FARM BIO

Will and Jennifer moved to Big Oak Farm in 2012, responding to a call to grow trustworthy food and to raise their children in wide open spaces. Both grew up rurally and market gardened near Winnipeg for several years. They were involved in the West Broadway Good Food Club as well as organizers of 100 Mile Manitoba. Will, Jennifer, Zavi and Matoli live off the land raising vegetables, fruits, herbs, pigs, chickens, sheep, geese and bees. Big Oak Farm is especially proud of its growing flock of purebred heritage Icelandic sheep and the 76-year-old barn which they are restoring.
