Sterling Hill Farm wants to bring regenerative farming to your table. Specializing in pasture-raised pork, poultry, and fresh vegetables, farm owners Brad and Lisa Elford strive to treat the land and their animals with love and respect. The 100-acre property sits on the outskirts of the Muskoka’s and Algonquin Park in northern Ontario.
After being abandoned for more than 40 years, the couple purchased the property, and with the help of their animals, have put a tremendous amount of work into bringing it back to its original glory. They go above and beyond by practicing rotational grazing and using cover crops to ensure the soil is never left bare and protect against erosion. The animals live strictly outdoors, are fed only top-quality feed, and are free to roam and live their best lives possible. The result is less-stressed livestock and better-tasting meat.
There is still so much work to be done, and yet, the Elford’s wouldn’t trade regenerative farming practices for anything. They do it because they want their two boys to have a world to live in when they grow up. They understand that if we all work together, we can reverse global warming and create a better way of life for future generations.
Being a part of the change.
