Green Dragon Organic Farm & B&B

Green Dragon Organic Farm and B&B is a unique small-scale farm, just outside of Tatamagouche, on the North Shore of Nova Scotia. We combine traditional animal husbandry and an old-fashioned market garden which includes four passive solar greenhouses.

In our garden we emphasize handwork, specializing in over wintering hardy greens in order to have fresh produce available from March to December. Our intent is to be both self-sustaining and commercial, and to practice global stewardship.

We have been Certified Organic for a few years and became Certified Biodynamic in 2009.

The Biodynamic Farming Method, introduced by Rudolf Steiner in 1924, provides a holistic way to reform and shift values and methods towards a more sustainable and healthier future.

Organic and biodynamic are very similar; both are grown without chemicals and GMOs. However, biodynamic goes one step further. It is a holistic practice where all things are considered living inter-related systems - animals, plants, and the solar system. Biodynamic practices create healthier plants and heal the earth by replenishing the soil and adding vitality to the plant, soil and/or livestock.

We have also successfully completed a Permaculture Design Course and offer consultations.

Our variety of farm fresh products includes 50 kinds of vegetables, salad green mixes, venison, chevon and more, depending on the season and the sun.

We invite you to stay for a night or take a farm vacation in our comfortable, environment-friendly B & B. Our accommodation features a newly-renovated guest room with all natural materials and is a non-smoking, pet-free facility.

Green Dragon Organic Farm and B&B provides a living classroom experience in many aspects of small-scale food production and rural living. Stay tuned for updates on workshops and events at Green Dragon.
