League of Extraordinary Farmers

The starter plants are growing and all of us farming at the Just Food Farm at 2389 Pepin Court in Ottawa, Ontario are preparing for a tremendous growing year.  We are part of the Just Food startup farms initiative, and though we represent separate and unique farm teams, we come together at the roadside to sell our organic products.

From July 6th to whenever the weather forces us to stop, you can find our ‘league of extraordinary farmers’ on the roadside at 2389 Pepin Court, Ottawa, ON Sundays 9am-2pm for our second season of selling fantastic, fresh local produce.
