The County Bounty is currently seeking applicants for the position of Farm Hand!
The County Bounty Farm is a non-certified organic vegetable farm just outside of Picton, Ontario. Established in 2016, we focus on growing for a small CSA, farmers markets and custom growing for restaurants in PEC. The farm was created in response to a need for a local and sustainable food system to help with the battle against climate change and to increase the resourcefulness, resilience and responsibility of PEC and those who live here.
