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, free-range eggs and chickens offered through local farmers' markets.


We are inspired by ecological principles, natural health and a love of good food.


Our experience of eating in Italy several years ago 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 informs our farming philosophy.
