Meet the Family
Henry grew up on a chicken farm outside of Cambridge, ON. Sarah grew up in the suburbs of Dallas. They met in university. After graduating and getting married, they worked at a theatre in Kitchener, ON for several years. Then, Sarah went back to school for her MA in English. Upon completion, she worked in fundraising and marketing while Henry wrote. In the winter of 2004, they had the opportunity to become partners in an education-based farm in the Kawartha Lakes - Russet House Farm (formerly Sun Run Centre). It was while working with the rare breed Kerry cattle there that we developed our love of cattle farming and grass-fed beef. In May 2007, our son was born. The following winter, an opportunity came up for us to purchase some certified Angus from one of our Amish neighbours. We couldn't pass up the chance to develop our dream, and so Field Sparrow Farms was born.
Now in our fourth year, our business has grown along with our family. We have loved attending farmers' markets and getting to know our customers. We try to respond to your requests, so please let us know if you are looking for anything unusual. We are also hoping to expand the meats we have available. Please stay tuned for updates. If you'd like to hear the latest in our news, please send us an email and ask to be added to our newsletter list.
P.S. Many thanks to Nathan Payne for the family picture. If you would like to see more of his work or get in touch with him, please let us know.
