Long Way Homestead

Anna Hunter and Luke Palka, along with their two sons, moved to Manitoba in the spring of 2015 and began a small farm east of Winnipeg.

They raise a small flock of Shetland sheep, and try to utilize holistic management principles in their farming and mill work.

In summer 2018 they started the only wool mill in Manitoba. They process any protein based fibre in their mill. They are committed to local fibre production and work to support other small-scale producers as well as promoting locally grown, produced and naturally dyed yarn and fibre.

The Honey Mine at Cooks Creek

Its our opinion that the bees do it best! That’s why we package only pure raw honey in every jar. Our honey is typically a blend of sunflower, sweet clover, canola, and wildflower, offering a light appearance and flavour. This means that our customers always get raw honey packed with the absolute minimum processing possible in order to maintain all the benefits of raw!

Our a small, family-run, apiary is located near Cooks Creek in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, Manitoba. The long hours of prairie sunlight, combined with a variety of high quality foraging sources, during our (relatively) short summers mean that our bees can provide us with 75 kg or more (150-175 lbs) of beautiful light-coloured honey per hive!We believe in using all the goodness the bees have to offer. That’s why we started our hand-crafted and all natural skin care products in the first place! Our aim is to produce small batches of natural skin care products using high quality ingredients including beeswax and raw honey from our very own hives. We are committed to making all products by hand to ensure every unit meets our high standards

Elm Rock Farm

Elm Rock Farm is a small, first-generation, vegetable farm located on Treaty 3 Territory, in the boreal shield ecozone. Preserving the biodiversity of plants, animals, and insects on our land is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we grow our produce on a small scale, relying primarily on manual labour instead of machinery, without the use of synthetic chemicals or fertilizers and with minimal tillage. 

The farm is owned and operated by Hannah and Jason, we both grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but have always felt a deep connection with nature. The inspiration to farm came in 2016 when Hannah worked on an organic fruit farm and from there we acquired land and have been working to start this market garden from scratch ever since.

We offer a variety of vegetables as well as value-added products, such as pickles! Our farm strives to create efficiencies through a closed loop system that recycles waste into nutrients, fosters biodiversity, and markets our produce close to home so that the food we grow does not have to travel far before reaching your plate.

We are currently only selling our products through CSA vegetable shares, though we have attended markets in the past and will likely do so again in the future.
