With lots of stuff being really tough to get across the borders and the dollar right now, I am always looking to source within Canada. Well, and I like to support Canadians!

Anyways, I figured maybe we start a thread sharing what we do/produce/sell & where.

I'll start:

Prairie Tough Farms (Alberta)
Herbs and flowers mostly. Check it out at http://prairietough.ca
I am looking into adding seeds this year and some other "winter" products. I will update when I am ready to announce.

Your turn!

I don't have a business or website really. But I usually have some farm stuff kicking around.

Fresh eggs mainly.
Yearling calves ready for grass or younger if that's what people are interested in.
Sometimes heifers that may make good homestead/milk cows.
One day I'm hoping to be organized enough to have beef to sell in halves or quarters.

And I'm located in Central Alberta for ease of Alberta access

My primary crop at the moment is Russian Garlic.

I have mostly my personal family veggy plots, But I'm hoping to begin the propagation of many other things this year. This season already I am seeding echinacea, and have transplanted some saskatoons from disturbed semi wild sites. In the future I will be creating a herbal/berry/wild plant nursery/permaculture farm/food forest in the next few years, which will focus on non irrigated non chemical, no till perennials grown as wildly as I can conceive. I don't have a website at this time.

Dunster, B.C. (1.5 hours West of Jasper Alberta; 2.5 hours East of Prince George B.C.)

On our farm we sell veggies, seeds, meat (on the hoof) and eggs to friends. Not a lot, but enough to get a tax break on the property and to have the farming pay for itself. Mostly we just do subsistence farming for ourselves.

I do however sell handspun yarn and other textile crafts on my etsy shop. I'm moving my focus from fun yarns to luxury, quality yarns sourced locally.

We are in Surrey, BC, a suburb of Vancouver, and we raise ducks on the 7 acre property we live on. We are partnered with another small producer who raises heritage breed pigs on the same property. Both species are raised using feed which is 100% free from soy or GMO. The ducks also do not eat any corn.

We sell eggs for $8/dozen. Our partner sells whole or half hogs for $4/lb.

I'm in a tiny hamlet in southern Ontario. I have an Etsy shop where I sell vintage and handmade goods. I suspect what would be of most interest here are my soaps, although perhaps useful crocheted and knitted things, too. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/SmallbonesShop

Myself, I sell a variety of woodworking items from my small home-based hop in Northwestern Ontario.
Mainly kayak and canoe paddles but also hand carded spoons, hardwood cutting boards, cheese boards, wine racks etc.
