McSmith's Organic Farm
42828 Shorlea Line, RR # 6 St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada N5P 3T1
The “McSmiths” have been farming organically since 1984. That’s when Gary Smith and Cathy McGregor-Smith became full-time organic farmers and “McSmiths” became their own clan. They embraced diversification, common on farms until recently when monoculture was promoted.
As pioneering organic farmers, they put a lot of themselves into the farm’s success and into promoting organic farming and the benefits of buying locally produced food. Daughters Janis and Lisa were born and, growing up, were an integral part of the McSmith’s family farm.
