Our farming philosophy is based on the principles of traditional small scale farming which characterized agriculture up until the 1940s. Prior to WWII “organic farming” was not a concept, it was simply the norm. In the decades that followed farms abandoned traditional farming knowledge and methods in favour of a new system, which relied on fossil fuel based inputs. Today, as the world experiences the instability of rapidly dwindling fossil fuel energy, agriculture is at a crossroads between continuing along the path we are currently on, or looking to our agricultural roots to see if traditional knowledge will help us meet the food production challenges of the future. We believe that the return of small farms will be the next agricultural revolution, and Sleepy G Farm is excited to be a part of it!
