Padgeberry Farm, run by Ross and Edie Batstone, is up for sale. The farm is 58 acres in size, 35 minutes from Ottawa in Osgoode, and includes a 4-bedroom house and various out-buildings. Padgeberry farm has been certified organic for the past 18 years and is currently being recertified for this growing season.
Ross Batstone and Padgeberry Farm have been an important part of the organic community in Ottawa (particularly the Organic Farmers Market) and will be sorely missed. I wish the Batstones well on their new endeavours, and I hope that the farm is bought by someone keen to keep the organic certification and eager to sell to the local community. If you are interested in this unique green real estate opportunity, contact Ross:
