....is a small, on the side business that we started in 2013 on our family's organic dairy farm (Vlodale Farm LTD), which is located about 3 miles southwest of Parkhill, Ontario. Our mission is to grow nutrient dense, chemical and antibiotic free, humanely raised Organic food for customers who are looking for an alternative from what the industrial agriculture and industrial food production systems have to offer. We want to raise our animals outside in the fresh air and in a natural environment so they can live their lives the way God intended them to live. We believe raising animals this way produces the most nutritious and best tasting food, as well as provides a very satisfying and enjoyable way of life for us. We started out by raising "Organic Fed Pastured Chicken" and marketed them directly to local customers. This year, we will be expanding into some new areas as well.
The past couple of years have been busy and exciting. We were married in August 2014, and moved to a farm house across the road from the Family Dairy Farm. We spent the fall slowly landscaping the house, mostly to keep water out of our basement. In September, we were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Theresa. She has brought so much joy to our lives. We are so excited to start this next stage of our lives.
Frank still works at home full time on the dairy farm, and Carrie is currently on maternity leave from our job working as a nurse in Parkhill and Strathroy, but it is our hope and dream to both eventually be able to work on the farm full time, and raise our family on a farm. We are hoping to slowly expand our business and be able to offer our customers more products.
We still have a lot to learn and every year presents its own challenges. Please be patient with us as we explore this new world of organic food production and local marketing. We would love to have you join us for the ride!!
