From Our Hands to Your Hands...

TapRoot Farms:
Making Sustainable Agriculture a Reality!

Our family and farm team grows delicious, nutritious, and ethically produced foods for you. The TapRoot Team comes to work each day on the farm at 1736 Church Street, Port Williams and 451 Canard Street, Lower Canard Nova Scotia.

What is a CSA Farm?

Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) is a local food option that enables shareholders to participate in a mutually beneficial relationship with farmers. In a CSA, share-holders purchase annual shares of the vegetables, fruit, meat or eggs grown or raised on the farm. Members or share-holders commit in advance of the growing season and then receive a weekly, bi weekly or monthly allocation of seasonal produce.

Who is TapRoot Farms?

Bishop/Oulton Family

Josh Oulton, Patricia Bishop, Izaak, Lily, and Frank--along with a fantastic farm crew--make up the family of TapRoot Farms.

Josh and Patricia grew up farming, and the commitment to agriculture instilled in them is now being passed on to their three children. Local farming is vital to our own personal health and that of our greater community. TapRoot Farms' commitment to the local food movement begins by providing fresh, delicious food to your homes. Our responsibility to the local food movement extends to being active in the community and welcoming you and your family to experience farming first hand.
