Its spring right?! I think so, the month and calendar tell me so but what my window shows me is less convincing. It seems to be harder and harder to define the lines between seasons. With a cold start to […]
Three Forks Farm
Our mission is simple: Raise wholesome, nutrient dense food using farming practices that respect the natural tendencies of our animals and the sustainability of our farmland. Located in the Kawarthas, we raise animals on pasture, in natural social groupings, using Non-GMO grains.
We want you to know where and how your food was raised and for you to be able to ask questions of the farmers who produced it. In this age of confusing food labelling, we’re committed to building customer relationships based on trust and transparency.
We’re proud to supply our local communities with delicious, naturally raised, pasture grazed foods.
8 Commitments From Three Forks Farm:

OCTOBER: Monthly Meat Box Begins
Orders due by August 31st
When we sit down for dinner as a family, we feel privileged to know where and how the meat on our plates was raised and we want the same for you – That is traceability. Buying from a local farm provides the opportunity for you to meet and ask questions of your farmer. Want to understand our process better? Go ahead and ask or, better yet, come see for yourself.
We think animals should be raised in an environment that allows them to express their natural tendencies and behaviours including foraging, roaming, resting and socializing. Every animal we raise has daily access to pasture, non-GMO grain and garden produce. In raising animals this way, we continue to build our farm’s fertile top-soil – a resource all life depends on.
As the saying goes – “You are what you eat”. Research confirms that pasture raised animals are better for you. This food has higher levels of protein, Omega-3 fats, vitamins and micro-nutrients and decreased levels of Omega-6 fats (this is good). In essence, the good stuff from our pastures ends up in your dinner.
