Shannon and Dan Vanlenthe live in what Dan proclaims is “God’s Country.” South Gillies, 40 km south of Thunder Bay, is a mecca of warm weather dotted with small farms and lots of families. Shannon has grown up gardening – it’s in the blood – and spent the summers of her youth employed at local greenhouses. She always knew she wanted land of her own to continue growing her plants, veggies, animals and her skill-set. Dan was raised on a goat and dairy cow farm and owned his own team of work horses at the age of 14.
Together with their 5 children they grow a variety of vegetables, operate a bedding plant greenhouse and raise pigs both as meat-for-sale and, as they grow, Nature’s best roto-tillers to turn up more gardens. Visit Shannon and Dan outside the market to see what’s in season.
