DARE TO MAKE A SPLASH

Splash goes a wave, so why don't we?

Ecological Farmers everywhere take heed!

We are more than organic. We are culture. We are diversity. We are from good land. We have good products. We have local and international answers. SPLASH!

Here on Glen Andrew Farm we press Organic Flax, Sunflower and Canola into oil. We have lots of help growing these crops from my wife's family at Pinehedge Farm. We help them by providing feed for their organic dairy cows with the by products from pressing these oilseeds.

We bottle the oil by hand, and once a week take it to the Ottawa Organic Farmers Market. There is music there sometimes, played by the farmers themselves. We also take some oil around to area health food stores. We are fresher than any other brand. We are local. We are recognized. We have stories to tell.

We will grow more oilseeds this year. Our children will grow. They will have more stories to tell. We will all go to a beach each summer on a hot and windy day. We will play and watch and listen.
