Graham Creek Farm is an ecologically sustainable and friendly 40 acre family farm in Clarington, with a rich historical and agricultural background split between pasture, cropping, ponds and managed forests.
In 2010 our family bought an additional 50 acre forested property approximately 3 kilometers away from our homestead. We have proudly owned and operated our farm for almost 3 decades and pride ourselves on taking excellent care of our livestock and the resources of our land, which includes raising our animals in a pasture-based system, free of antibiotics, hormones and chemicals.
Pasture-based systems and rotational grazing allow our animals to roam freely outside, have access to clean fresh water, eat nutritious grasses and other plants their bodies are adapt to digest. Pasture based systems improve the welfare of animals, reduce environmental damages and produce tastier meats.

We are members of various farming regulatory bodies, such as the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Ontario Farm Fresh, Durham Farm Fresh, Ontario Sheep Marketing Board, Provincial Premises Registry ID Number and the Durham Farmers County Co-operative.
Our livestock’s welfare is our top priority at the farm and we have extensive fencing and guardian dogs for predator control. We attend workshops to improve and sustain our farms future and develop best management practices such as a Nutrient Management Strategy, Environmental Farm Plan, Sheep Biosecurity, and Cleaning and Sanitizing Food Safety.
