Dalew Farms is owned and operated by Dave and Chantal Lewington and their children Caleb, Jacob, Olivia and Emma. Over that last several years our farm has transformed and flourished as we hope it will continue to do so with the help of our family! When Dave moved from Southern Ontario his focus was on raising lamb on a commodity basis. Once he realised there was much local demand for farm raised meat he started selling directly to consumers. He also added pastured pork, chicken and eggs to the mix and started growing some produce on the side for sale. Later on he met Chantal and the changes kept coming!!! Thanks to the influence of some friends we found out about CSA programs (Community Supported Agriculture) and started selling CSA produce shares. We went from just 25 shares to over 150 shares in just a few years! Somewhere in there we also started raising Grass-Fed Beef which we still proudly do today. As our family grew and lifestyle changed and Chantal went back to work part time off the farm we decided to make a drastic change. It was with much thought and consideration that we stopped selling produce, pork and eggs and added Dairy Goats instead!

We are currently members of the Ontario Dairy Goat Co-Operative. We do not sell our milk to the public but we encourage you to ask at your local grocery stores for more goat products! Goat milk is known for being easier to digest and it offers a wide variety of health benefits with very few of the negative side effects of drinking regular cow milk. Our milk is currently being processed by Woolwich Dairy, so look and ask for their brand! We will be selling some goat meat for freezer orders in the near future, please check on our online store for details. We are also members of the National Farmers Union which fights for the best interests of beginning farmers and small family farms, the Ecololgical Farmers of Ontario, the Creative Meats Abattoir Producer Group and the Eat Local Sudbury Co-operative. We are very passionate about small scale ecological agriculture and we work extremely hard to grow the healthiest and most nutritious food we can each season in and environmentally sustainable way while also supporting our local economy by patronising local suppliers. When we make decisions on our farm, the primary factor is: “Would we feel comfortable feeding this food to our own family?!” The answer to that question is YES! We are proud to say that this will be our 11th season at this location. We have gained a lot of experience over the years and we are confident in our ability to continue to produce foods of the finest quality while using sustainable methods.
