Meet Your Farmers
Fresh Roots Farm is stewarded by Troy Stozek, Michelle Schram and our two kids: Syd and Sasha. We live on Treaty 1 Territory near Cartwright, MB, on a farmstead that was Michelle’s grandparents’. Our farm focuses on: the birds (laying hens), the bees and the bovines – all based on perennial pastures! We aim to use holistic and regenerative principles to work towards better soil health, healthy livestock, pollinators and habitat for other species. We feel passionate about selling our food directly to local families, and are proud of the quality of our products. We look forward to meeting you, and having you join our community of foodies!
What our community of Eaters is saying:
“We have been buying food from Fresh Roots Farm for as long as they have existed and can’t recommend it highly enough! The quality of the product is fantastic and I love supporting a farm that I know cares about the future of our planet and society. I especially love their Meat Share program as it is a great way to access the cost savings of bulk purchasing without the stress on your freezer or wallet.”
“I was fortunate to receive a jar of Fresh Roots Farm honey as a gift. I eat a LOT of honey and this is by far the most amazing tasting honey I have ever eaten. It has an incredible range of floral flavor notes and never seems too sweet. Absolutely wonderful!”
“We purchased a quarter grass-fed cow last summer and rave about the quality and outstanding taste of this meat to our friends and family. Will definitely be purchasing again. Troy and Michelle are friendly and organized. Great experience, and a way to spend your grocery dollars direct to a farmer!
