Liz Black wanted to feed her family healthy food and before she knew it, she was farming. That was 20 years ago.

Today, Goshen Farm (33433 Sider Road, Wainfleet) raises lambs as naturally as possible. They’re fed by their mother for their first two months, after which crushed grains, hay and pasture grass are introduced to their diet.

The lambs roam free, grow slowly, eat naturally and are drug free.

You can find Liz at the Port Colborne, Ridgeway and Grimsby Farmers Markets, or buy direct from Goshen Farm.
