Naked Oats In the field 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 family and for the communities around us. It means taking time to consider the needs of the land that we live on, one handful of dirt at a time.

  • It's a bumpy ride on the ancient (experienced) seeder, but it's finally time to tuck little oat seeds into their bed of soil and wait for the magic of things-that-grow 😊

  • I'm usually the first one to rant and rave about the delights of local eating, but on this frosty morning when even the hearty rhubarb refuses to poke it's head above the soil, i'm awefully thankful for cacao nibs, mangoes, and coconut from far-far-away 🤣

  • An ode to all things ugly and unappreciated on earth day: dreamy photos of new budding leaves, bright flowers pushing up through green grass and babies hugging trees...inspiring indeed...but let's not forget rotting logs and ant piles! If we are going to forge a way forward in the face of seemingly overwhelming human impact we need to be able to embrace it all, to see the role that each of us has to play, no matter how unglamorous it may seem. Do your thing, nasty little biting ants. I might keep some distance between me and your waist high nests...but please don't feel any less loved because of it 🐜💕

  • Checking on how our wee little shelterbelt trees fared the winter. 7 years after planting them, they are growing taller, but not always peeking up over the windswept grass. I am always so impatient to grow up and move forward, but I need to slow down and appreciate the fledgling stages as well, when trees have thorns but no fruit and are mostly hidden by the grass. Had the incredible opportunity to visit the barn from my Grandma's childhood farm over the weekend. The ladders she climbed and the hay lofts she played in. The maple trees that were just barely big enough for her to tap, now towering over the lane. I want to savour every step of the way.
