Starting a Farm in 2020 with Karri Munn-Venn

On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Karri Munn-Venn. Karri is the co-owner and head shepherd at Fermes Leystone Farms located on unceded Algonquin territory in west Québec. She shares this piece of paradise with her fabulous husband Trefor, two teenage sons, 10-year-old daughter, and city-dog Kaz. Off-farm, Karri works as a climate policy analyst with a national not-for-profit organization.

Leystone Farms was established in 2020 at the edge of the Gatineau hills. Clearly identifiable by the beautiful hillside vineyard, Leystone is also home to 10 varieties of chickens, a sweet flock of Southdown Babydoll sheep, Scottish Blackface/Valais Blacknose sheep, and their guardian llama Loretta.

Everything at Leystone is guided by a desire to nurture. We seek to nurture the land, the plants, and the animals, using sustainable, regenerative practices. It is also important that we nurture our family, our friends, ourselves, and our community. Everyone is welcome here.
