Welcome Whippletree Farm!

Posted on by Michael Caplan

Nicole and Stewart believe in the power of the horse.  They run Whippletree Farm with Deedee and Stormy, their Suffolk Punch draft horses.  Located in Round Hill, Nova Scotia -- just outside of the historic and artistic town of Annapolis Royal -- they practice ecological farming and forestry in a quintessentially "horsing" way.

On the farming side, Whippletree offers a 20 week summer CSA serving Annapolis Royal and Bridgetown.  Their CSA share consists of 8-10 items per week -- a generous amount of vegetables suited for a family of 2 adults and 2-3 children, or for a couple who likes to cook from scratch and eat a lot of vegetables.  You can also find their goods at the Annapolis Royal Farmers' and Traders' Market throughout the summer, and the Historic Gardens in the fall.

 

Deedee and Stormy are a key component to the farm operation, but also to their forestry practice too in the fall and winter.  The woodlots that they manged are newly Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified and are managed according to restorative forestry principles.  They offer FSC firewood and in the future will have air-dried lumber.
 
If you are in the  Annapolis Royal or Bridgetown area, you should consider supporting Nicole and Stewart's farm by joining the Whippletree Farm CSA.
