The Spring Farm is a small-scale farm situated in downtown Huntsville, Ontario that uses 100% natural and organic methods to provide locally grown vegetables. We raise turkey, chicken and sell farm fresh eggs. The farm is located only five kilometres from downtown Huntsville, making our product truly local.
With the popular demand for local, organic food, The Spring Farm is growing quickly. We grow and supply fresh vegetables and unique varieties of microgreens to a number of local restaurants and retail stores across Muskoka. We also provide workshops and education to our community, school groups and even inmates on how to grow and cook organic food.
