Haven Farms is a small 7 acre hobby farm in the little town of Linden, Manitoba. Here, we have many gardens, the beginnings of a new orchard, horses, goats, cats, chickens, and bees; all of which work together on our little farm. We use the manure from the animals to enrich the soil of the gardens, goats are for milk which we use for cheese and soaps, the cats help with the pests, we collect eggs from our chickens daily, and the bees give us honey and wax and help pollinate our gardens and orchards. With this, we are able to offer a large variety of unique goods through our summer CSA program. While we’re not certified organic, we do strive for it and we do care for ourselves as much as our animals, so we do not use any herbicides or pesticides on any of our food or anywhere else around the farm. We are also working towards being a zero-waste farm, so you will receive little to no waste packaging that would need to be discarded. Any packaging supplied can be returned or composted.
Our CSA program runs 12-16 weeks, starting mid/late June and runs until early/mid October, and provides a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, eggs, jams, and soaps. We’ll also be at the local farmers markets in Winnipeg throughout the summer. Follow us on our Facebook page to see where we’ll be, and you can sign up for shares through our website!
