2020 was a year. Yep. It certainly was.
He was sent here for us to love,
and I don’t know why.
It’s never been more clear that it’s less about us,
than it is about the way that we choose
to express our love for him.
Our lives, our mis-steps and omissions,
regrets and hopes, expectations and disappointments,
make his limbs tremble and his breath rasp.
Tears, rage, indifference, restraint, abandon—
each feel equally inadequate and intolerable,
when confronted with his innocence.
Oh, lamb of God,
who takest away the sins of the world,
be still thy heart.
He was sent here for us to love,
and i don’t know why.
It’s a fast-paced life now… and a huge change to the way we operate. We’ve posted our entire inventory—including three new flavours of lamb sausage!—to our new online shop at the Open Food Network: https://openfoodnetwork.ca/flat-earth-farm/shop
Here’s a few words that tell you why we’re with the Open Food Network:
…an online marketplace that levels the playing field. It’s transparent, so it creates real relationships. It’s open source, so it’s owned by everyone. It scales to regions and nations, so people start versions across the world.
It works everywhere. It changes everything.
We call it Open Food Network.
We all love food. Now we can love our food system too.
Along with the others in the Just Food Farm Stand Co-op, we’re concerned for the health of our eaters and ourselves, and responding to public safety concerns. But of course, at the same time, we have to get on with the job of adapting to changing circumstances and finding a way to continue to deliver essential services.
And this week we’re already ‘sold out’ with pre-orders for our Egg CSA! We also picked up our latest lamb from our local butcher this week—with lamb sausages (lambsages?) for the first time. We’re biased, so I won’t bore you with how much we like them.
We’re setting up an online farm stand, but for now you can order Flat Earth Farm products for—Sunday morning pick-up—by going here:
For your convenience, online orders are now available. Please follow this link, select the cuts that you would like to order, and we will contact you with payment, pick-up and delivery options.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The unseasonably chilly temperatures have lifted, that early snowfall—which last week looked to be sticking around—has all melted, and all of the animals have a renewed desire to enjoy the early morning sunshine… almost like they have a sense that this may be the last such opportunity for four months.
