Our Mission

We are a small farm that works hard to preserve rare, heritage breeds;
promote biodiversity and sustainable agriculture; and strengthen community.

Through a series of seasonal events, festivals, workshops and resources,
we gather on a regular basis to have discussions that foster positive social change.

We rely on member support and participation to achieve these goals, because we’re stronger together.

Our Philosophy

Everyone should have a special place to go where you can reconnect with nature and remember where we came from.

A place where we can gather and teach, relearn bygone skills, and promote healthy, sustainable technology.

Farm under fire

Wholearth Farmstudio has been the centre of a great deal of public controversy in recent years. Shepherd Montana Jones urged the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) not to kill her healthy rare breed sheep after they demanded most of her flock killed on suspicion of a sheep disease called scrapie.  The CFIA is pursuing Montana Jones, raw milk advocate Michael Schmidt and Robert Pinnell with criminal charges related to the disappearance of Jones’s flock of rare heritage Shropshire sheep.

Now we’re trying to protect and preserve this special property, evolve into a new sustainable community model based on education and events, and regrow the farm as a friendly space for all.
