Hi, I'm Abbey!

Or, as some like to call me, Abbey the Cattle Caretaker!

I am a born and raised farm kid and have been passionate about agriculture my entire life. I first began raising livestock when I was 10 years old. I am proud to provide the best care to all of my livestock, whether it is cattle, chickens, turkeys, or any other animal that strikes my fancy!

After completing my Diploma in Agriculture at Ridgetown Campus in 2019, I went on an “agventure” across Canada. I toured dozens of farms and worked several jobs, including herding cattle in the Quebec hills, driving a combine for harvest in Saskatchewan, and helping at an abattoir in British Columbia. My 5-month journey reinforced my dream of building a farm selling ecological meats directly from the farm. When I returned home, I got right to work growing my business! I operate Dawn Farm alongside my family's farm and am the seventh generation to farm in the Elgin County area.

What I Believe In:

  • Building a personal connection with every one of my customers! I want you to know the face of the farmer behind your food.

  • Practicing ecological, regenerative agriculture. Like all farmers, I am a steward of the land. I constantly strive to improve my practices to sequester more carbon, reduce emissions, and build soil health.

  • Taste - delicious, nutritious foods fresh from the farm

  • Growing local food. There is nothing better than eating food that was grown in your community by someone you know.

  • Educating - I am happy to answer any questions you have about my operation, or farming in general. I certainly don’t know everything about agriculture, but I am continuously learning and well-connected in the industry so I will help you as best I can.

  • Smiling! I love to farm and want to share that love with you.

 

Thanks for joining me! I look forward to providing you with delicious, local, ecological meats. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or comments. I would love to hear from you!
