The farm is situated on 140 acres east of Winnipeg at the edge of the Boreal Plains region. The land is a mix of forest dominated by Balsam Poplar, Jack Pine, and Black Spruce trees. Most of the farm is not cultivated, making it a perfect habitat for deer, coyotes, beaver, squirrels and many different species of birds. Cooks Creek runs through the property and much of the land is a thriving wetland - welcoming to Sand Cranes, downy woodpeckers, swallows, Canada goose, hummingbirds and cedar waxwings.

The farm has 10 acres of overgrown pasture land that was once used for cattle and horses. We plan to restore this area back to pasture by using an rotational grazing system for our pigs, chickens and sheep. 

Long Way Homestead currently has laying hens, a small flock of Shetland Sheep and a llama. In the summer we raise chickens and heritage breed pigs. In the fall we sell our pastured poultry and pork direct from the farm. We also are working towards producing a line of Manitoba-made yarn and fibre from our flock. As guiding values for how we treat our animals on the farm we strive for:

  • Providing access to fresh seasonal vegetation for all our animals. (Pasture Raised)
  • No growth hormones or antibiotics
  • We source our grain locally and avoid known GMO grains
  • Use permaculture principles in all we do on the farm

We also sell our pastured poultry and pork as farm gate sales in the summer and fall. To pre-order for 2017 please fill out the form below:
