Getaway Farm, Canning
Located on North Mountain with scenic views of the Bay of Fundy Getaway Farm is practicing agriculture in a truly new and exciting way. Getaway raises beef on an exclusively grass-fed diet. This means that the cattle is on pasture in the summer and healthy mix of hay and silage through the winter. Grass fed beef tends to grow slower than grain fed beef, and as a result there are much higher levels of heart healthy Omega 3 fats, and a much better flavour in the meat. Getaway Farm beef and other meats can be found at the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market six days a week as well as at the Highland Drive Storehouse on Kay St. in the Hydrostone Market. FarmWorks is thrilled to be working with a farm that is dedicated the concepts of local and sustainable agriculture and economy.
