Hello, my name is Andrew Courtney. I am the farmer behind a still, small farm. I grow vegetables and a few herbs. I have 10+ years of experience growing vegetables and 4 years of experience running a CSA weekly box program.
I chose to pursue farming and working in a field because it is a necessary vocation and an age-old one, stewarding the earth. Farming, in a natural sense, pushes both my mind and body to mature and be used to their full potential, while at the same time consistently reminds me of my own limitations. Begin a farmer is exhilarating and humbling. a still, small farm is located between Kincardine and Ripley, at 2134 Concession 10.
a still, small farm’ is set on 3 acres, located between Kincardine and Ripley, and is dedicated to growing nutrient dense, intensively grown vegetables. The focus is on greens and leaf crops, small, loose leaf greens that are commonly used to make salads, and larger greens to add in stir fries, cook in a hot meal or added to smoothies and juices. The mission for the farm is to grow nutritious, flavourful food while at the same time continually improving quality of the earth that the food is grown in and the immediate environment.
a still, small farm is set on 3 acres, located between Kincardine and Ripley. The farm is dedicated to producing nutrient dense, intensively grown vegetables. The focus is on directly seeded loose leaf greens and salad crops like radish and turnip that have a short maturity date. Standard back garden favourites are also grown, like carrots, beans, snap peas and beets. My manifesto, as a farmer, is to grow nutritious, flavourful, freshly harvested and safely handled food using organic growing methods, exceeding the expectations of my neighbouring community in quality of produce, accountability and transparency. I pledge to grow for the immediate communities of Kincardine, Ripley, Point Clark and Tiverton, strengthening the local food supply chain while simultaneously improving the richly fertile land I am blessed to grow on.
All of the produce grown on the farm is sold through the Greens Subscription, which is based off of a CSA model. With the Greens Subscription, my goal is to offer the bounty of the farm entirely to the immediate local community, with no middleman required, establishing a direct link, straight from our farm and soil to your kitchen and table.
For the 2020 season, I will be offering the Greens Subscription to Kincardine and area, as well as to Stratford, as I used to farm in that area for several years. Please read the details for the area that you live in.
