Naked Oats Harvest

Welcome to Adagio Acres.  We are an organic family farm in Manitoba. We love putting seeds in the ground, watching them grow, and sharing the harvest!   We believe that food should be a reminder and an excuse to slow down, to find a relaxed 'adagio' tempo that provides time for family, community, and the things that have real value to us.  A warm bowl of oats in the morning as the sun rises instead of a drive-through muffin, stirring up a bowl of cookies with our kids instead of reaching into a plastic package for a factory-shaped sugar-sphere.   For us, a slower tempo means re-imagining agriculture as a practice that makes sense for our family and for those around us.  It means taking time to consider the needs of the land that we live on, one handful of dirt at a time.

  • One bowl they say...but is it possible that yesterday's meal lineup (oatmeal for breakfast, steel cut oat salad for lunch, and granola bars to snack on) was overdoing it a bit?

    Naaaaah...

    Took a walk to see if our oats had sprouted after all the rain, and indeed they have! But oats are not the only thing alive and well...robins found a safe nesting spot between the teeth of the swather...and deer tracks meandering through our field suggest that the tender green oat shoots are tasty too!
