Our Farm

Greenshire Eco Farms is a permaculture farm (established 2009), run co-operatively, located 15 minutes east of Lindsay, Ontario. Our 100 acres is approximately 30% young forest and 70% meadow. We aim to provide the community with sustainably grown food, permaculture living examples, alternative equine education and equine-assisted learning for humans, eco/agritourism, educational opportunities and a showcase for local talent. Who we are.

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

Food

* Sustainable agriculture

* Local food security

* No chemicals

* Vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, wild edibles

* We offer tours of our budding food forests and teach permaculture methods that others may duplicate in their own rural or urban areas

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 the Permaculture way of living in harmony with Nature, with all parts of the whole having multiple uses and purposes.
