About Juniper Farm

Juniper Farm is a 200-acre, diversified, organic and biodynamic farm nestled in the Gatineau Hills, minutes away from the village of Wakefield, Quebec.

Juniper Farm comprises a diverse landscape of annual vegetable gardens, perennial beds, animal pasture, beehives, forested woodlands, meadows, ravines, wetlands and streams. This particular farmland has seen many incarnations of informal organic agriculture throughout generations, before being purchased and established in 2010 by Juniper Turgeon and Alex Mackay-Smith. Prior to that, the two farmers had established Juniper Farm on another smaller parcel of land in 2006.

Both Juniper and Alex approach farming from an organic and biodynamic perspective: based on enlivening relationships between humans and the earth, while transforming the practice and culture of agriculture to renew the vitality of the earth, the integrity of our food, and the health and wholeness of our communities.

At Juniper Farm we serve our greater community by growing vegetables, fruit, meat, and eggs. We sell through multiple venues (restaurants, farmstore, retailers), create our fermented foods line, and offer experiences and connection to the farm through various events, dinners, festivals, workshops, and artistic partnerships.
