FARM BIO

Located near Elie, MB on Treaty 1 territory, Hearts & Roots is a small-scale, certified organic vegetable, fruit and flower farm.

We are passionate about growing food organically and looking after the health of the land we call home. We grow more than 45 different fruits and vegetables on five acres without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. All of our seed is either organic or untreated and none of the species are GMO. For weed control we cultivate, hoe, flameweed or plant into biodegradable mulch. For soil health we use compost, organic fertilizers, and crop rotation. The farm is committed to responsible agriculture and the role it plays in an inspired community.

FARM PRACTICES

We think sustainability is the ability to harness the potential of what is available to you, without disregard for what might come next. It isn’t a principled, flat-footed stance, but a nimble intelligence that adapts and continues to learn. It’s bigger than you, and me. It's a long-term, wide lens, humbled economics that takes its environment and its populations into account. It’s never perfect, and never righteous: cooperation and support between autonomous agents are necessary to its survival. It can also make money.
