The Organic Farmer blog started with an intention to keep it as a photo journal which can be accessed online at any time from any place in the world. We wanted to record our journey from day 1 to where we are today as growers of organic fruits and vegetables.
Hello, we’re Danuta and Vitoldus and we invite you to join our blog. We intend that we are Permaculture Organic Growers/Farmers contributing to the highest good of the Universe. Today we grow a variety of organic vegetables mostly for ourselves and selling excess of vegetables to our friends and a local organic fruit and vegetable store.
It is our intention to share our journey with subscribers and visitors to OrganicFarmer.blog. We intent that this website also serves as educational platform where you will be able to learn different types of fruit and vegetables and their stages of growth from a tiny seed to the harvest. Through short articles, you will discover benefits that each of the organic fruits and vegetables bring to your health including healthy recipes and information on vitamins and minerals.
As we work the land, each day we build new skills that are essential to succeed in future organic agricultural fields. Our organic vegetables farming experience takes place on a 6,000 sq ft leased land at McVeen Farm in Brampton, Ontario.
The process of learning to become organic fruit and vegetable growers does have its challenges. Regardless, working on the field amending the soil and growing vegetables brings us full of joy and at the end of each day we get a feeling of an accomplishment; as if we were part of a solution.
Having lived in and traveled to different countries, performed a variety of work and with over 15 years experience in the corporate world both of us have developed a solid understanding that skills do not come just from reading but rather from hands-on experience. With limited resources on our side, we decided to dive into learning organic farming by simply farming.
It is our understanding that organic farming is a journey and that it may take few months or even years to become a skilled organic grower. With that in mind, we have a strong drive to study and apply all gained knowledge from books, workshops or simply hands-on experience in order to grow organic healthy and nutritious fruit and vegetables for others to enjoy.
