Tyler, Erin and their sapling Cypress are a family of foragers, market gardeners and outdoor enthusiast. Their journey began when volunteering on a variety of farms while traveling and woofing around Canada, South America, Asia, and the United States. They brought their knowledge back to their home town and began a volunteer group called We Grow Food where folks from around the neighbourhood would come together to help each other start backyard gardens and create a support group for people starting their first garden. With Erin’s background in a decade of wildcrafting and farm to kitchen-style cooking, within her community she offers Foragers Farms catering (wild/cultivated food), along with gardening alongside Tyler while raising their beautiful son at their yurt homestead. In her past she has helped start-up and run sustainably-minded restaurants like Lil Organic Kitchen Whitby/Cobourg, Cruda Cafe Toronto, Coco y Chia Mexico City, and Living Foods Malaysia. Tyler has a background as a tradesman and applies his welding/building skills to designing the farms infrastructure. A ninja at heart, he loves combining the natural movement of our bodies with his passion for growing food for Foragers Farms. His passion for living close to the land has his knowledge focused on homesteading and survival skills. Together, Erin and Tyler are the heart and soul of Foragers Farms. They decided to collaborate with partners Headwaters Community Farmand Education Centre in Cobourg Ontario to broaden their horizon with a solid team of enthusiastic growers, teachers, mentors, interns, and volunteers.

Nautilus Farm (Formerly Twin Pine Farm)
Located in the foothills of the Indian River, Nautilus Farm was founded with a strong vision of sustainability and stewardship of the earth. We strive to provide the highest quality, organically grown (currently non-certified) farm produce available to all at affordable prices. The market garden side of the business has become somewhat specialized in garlic production and now provides the community with a reliable source of premium seed garlic. The long term vision of the farm is to create a system of agroforestry where the natural forces that maintain forest systems are put to use growing food from fruit and nut trees. To that end, we have been planting out a great number of different perennial food producing trees and shrubs to determine which are the most suitable to our region and would be good candidates for larger scale diversified agroforesty. We are currently offering some of those perennials at the market for spring plantings.
