The Farm

The roots of “THE FARM” begin as far back as 1906, when Pawlo (Paul) Ditz and Maryna (Sytynk) decided to immigrate to Canada. They left their beloved village Soroka in Husiatyn, a district of the province of Halychyna in Western Ukraine. They travelled many miles by wagon to Ternopol, Ukraine, then by train to Hamburg, Germany. After 18 days on a stormy rough sea, they landed in Halifax. The couple preceded to Manitoba, where they were met by Michael Sytynk, Maryna’s father. They stayed in his home, eight miles northeast of Oakburn, where “THE FARM” officially began as a homestead. It continues to produce a bounty of vegetables every year under the Ditz name, now owned and operated by Paul and Maryna’s grandson, Kelly.

On several occasions, while Kelly was preparing to leave Winnipeg and visit his family’s homestead for a few days, he would be asked by a friend where he was going. Kelly’s reply was always “THE FARM” – since then, the name has been imprinted on the third-generation piece of land. For Kelly, producing food using only organic methods come second nature. Having grown up on “THE FARM”, Kelly is very familiar with the 227 acres of the soil that surrounds his family’s homestead. The land which has grown alfalfa, barley, canola, oats, peas, wheat and vegetables has always been grown organically. Kelly understands and appreciates the value of organic farming as he has served on the Manitoba Organic Alliance (MOA) for two years.

Kelly uses environmentally friendly and sustainable practices. This involves the saving of seeds from past healthy and natural plants for next year’s crop. He continues to produce and sell a wide variety of vegetables every growing season that he sells to a variety of customers in Winnipeg and the surrounding area of “THE FARM”.

Hnatiuk Market Gardens

We are a 3rd generation family of Market Gardeners located in East St Paul just 10 km North East of Winnipeg, growing 20+ acres. We practice sustainable agriculture along with systemic crop rotation, adding compost matter, keeping nutrients in and expanding our chemical-free practices. We supply local vegetable stands as well as garden centres and stores in the City of Winnipeg with a wide variety of vegetables picked daily. We employ local students and adults throughout the growing season. You can find us on Sundays 10-2pm at the East St. Paul Farmers’ Market, 302 Hoddinott Road from late June to late September. Our produce is also sold at Nedohin Gardens vegetable stand 3969 Henderson Highway (Open July 1 – October 31, 2020)

We have recently begun converting about 1 acre to permanent beds, densely planted produce, bringing in compost for the beds and wood chips for the paths. We are also adding fruit trees and berry bushes. Once completed there will then be no tractor cultivation on this area, following mother nature’s way of growing. We hope to expand this practice to other acreage in the future.

We grow over 40 varieties of chemical-free vegetables, fruits and herbs all of which are non-GMO. Our CSA program in 2020 will run for 16 weeks. Pick-up is at our farm in East St Paul between 5-7 pm every Thursday starting June 25th, ending with a large Thanksgiving package on October 8th which includes a variety of pumpkins!
We offer full shares (family of 4) and half shares (family of 2) and also have home delivery options as well.
