“Little farms” seek to connect in Waterloo Region

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A couple of hundred metres off Queen’s Bush Road in Wellesley, you’ll find Muddy Creek Farm owned and operated by Melissa Winkler.

Despite its setting in the rural township, the quarter-acre farm is situated beside a village residential area and only a few blocks from a chop house, a computer repair shop and a financial services business.

Muddy Creek is, in that sense, something of an “urban” farm and one that, its size notwithstanding, is dedicated to farming in an ecologically friendly way to provide fresh food to the community through its weekly vegetable boxes.

Over the last several years, a number of small or micro farms with unique qualities have appeared that are similarly dedicated to sustainable agriculture that nurtures the soil and environment and the community around it.
