Four Seasons Farm is run by Owen and Sina. We bought Four Seasons Farm in 2012, after Owen’s parents started the business in 1992. We both live on the farm, Sina with her dog Hali, as well as Owen and his wife Moira, their daughter and son. Two cats, Red and Rocky, are also part of the farm family.
Up to eight people work during the main season on the farm. The crew contains some folks from away who want to deepen their knowledge about farming, but mostly of local people who are looking for regional employment. We offer workers the opportunity to rent land from us and cultivate their own vegetables, experiment, learn and sell their crops.
Currently we produce on about 6 acres of land and also have 9 greenhouses to extend our season in the spring and fall/winter. Our main focus is on a washed saladmix with over 50 different varieties of lettuce and greens. Besides that we produce nutrious shoots, culinary herbs and vegetables like garlic, onions, shallots, beets, cherry and heirloom tomatoes. More about our produce on our produce page.
Over the last few years we also incorporated fruit and nut trees into our production. And in 2019 we started to grow cut flowers to broaden our selection.
In 2020 we started a weekly salad box CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). If you are interested please check out our CSA page.
The farm is located in Selma, close to Maitland at the Bay of Fundy. Just about one hour from Halifax and thirty minutes from Truro. Tourists enjoy the area for adventurous tidal bore rafting and scenic drives and views.
