Know your local farmer

So many people have no idea where their food comes from or our how it was grown. They’ve lost touch with
the story and people behind their food. And that’s a problem.

Founded in Ayr

Our Farm

Who we are

We are Ben and Kate Constable and we have been living at Fresh Ayr Farm since 2016 with our dogs Peigi and Nessa.

We are driven by two guiding principles in our farming. First, all animals on our farm must be raised compassionately and allowed to lead safe and respected lives. We feel this is very important for our livestock and that it ultimately makes a difference to the food we eat. Second, all crops must be grown in accordance with organic principles. We believe this helps to protect our health as farmers, improves the local environment, and provides you with the most nutritious food.

To provide delicious, nutritious, compassionate, and sustainable food to our local foodshed. We are dedicated to being an equitable employer of local people and giving back to our community.

About Us

We are a small farm run by Ben and Kate Constable just outside of Ayr, Ontario. We strive to raise vegetables and animals as naturally, respectfully and compassionately as possible while bringing amazing flavour to your table.

Fresh Ayr Farm was established in 2016 with just a few chickens, our rescue dog Nessa, and a dream to grow food for our foodshed. Since then, we have expanded to many more chickens, another dog named Peigi, a flock of sheep and a lot more vegetables! As we have grown, we have been fortunate to employ some great local help on the farm to work along side us.

Around the farm

Around the farm you will see our sheep and chickens rotating through the pastures creating vital nutrients for our crops. We utilize cover crops to preserve topsoil and return nutrients while the ground is resting between vegetable harvests. We also use a caterpillar tunnel and row covers to extend the growing season and keep pesky bugs off!

Mission Statement

To provide delicious, nutritious, compassionate, and sustainable food to our local foodshed.
We are dedicated to being an equitable employer of local people and giving back to our community.

What our customers are saying

We love the support and we love to hear from you!

Throughout the season my family enjoyed the superior flavour of organically grown crops; and the opportunity to buy free range chickens was a delicious bonus!

The taste, quality and variety cannot be matched in any grocery store.  Add to that the convenience of local delivery.

Our weekly delivery of freshly harvested, delicious vegetables from Fresh Ayr Farm brings me back to those wonderful summer days when I grew up on a farm.

Fresh Ayr Farm is amazing. Their fresh-picked vegetables were so good that we made them the centerpiece of our meals each week.
