REGENERATIVE FARMING

Hoppy Fields Farm is looking for individuals who are passionate about regenerative farming practises and community supported agriculture!

About us — Hoppy Fields Farm is a small, organically run vegetable farm located just outside of Fergus, Ontario.

We produce a large variety of vegetables which are distributed weekly to our CSA members and local restaurants. It is owned and operated by TJ Radcliffe, who developed an interest in organic and regenerative food production techniques while completing a University degree in Geography and Environmental Science in Montreal.
