Harley Farms

Their Story

Harley Farms originated in East Kennett, England. Roger and Julie, together with their children James and Emily, used natural farming protocols to farm over 4,500 acres that included 2,500 breeding ewes and lambs, 1,000 head of fattening cattle, outdoor farrow to finish hogs, and also producing all their own winter supply of forage.

In 2000, they moved to Canada from the UK and in 2002 we purchased their present farms near Keene, Ontario where we started working on, and developing sustainability agricultural standards and protocols, that would work in Canada, to cover the sustainability of the environment, animal welfare and the financial well being of the farmer.

Their Mission

At Harley Farms, their goal is to produce livestock and crops in a way that aligns with the surrounding natural environment and with a special focus on animal and bird welfare. As a result, their customers can have confidence that Harley Farms products are fully traceable and come from livestock which are humanely and sustainably raised.

Their Approach

Their farming system is grounded in the belief that our animals should be raised as humanely and naturally as possible. As a result, their farm animals are kept together in family groups for most of their lives, which reduces their stress levels and supports their overall health. We also believe in maximizing the use of their pastures and forage crops, which allows the animals to subsist predominantly on the plants and crops they are meant to consume, thereby reducing our dependency on grains in their livestock finishing program.

We strive to provide their animals with as much fresh air and abundant space to roam as possible, preferring to shelter rather than confine them. Our Heritage Tamworth sows, for example, can be seen out in the fields year-round with their young. Even on the coldest, snowiest days, the pigs seem happiest outside as long as they have a dry and warm shelter to retreat to when they’re ready to come in.  We breed livestock best suited to the climate and surrounding environment and likely to thrive and fatten off a pasture and forage based diet.
