The Rutabaga Ranch is a organic vegetable farm located in Brinston, Ontario. We use organic and regenerative agriculture methods to produce high quality vegetables that are as good for the environment as they are for health and wellness. We have an on-site farm stand, participate in the the Lansdowne farmers market. We also supply some wonderful local restaurants and have a CSA program. Check out our socials and website to see if you fit the vibe of the ranch and can jive with our flock of funky chickens who make up our farm team.
Market Gardening is very straining mentally and physically. But we believe with the right team we can all lighten each others load, and have a helluva good season together
