FARM BIO

Wild Earth Farms is run by Jeffrey and Janna Veenstra, located north east of Winnipeg between Oakbank and Bird's Hill park. All the produce is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.

Their CSA season is 20 weeks long from June until the end of October with 5 CSA pick up locations (North Kildonan, St. Boniface, the farm, Springfield, and Wolseley), with a separate winter CSA in November and December. You can also find their vegetables at the Pineridge Hollow Farmer's Market every Saturday in the summer, Thursdays at the Downtown Farmers Market, and at the Alleyways Market on the First Friday of the month.
Wild Earth Farms also supplies many restaurants in the area.
