- LIFE IN GENERAL
My entire life so far has been in Agriculture. I was raised & worked on a dairy farm as a boy and when older married and began our own dairy farm.
Along with my wife Jeanne and our two children we ran a very modern and highly productive Holstein herd of 80 milking cows. We farmed 800 acres under crop every year. This career saw a 30 year span. Throughout those years both Jeanne and I were involved as leaders for many 4H Clubs. I was also on the Holstein Club for many years as a director. I am currently the Chairperson for the Horse Plowing Committee for the Hastings County Plowing Match. I competitive plow at the Hastings Match as well as around Ontario at other county matches and at the International Match.
Throughout the years we raised and showed Registered Belgian Draft Horses. This led us to many horse shows around the province and sales of off spring (foals) to eastern and western Canada and several U.S. states.
A few years ago we traded in our dairy herd for a beefherd, pigs and chickens. We turned our milkhouse into a retail store where we sell Home Raised Black Angus Beef, Heritage Pork, Farm Fresh Eggs and Fresh Vegetables all raised naturally.
Along with this new adventure in farming we made the decision to tackle the farm work with old fashioned horse power.
We are now in the midst of obtaining a sustainable life style. We farm many less acres, grow and raise just about everything we eat. Canning, freezing, preserving all chemical free food.
Although many ideas are still in the works we have had great success to date with farming with our Belgian Horses. This approach has led us to teach seminars at home on a one-on-one basis for others wishing to do the same, and to teach students as far away as Lancaster, P.A. at Horse Progress Days
We also were invited to speak at their seminar on Horse Farming Practices.
These days we continue to "down size" to a more managable Homestead Farm for two people and continue to grow, raise and produce our own food.
We enjoy our two children and their spouses and 4 beautiful and lively grandkids, here at the farm as they enjoy pony rides, horse drawn sleighrides and observing new baby chicks or the antics of newborn piglets.
Let me share the knowledge to help you find or sell that large working farm, smaller acreage for a sustainable farm (Homestead Farm) or a residential or commercial property.
Please feel free to give me a call.
