Welcome to Rock's End Farm!

Welcome to Rock’s End Farm, a small, family farm in Cantley, QC. 

We’ve recently welcomed home a flock of beautiful, hearty, hardy, top-quality, tri-purpose, purebred and certified organic Icelandic sheep. Our adventure of raising gourmet Icelandic lamb, beautiful Icelandic wool fibres, and eventually, Icelandic breeding stock is just beginning.

We are situated on an absolutely stunning piece of land – just 15 minutes from Ottawa, backing onto one of the region’s finest cross-country ski clubs, and blessed with natural woodlots, a whispering creek, heritage buildings, and more than enough healthy, arable acreage to meet our needs.

We moved here in 2010, and in our first season we started a new vegetable garden, grew a lovely flock of laying hens, and stocked our freezer with pork and chicken that we raised and slaughtered ourselves. We perimeter fenced 10 acres, looking forward to a time when we’d be ready and able to add more animals to the farm.

In addition to welcoming home our sheep, this season we have also added to our flock of laying hens, grown another batch of chickens for our freezer, we're raising some more pork, and let’s not forget that vegetable garden.

It has been more than enough to keep us busy….
