Tiny Monster is a 1/4 acre market garden located on Treaty 1 Territory in Lorette, Manitoba. Producing a diverse and balanced variety of vegetables, using hand-tools, regenerative practices, and with a focus on building healthy soil which in turn supports healthy plants, Tiny Monster is a true example of human-scale agriculture. For our family, this translates into a life engaged with nature, engaged with community, and engaged with meaningful, challenging, and healthy work. The result of this labour is an abundance of local, nutritious, and delicious vegetables, grown to the highest ecological and culinary standards, by nurturing hands.
In addition to growing vegetables, we also forage mushrooms and berries from the forests of Manitoba. These wild treats are highly seasonal, climatically temperamental, and their sustainable harvest requires hours of labour and careful observation. As with our vegetables, the effort is well worth it.
