Description

Nestled in the beautiful Gatineau Hills just 5 minutes from the village of Wakefield, Quebec, Rock’s End Farm is a 300-acre certified organic farm providing sustainably raised meats and wool to the members of our community. We raise sheep for wool and meat, beef cattle, dairy cattle (for home consumption), pastured pork, and pastured poultry.

We provide our products to the public via farmgate sales, home-delivery and neighbourhood drop sites, and sales at the farmers’ market and craft fairs (some of these cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19). You can read more about our farm on our website, www.RocksEndFarm.ca.

We use regenerative and organic practices to ensure that our farm enhances water quality, biodiversity, and soil health. With our animals, we use rotational grazing as a tool to improve soil health and animal health and well-being. We borrow concepts from permaculture and holistic management to help us create a resilient, ecologically abundant, farm system. Our farm is a lively environment rich in learning opportunities. Through partnerships and collaborations, we work together with other local farmers to improve our farms and create a stronger local food economy.
