Farm & Farmer
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.
CSA Vegetable Shares
Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares give you a direct connection to the local farm where your vegetables are grown, and with the farmer who grows them. They also give you fresh, delicious, organic produce all summer. Weekly veggie shares can be picked-up from the farm near Stirling, Frankford, & Campbellford, or from a pick-up spot in Toronto’s West End.

- Long Weekends and Surprise Visitors — Knuckle Down News, Week 8 (8/7/2017) - I hope everyone’s enjoying this September-like end to the long weekend. Not the best beach weather, but great for getting those last forgotten transplants into the garden! There was enough heat last week that the tomatoes are finally ripening in the field and there may be a few too-big zucchinis coming your way, you just […]
