Marshall Buchanan & Kathleen Lindhorst

We farm 275 acres in the beautiful & rugged Upper Ottawa Valley, near Eganville. After years of consulting Kathleen (M.Sc. Nutrition, McGill 1997) and Marshall (M.Sc. Forestry & Environmental Studies, U of T, 1994), we could see that convenience was replacing nutrition and industrial farms supplied low cost food but at great cost to nature. In 2000 we started with 50 acres and combined our skills to grow produce and raise livestock in a caring and ecologically sustainable manner. In 2014 we opened our commercial kitchen to make gourmet foods using the organic (uncertified) meat and produce we grow.


vegetables, grass-fed Scottish Highland Beef, gourmet foods made from our own ingredients such as beet green perogies, sauerkraut perogies, all beef sausages, sausage rolls, squash ravioli, quiche and tortiere

Production Practices:

Vegetables – Organic Methods (uncertified).
Livestock – Scottish Highland cattle are raised in a closed herd, cow-calf operation giving us full control over animal care from birth to slaughter. We do not buy stockers. Cattle are exclusively grass-fed and are antibiotic and hormone free. Highland Cattle are particularly well suited to a grass-fed diet.
