The humble beginnings of Terramor Farm coincided heavily with the blossoming of our relationship. When we began dating in 2012 we shared a passion for visiting Luke’s family farm in White Lake, helping with the daily tasks, enjoying the scenery and the great lunches prepared from the farm’s bounty. As the harvests were coming in we wanted to have an opportunity to share the experience and benefits of farm fresh vegetables with our close friends back in Ottawa. A very casual system of group texts and weekly box deliveries was established for our initial 5 members. The birth of our first CSA (veggie box) program was extremely well received, word of mouth spread, and in that first summer we saw a growth to 20 members. After another successful season and more growth we quickly realized that providing delicious and nutritious vegetables to our friends could be more than just a pastime, it could be a livelihood!
Our 1st year in business (2015) we took the dive, leased a piece of the farm and began our own farming venture. We formalized our registration program, offering ‘shares’ in the harvest, which was an intimidating commitment, but well worth the hard work and planning. Our members have been loving it! Fast forward to now, we are farming on a beautiful little plot of land located in Burnstown, 50 minutes west of Ottawa. This has been a wild ride and this great step should allow us to continue to provide amazing vegetables to our community that is Ottawa and the Valley for years to come!
