine a rare fortified village of 800-900 Attiwandaron, also known as the Neutral Iroquois, who inhabited Southwold from 1500 to 1650 AD.

When to go
