Will Braun and Jennifer deGroot moved to Big Oak Farm in 2012 with a passion to grow trustworthy food and 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, herbs, fruits, honey, meats, eggs and fibre. Their flock of Icelandic sheep provides purebred registered breeding stock, wool and pelts.
