We are passionate about farming

Here at Lindsay Lake Farms our farming practices are a comprehensive blend of diverse subdivisions such as livestock, blueberry crops and forestry. We believe in the profound connection between the land and the food it yields. Our commitment to sustainable and responsible farming practices is the cornerstone of our philosophy. We treat our land and the animals we care for, not as a resource to be exploited, but as a partner to be nurtured. Our dedication to quality, freshness, and taste is evident in every harvest.

With wild fires on the rise, fire mitigation becomes very important to prevent and contain the spread of wild fires in order to protect the forest. Our specialized equipment ensures that fire mitigation lines can be created with maximum efficiency.

Subsistence Forestry

As a forward -thinking approach in the sustainable use of our forest, we practice subsistence forestry on our farm:

  • By utilizing the wood from our own forest for our sawmill, we´re able to create a closed-loop system that fulfills our own building needs. This approach minimizes the need for external resources, reducing environmental impact.
  • The material generated from thinning the forest is processed into firewood. By producing wood chips, we obtain fuel for our heating systems, which we use to heat the farm buildings. This creates a self-contained value cycle.

The Forest as an Important Recreational Factor

We understand that the forest is not only a valuable economic factor but also an indispensable place for recreation. It provides space for relaxation, exercise, and nature experiences. Therefore, it is our special concern to preserve and protect the forest as a habitat for flora, fauna, and people. Our mission is to preserve the treasures of the forest so that future generations can enjoy them as well.

Meet the Clydesdale Horses

We proudly present our valuable breeding group consisting of three impressive mares (Muhlengut Voldagsen Ivy, Terrytime Bacardi´s Eve and Terrytime Excel´s Cassandra) and our newest addition, an impressive stallion (Willow Way Lennox). These four now form the heart of our ambitious Clydesdale breeding program. Our mares, already impressive for their grace and strength, bring with them an impressive pedigree. Their gentleness and smart natures make them valuable members of our equine family. Each of them carries unique traits that we specifically seek to preserve and develop in our breeding program.

The latest addition to our herd, our imposing stallion Willow Way Lennox, brings with him an impressive combination of strength, stamina and elegance. His noble nature and remarkable genes make him a promising foundation for the future of our stud. Together, these four majestic animals form an ensemble that reflects our passion and dedication for breeding the stunning Clydesdales. We firmly believe that this group will set new standards of quality and excellence. The coming years promise exciting developments and promising offspring, and we look forward to sharing our passion and commitment to these wonderful animals with other enthusiasts. Breeding Clydesdale is more than just a business, it is an affair of the heart.

It took a century for the Scottish to breed the Clydesdale into a workhorse so perfect it changed the course of history. In 1911 one highly prized stallion sold for the equivalent today of one million pounds (2 million Canadian dollars) – a record that is still unbroken.

Clydesdale horses were so valuable thousands were exported from Scotland to countries around the world including Australia, Russia, the United States and Canada. These extraordinary horses drove the agricultural and industrial revolutions, fought in the First World War and influenced the design of horse-powered machinery and vehicles.

In the United States they became famous as the Budweiser horses. In Canada they helped open up the Prairies and in the United Kingdom they became a royal horse.

Superfood Wild Blueberries

Wild Blueberries, native to North America, grow naturally in the fields and rocky hills for thousands of years already. You can´t plant them. They are associated with numerous health benefits and an exceptional flavour. A daily serving of about 40 g is enough to ensure you make use of these benefits like Heart Health, Blood Sugar Regulation, Brain Health.

  • Nutritional Powerhouse: Wild blueberries are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making them a valuable addition to a healthy diet.
  • Environmental Benefits: Wild blueberry fields serve as important habitats for various wildlife species and contribute to biodiversity.

We employ a combination of traditional and innovative techniques to ensure the quality and sustainability of our wild blueberry crops:

  • Low-Impact Farming: As they grow on their own it´s a low-maintenance crop with a two year crop cycle. So we just prune the fields every other year wih rotary mowers.
  • Crop Rotation: This practice helps maintain soil health and reduces the risk of diseases and pests.
  • Harvesting with Care: Our experienced team hand-harvests the berries to ensure the highest quality and minimal impact on the plants.
