Vendors - Johnson Farmers' Market Desbarats

Solid Oak Rocker
Amos and Betsy Weber and Family

Our large family includes 10 children and continues to grow as 5 of our children are married and raising families of their own. One daughter and her family is living in Southern Ontario but will soon be moving north to a farm down the road.  Having the extended family close is important to us.

A good size section of our farm is devoted to growing a large variety of vegetables that are sold fresh, or canned for those non growing winter months. You can find our produce at the local Farmers’ Market or Desbarats Country Produce or just stop by.

As a sideline to our farm, we have a hardwood furniture business specializing in solid wood furniture (oak, birch and maple). Son, Abram, has taken a special liking to the woodworking. Choose from our existing selection or provide your own custom order. Furniture is sold unfinished or finished .

No Sundays, Please.

Meadowview Alpaca Farm
Meadowview Alpaca Farm & Fibre Studio

At Meadowview Alpaca Farm, we focus on developing a quality breeding program for alpacas, marketing these animals as the alternative livestock of northern Ontario and developing the fibre processing and related value-added products with talented local artisans.

This luxurious hypo-allergenic fibre is second only to cashmere. Several times warmer than sheep’s wool, it is ideally suited to our cold winter climate. It is used to make unique and very soft, comfortable clothing. Imagine high-end garments in 22 natural colours, soft and warm, caressing your body. Functional, yet fashionable, these garments make you feel very special.

People raising alpacas have a variety of options when it comes to their fleece. Several custom mills in Canada welcome this fine fibre and process it into a variety of products, such as yarn, socks, blankets and more. The alpaca farmer then has the option of further transforming fine yarns into mitts, hats, shawls, slippers, duvets, and more.

Peter Sherk and Family

As a young family just starting out, my wife Marie and daughter rely heavily on help with marketing from our extended family. Our pickling cucumbers will be part of my father Enos Sherk’s table at the local Farmers’ Market or can be purchased through the Desbarats Country Produce Centre or directly from the farm in bushels and half bushel quantities.

In addition to our farm, I build portable storage/garden sheds in 8’x 8’, 8’x 10’ or 8’ x 12’ sizes suitable for storage of lawn tractors, ATV, lawn and gardening tools or easily adapted for a children’s play house. You will find these buildings to be great quality and competitively priced.
