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.
