Wildhaven Permaculture Design and Family Farm
My name is Karin Wilds and I am the owner and principle farmer at Wildhaven Farm. Together with my family and a small group of like minded friends and local families interested in food security, we are working on developing Wildhaven Farm into a hub of food production and community. Using permaculture principles and design, we strive to grow a complete, local, omnivorous diet for our family and our CSA families. As our farm matures we hope to be able to offer complete food security for several families besides our own. In addition to food we also produce a variety of different resources like wool and hides for clothing and craft.
In addition to being a food producing farmer, I am also a permaculture designer with an interest in helping others in their journey to living a more regenerative livestyle. I will work with individuals and families in helping to make the transistion from our current land and ecosystem depleting lifestyles to that of one that works with natural systems to regenerate our landscapes and leave the earth healthier than what we start with. I am available for a variety of consultations from a simple chit chat about possibilities to fully implemented designs. Please feel free to take a look at my portfolio of projects I have worked on and inquire about fees and options.
Wildhaven Farm CSA and Work Shares
We believe very much in supporting a local economy and building community. Although our farm is mostly about providing food for our immediate family, we feel strongly that groups of people should be able to work together to provide necessities like food and clothing. Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) veggie box system is one way that we can connect with our community and have them feel like they are a part of their own food cycle. We encourage our CSA members to return their waste as compost that gets recycled back into the system and to visit the farm and even help with harvest if they wish. We currently only provide a limited summer CSA with optional egg add on but plan to expand to include winter veggie boxes, bulk storage and processing crops, meat shares, dairy goat herdshares and even fiber shares! Our goal is to eventually have our CSA customers be part of our "family" farm with the farm providing the majority of food needs for a small community of people. This is an ambitious goal but more than attainable if we work together!
In 2018, as part of our plan to grow into a larger community, we will be offering a limited amount of "work share" opportunities. These work shares will be communicated mostly VIA our facebook group and word of mouth but feel free to inquire about possible options at any time. A few of the ideas we are playing with are -
Weekly work for vegetable boxes -
Bulk harvest days -
Meat share -
Fibre share -
