The Farm

Farm Yellow Tomato

Knuckle Down Farm is a small-scale organic market garden sitting on a quiet back-channel of the Trent River. We grow over fifty varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers with care and mostly hand tools. Established in 2012, Knuckle Down started on land borrowed at reroot organic farm. In 2014 we moved to our very own farm near Frankford, Campbellford, and Stirling Ontario.

The Farmer

Farmer Tomato

Jenny took a somewhat circuitous route to farming. Helping out at a friend’s farm on a cold, rainy day, she realized that despite being exhausted, shivering, and covered in mud she was happier than when at a desk. Her academic background in Environmental Studies (B.E.S.) and Environmental Design (M.E.Des.) made the decision to farm organically an obvious one and she has been doing so full-time since 2010.
