Earth Day at the farm
Tomorrow (Wednesday, April 22nd) is Earth Day and we are marking the occasion with a "How-to build your own compost bin" activity for all ages. Meet at the farm stand at 1736 Church Street at 4:30pm (rain or shine!) for a hands-on tutorial that will demonstrate how you can make your own composting bin from a plastic garbage can.

We are developing a small scale long line flax fibre processing machinery to transform retted flax into fine linen yarn.
We are offering an alternative to globalized textile industry.
We value sustainable economies.
We hope our equipment will generate localized economic growth in smaller, intentional and rural communities.
We will provide small scale and affordable equipment, expert advice, installation & technical support, and service relating to all aspects of growing and processing flax into fine linen.
We like purple - flax has a purplish blue flower.
We want to see flax products of all kinds available in Atlantic Canada grown and processed in Atlantic Canada.
