Strengthening community through agriculture.

Hello! Bonjour! Kwe’!

We are Vanessa and Will, the energetic caretakers of the Honeywwoofer Homestead where we experiment in regenerative agriculture.

Ever since our honeymoon in 2015 when we volunteered on farms in Canada and the USA, we have been dreaming of owning our own slice of Canadian soil. In 2020 that was made possible when we moved to East Dalhousie, Nova Scotia.

As a business our goal is to offer nutrient dense foods, ethical gardening and farming products, and earth-conscious education. We also do some pretty creative upcycles (we reinvent junk).

We believe everything is connected from how we treat the soil, to how we treat our livestock, to how we treat our neighbors and ourselves.

We hope to see you at the market or on the farm!

In the words of Vanessa’s late grandmother, a lady who farmed her way through the Great Depression,

“Thanks for calling, thanks for coming, come back when you can.” 

Our Mantras

Everything is an experiment.

When we know better, we do better.
