Our Family Story
Daniel and Ashley Turner began farming in 2018, what started out as a few chickens and a few acres has quickly grown to over 300 acres of land and a growing operation of livestock. On the farm side they raise their cattle and pigs, but on the homestead side, Ash still raises her flock of laying hens and her Jersey cows to milk for their family. She also teaches monthly live sourdough classes to an expanding worldwide audience.
Turner Farm is nestled into the coastal countryside of rural Nova Scotia, with many wooded acres and rolling pastures dotted through out. The forests are filled with paddocks of heritage pigs, rooting and mud bathing and napping beneath the canopy of leaves above them. They feast on native grasses and roots. They need very little shelter here, even in the harsh winters, for the woods are densely populated with evergreens for the ultimate roof overhead.
