In May 2014, Chris, Glenda and Nigel began the ‘rescue mission’ of a 100-year old farm homestead located 2 hours southeast of Calgary.
The farm has been providing a wide variety of fresh produce and honey ever since!
The house was an Eaton catalogue special built in 1917. The homestead was surrendering to the wind-powered dust, sun-driven droughts and harsh winters.
The barn was older and the other outbuildings were sadly neglected, coming undone and rapidly turning back to dirt.
The 25 acres of land, covered with nature’s choice of weeds, revealed many large stones and much in the way of good top soil.
Tough beginnings as we hand watered and hauled water from the nearby canal.
The prairies offer a vast window into the universe at night, and the diverse, abundant wildlife and their songs.
We were captivated by the wide-open prairie landscape, the big quiet skies and sunsets.
"Livingston Farms has been providing my family with amazing, fresh and local vegetables every summer for four years now. Each week brings a variety of old favorites and new taste adventures; I always look forward to veggie pick-up day. The farm shares are well thought out, timely, plentiful, fresh, healthy, sustainabland delicious. We could not be happier with this service and are grateful for the hard work and care that the Livingston family puts into each plant."

Last year was my first introduction to Livingston Farms. I was tired of buying tasteless produce from the grocery store that rotted in my fridge only days later so, when I heard about this idea I was immediately interested. The veggies were great, in fact I still have some and its January!!! What I didn’t expect was how much fun my husband and I had picking up each weeks stash and then finding new recipes to use them up. We are looking forward to another year!

"We really enjoyed your fresh produce this past summer.
There was a nice variety, and it was great to know that the veggies had been picked the day before we received them.
Our friends and family really enjoyed the jars of your honey which we gave them at Christmas time!"
"Thanks for growing the freshest organic vegetables! The carrots are the most delectable I've ever had, and the spinach, herbs and garlic are yummy. God bless your hands for providing us with organic local veggies."
