Welcome To Our Country Home!

We are a three generation family that left behind life in the big city to live the country dream. Since our move in 2011, we’ve striven to make ourselves more self-reliant and self-sufficient while embracing family-based living. Head over to About if you're interested in our story.

We are happy to share our bounty of real food! By real food, we mean food that is grown in a beyond-organic fashion. We use the methods of regenerative agriculture to work within nature's framework to grow nourishing food using an earth healing practices. At Shop you can learn what we have available now and what future offerings are in the works.

Grandma likes to write poetry from time to time and shares some of them in our Poetry Corner

We find pleasure in using locally grown or sourced ingredients in our food. Over time, we've come to favour particular recipes and have developed some of our own. We share these under the Recipes tab.

We hope you find Harrold Country Home a refreshing and honest site and choose to make it a place you visit often!
