Heather and Patrick met working at OWL Rafting in the beautiful Ottawa Valley. Their passions and interests vary, but their love of being outdoors, working with their hands, and eating delicious food led them to farming and baking. Together in Spring 2013 they started Heather’s Hearth and Little Trickle Farm.
Heather is the baker behind the bread, while Patrick helps with everything from building anything and everything needed for the farm and bakery, firing the oven, and getting the firewood ready.
We purchase all of our ingredients from local small businesses from Eastern Ontario.
All of the grain purchased for grinding is grown no further than a 150 km radius away from Ottawa.
