About our Farm
Kendal Hills Farm is 70 acres of rolling hills, forest, orchard and pasture located in the ecologically sensitive Oak Ridges Moraine. We raise mushrooms, eggs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, and pork. Dave and Emily are committed to the principles of regenerative agriculture, working with the land to enrich soils, improve watersheds and respect the plants and animals that call this place home.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, our farm also became home to the new Green Circle Food Hub and Graze & Gather, a virtual farmers market that works with small farms and food producers to bring local, sustainable food to households across the GTA. Through our work at Kendal Hills and the Green Circle, we dedicate ourselves to create a community of local farmers and food lovers for the future well being of people and the planet.
