Nature’s Harvest

This month we would like to introduce Nature’s Harvest, Nabiac in the Wingham Farmers Market Producer Profile. Nature’s Harvest has been operating a Market Garden growing seasonal unsprayed produce in Nabiac since 2007. At their weekend market stall they sell vegetable seedlings of heirloom varieties, a huge selection of potted culinary and medicinal herbs as well as garlic and salad mix, all grown on the farm and in their nursery. Their seedlings are grown in homemade ‘paper pots’ to reduce the number of plastic pots and punnets going to landfill. Melissa is affectionately known as the ‘paper pot lady’ at all the local Farmer’s Markets she attends. Melissa and Phil from Nature’s Harvest have said “The business was born from the desire to operate the farm in a way that enhanced the environment, provided food for our growing family and gave us the sense of ‘saving the world’ with a practical solution that would make a real difference but it was 15 years in the planning”.
