Wille and Didi Curry live in a fieldstone home, built in 1864, on Pancake Hill, in Centre Hastings. They call their small farm Hill Top Pastures. Each summer they have people staying with them finding out what it is like to live on a small farm, and what it takes to actually grow your own food and to grow and deliver vegetables to the Quinte Organic Farmers’ Cooperative. This co-op sell produce in farmers’ markets in Toronto. Willie and Didi are concentration on growing a wide variety of lettuces all from organic and heritage seeds. To keep their organic certification they have to make sure the seed they use is from organic sources. Willie and Didi are keen to pass on knowledge about how to reduce the impact they have on the Earth and have recently installed a solar water heating with panels on the south facing roof of the work shop. They also collect rain water in barrels to irrigate the garden They employ young people as interns and WWOOFers (Willing Workers On Organic Farms), who work their board and keep as they travel around Canada, come and stay each summer.
