Welcome to Am Braigh Farm
Here at Am Braigh Farm we are dedicated to providing locally grown vegetables and eggs using organically sustainable methods. We strive to increase our soil fertility, lower our carbon footprint and build a strong vibrant local agricultural economy and communities not only here but throughout the world.
Keeping up with what is available
There are number of ways to check on what is available. If you wish to receive a weekly email, join our email list. You may follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Or, of course you may just stop by the roadside stand and pick up what you want.
What does Am Braigh Mean?
Am Braigh is a Gaelic phrase meaning higher ground or upland. The phrase is an apt one given our geographic location in the headwaters of the Dufferin County. A spring emanating from the farm is one of the sources of the Nottawasaga River. As well, spiritually we strive to create a higher ground to nourish and sustain our families, workers and our dedicated community of customers.
Specializing in Year-Round Vegetable Production
Over the course of the year we produce over 30 different types of vegetables. Using our greenhouses, both fixed and move-able, we have been able to extend our growing season so that we can offer fresh vegetables year round. In January it is not uncommon to have up to 15 different types of vegetables available.
Growing and buying local food increases our food security. We are not so dependent on bringing our food in from thousands of kilometres away so we are more immune to climate, environmental, political and economic events that can disrupt our modern food system.
As part of our mission to increase food security in our region we donate 1.5% of our sales to support our local food banks and school food programmes. Besides donating surplus food to local food banks we also support the Compass Run for Food.
