    Our Farm

    Greenshire Eco Farms, located 15 minutes east of Lindsay, Ontario, was established as a co-operatively run permaculture farm in 2009. Our 100 acres is approximately 30% young forest and 70% meadow.

    For us, permaculture did not prove to be a financially viable growing model. We are looking for a commercial farmer(s) to become a majority shareholder(s) and grow organic, high-profit niche crops (see our ad on property guys). Permaculture, biodynamic and regenerative principles could certainly be incorporated and welcomed. Also carbon sequestration.

    Our logo, a world triad, comprises three focus areas:

    Food

    * Sustainable agriculture

    * Local food security

    * No chemicals

    * Vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, wild edibles

     

    Healing for Horses and for Humans Using Horses

    * Rehabilitation and re-homing of sick, injured, abused horses

    * Non-riding, equine-assisted learning for humans who want to make positive changes in their lives and achieve their potential — ultimately creating a healthier society

    * Natural horsemanship and horsekeeping demonstrations and lessons, including non-riding playing and hanging with horses (very de-stressing!)

     

    Sustainable Building and Agri-/Eco-tourism Destinations

    * This part of the triad logo is a vision for the future. We envision contracting the building of energy-efficient, fun places to live in and for visitors to stay while vacationing or taking our workshops.  We would love to become a venue for musicians’ and artists’ work.

     

    All three areas are intertwined and interconnected in Nature’s way of living in harmony, with all parts of the whole having multiple uses and purposes.
