Ravensfield

North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program > Participating Mentor Farms

Ravensfield is a young, pioneer farm situated on the Canadian Shield (rough, rocky, not very much soil, lots of trees), one hour north of Kingston, Ontario. The core activity of the farm is a one-acre intensive market garden, worked largely with hand tools plus some help from horses. There are also goats, pigs, chickens and a small orchard has been started. Produce is marketed by CSA and at Kingston town market. Apprenticeship here focuses on gaining and understanding how the soil works and how soil, plants and animals all interact with each other and the air, water and the greater cosmos. Learning focus is on understanding the principle and theory behind organic agriculture and biodynamics.
