Welcome To Our Farm
Arlee and Diane Sheets are fourth generation farmers working the same land Diane’s great-grandparents purchased in 1922. With an 80-acre maple sugar bush and 100 acres of tillable land, draft horses do most of the heavy lifting.
“We believe that wholesome food should be affordable. The more small farmers there are, the stronger our community,” says Arlee Sheets.
Rock-N-Horse Farm offers year-round Farm Harvest Shares. In the summer months, Rock-N-Horse Farm offers a Community Shared Agriculture program. Come winter, Rock-N-Horse is the place to visit in Mississippi Mills for an old fashioned sleigh ride!
