Brogan Carruther and Harrison Van Meekeren started Terra Tonics Farm with a dream to grow mushrooms. But, their evolution continues as they now produce seasonal mixed vegetables and microgreens in addition to their gourmet mushrooms.
Terra Tonics Farm is roughly 3 years old. They operate on about one-third of an acre. Both Harrison and Brogan have a combined farming experience of 11 years. Harrison’s background is in orchard management, and Brogan specializes in mixed vegetables. Brogan and Harrison are committed to growing without the use of chemicals and operate with a no-till system. They feed their soil using high quality fertilizer, made on-site, in a series of one thousand litre totes. The totes are filled with millions of worms which digest the compost.
Brogan and Harrison feel that there is nothing better than knowing you are feeding families. They love to hear about the recipes their products are used in. They enjoy seeing pictures of families making use of their vegetables. And, they love knowing that the food they grow fuels their customers in their day to day lives. Brogan shares that it is also fun to see what types of amendments, compost recipes, and watering amounts can increase production. Amature soil science and straight up luck play a huge role in their lives, and they find it humbling to be at the mercy of the maritime climate.
