Fat of the Land Farm is part of the movement towards conscious eating.

Since 2010 we have been raising animals on our small, grass-based farm in Moscow, Ontario. We raise the kind of food we want our family to eat, that means no GMO’s, no antibiotics, and no hormones. It also means respecting the nature of our livestock. Cattle graze fresh daily paddocks, pigs root up the earth in the forest, and chickens scratch and peck the pasture looking for a tasty bite. Its a regenerative systems approach that is rebuilding the health of our soil, us farmers, and our community.

We are proud to serve the Ottawa and Kingston areas with our farmer-direct, buying club model. Order only what you want, then meet us at the scheduled time. Avoid the confusion of the meat counter. Know exactly what you are getting and who you are getting it from. Simple.
