Cielo Farm is a small family farm perched on the beautiful hills overlooking Cavan, near Peterborough Ontario. Cielo means sky in Italian and the name was chosen for the massive amount of sky that surrounds the farm.
Owned and operated by two sisters, Janis Haugh and Debby Meisner, the farm produces organically grown heirloom vegetables and free-range eggs offered through a modified Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA).
We are new to farming but not new to gardening. Inspired by ecological principles, natural health and a love of good food we took a leap and decided to become farmers.
Our experience of eating in Italy triggered something for us. Only the freshest ingredients were prepared in the simplest way to enhance the natural flavour of the food. We experienced the connection between terroir and taste. This and our love and respect for the land and natural, organic ingredients started us on our farming adventure.
