Kipling ridge farms

Kipling Ridge Farms is a small, family run diversified, ecological farming operation planning to provide a variety of meat and produce to customers throughout North-Eastern Ontario. The organization’s mission is to provide safe, healthy, ecological products to the local community while enhancing the farm’s soil and water for future generations. This will be accomplished through integrity, sincerity, and respect for all living things. To accomplish this mission, Kipling Ridge Farms must complete several infrastructure and equipment related investments in order to implement a viable business model, increase efficiency and effectively implement their production strategies.

Financing Need

To re-start the farm operation at a new location, Mulberry Moon applied to the Fair Finance Fund for capital to dig a new well, build a packhouse, and purchase equipment. The packhouse will enable the farm to store, wash, process and pack the vegetables and the equipment will optimize the growing, processing and selling of the produce.
