Meadowlark Rise Farm is a permaculture farm based off Mark Shepard's Restorative Agriculture approach. Justin worked with Mark learning the skills to develop his own project. Organically certified in Canada for 9 years producing fruits, nuts, and vegetables for a CSA and a few local restaurant clients in climate zone 3b. This is a family operated farm with Justin's parents helping when and where they can. Being just one person running a business, homesteading, and personal life is taxing and always looking for help progressing and maintaining the project.

Just an hour from Montreal or Ottawa, this experience gives you the feeling of being away from it all but still close enough to the big cities to practice permaculture and restorative agriculture.
