Rooted in Community: Small Mixed Farm Tour with Ferme Fiola Farm – RECORDING COMING SOON


April 10 | 2pm CDT (Winnipeg time)

Join Christel Lanthier and Joey Fiola, of Ferme Fiola Farm, over at our community space on Zoom for a farm tour! What started out as a hay farm now has a small acreage of ancient grains, oats, chickens and dual purpose sheep. The farm works in a full circle as much as possible. Currently, they are less than a week away from lambing, and a few weeks from seeding. Christel & Joey share, “We see this spring melt as full of potential and we’re excited to show you what we have planned for this year, answer any questions you might have about us and hangout.”

By donation. Pay what you are able. 10% of proceeds to local causes (to be listed soon). The remainder to teachers/hosts/organizers. To those who are unable to contribute financially at this time, or must pay at the lower end, know that you are contributing with your presence in the community. We need each other. To those who are able to pay more, thank you for supporting your local farmers, producers, makers, and community members, many who need your support now more than ever! Whether you pay nothing or the highest level, you are appreciated and welcome.

*Note that the tour itself will be pre-recorded due to insufficient internet to wander the farm live. Christel & Joey will be on live to answer questions and hang-out!

If you’d rather donate via eTransfer, please contact us.

Fiola farm operates on the 120-acre Fiola family homestead, located in the Franco-Manitoban community of Ste-Geneviève. They currently sell direct market; pasture raised lamb and wool products, pasture-raised chicken, hay and straw in small square bales and some grains (oats and some ancient gains).

Currently, their flock consists of 25 breeding ewes. The majority of their ewes are Rideau Arcott with some Shetland, Rambouillet and Romney crosses. As stewards of the land, they want to ensure that the land will be healthy for generations to come. It is in this spirit that each decision they make is based on four key values: earth-friendly, sustainability, respect, use what nature has to offer.
