Art Farm is a an organic market farm in Northumberland County, near the village of Warkworth. Owners Lenni Workman and Brad Francis pursue their artistic careers when not working in the market-garden. The 28 acre farm was purchased in 1995 and organic certification through OCPRO was achieved 2 years later. Since 2017 sustainable production practices continue without organic certification.
Meet Lenni from mid-May to November 1, at the Cobourg Farmers’ Market and Fridays, noon-3 pm, at the Warkworth Market at the Mews. If you would like to know what we’re harvesting each week, please contact us by email or send a message at the Art Farm Produce Facebook page. Local sales have been a priority, using less fossil fuel to get to markets, and providing direct contact with the community.
Art Farm produce includes eggs, chicken, garlic, raspberries, potted greenhouse plants, and a wide variety of vegetables, with an emphasis on salad mixes and greens. Organic flowers for special occasions may be ordered.
The organic system has guided Lenni and Brad in the production of healthier, tastier food, and in the stewardship of the land in an ecologically sound manner.
Farm visits by appointment are very welcome.
