Bountywoods Farm

Bountywoods Farm is a 10 acre hillside farm near the Shubenacadie River, just south of South Maitland, NS. We are a small family farm with a large diversity of naturally grown products. This stems from our belief that a variety of species brings more stability to the ecosystem. Bountywoods Farm is dedicated to growing healthy foods without the use of harmful products such as GMO seeds and plants, and synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. We try to promote the health and fertility of the soil, the plants and the animals under our stewardship, knowing the result is ultimately better health for us as the farmers, and you the consumer.  We are using permaculture and organic growing methods on our sustainably managed soils.  We produce naturally grown fresh vegetables, berries, fruits, herbs & cut flowers; soap; pasture raised organically fed chicken & turkey; and pastured eggs.

Suprima Farm

Suprima Farms Ltd. was founded in 1992 with the still current mission to provide you with food products grown locally, in an ecologically sustainable manner, without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and preservatives, processed as naturally as possible to optimize safety, nutritional value and flavor. During the past 23 years we have continued raising the bar. We grow our own fresh unsprayed apples and also make sweet apple cider with them. On our 14 acres of orchard we grow mostly scab resistant varieties like Redfree, Novamac, Prima and Novaspy which don’t require even organically acceptable fungicides to provide attractive apples for eating fresh and are also excellent for culinary purposes. The quality of our juice can be captured in the four words fresh, pure, tasty, local. We press every week using a blending strategy that guarantees the same rich lively flavor year round. We pay our help a living wage and are nearing our goal of growing the crop with only human energy.
