Community is everything.
…if you wanna go fast you go alone but if you want to go far you go together
We believe that by fostering relationships focusing on clear communication/intention with our partners it creates a mutual benefit to the business’ and the community.
Owners Tony and Linda Armstrong started off as our partners and have evolved into our neighbours. Working together with Foragers since 2017, our relationship has been the foundation of where we are today. Set in the rolling hills of Northumberland County, their 70-acre farm is a mixture of field, forest and wetland with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario. They live in an eco-friendly, sustainable, straw-bale home that they designed and built for their family and business. They host gatherings such as concerts and festivals, offer educational workshops, meet ups, maintain a homestead lifestyle involving community garden club members and so much more.
