About Norton Farms

Natural + Local = Sustainable

Norton Farms is a family run farm operating on the simple principles of

Natural + Local = Sustainable.

Started in 2013 by Ken Norton and his wife Yuka, in an effort to improve the quality and taste of the food they could feed to their family and share this food with their community.


Ken Norton is an entrepreneur and chef with local and international culinary experiences and influences, so food really means a lot to him. In his own words "good food is getting hard to find". The farm does not just produce one or two products like a typical farm, instead it operates more like a homestead and produces a multitude of crops and livestock which support each other.


Norton Farms pasture raises livestock including cattle, pigs, chicken, sheep, goats and ducks. We also work with other local farms and meat processors to source meats that are similarly humanly and ethically raised.


Our farm is nestled in the small hamlet of Hartford Ontario, just south of Brantford, north of Hagersville and east of Waterford. Our location offers us a peaceful setting in which to raise our children. We think "local first" and focus on family and community building.

Our philosophy is that farming practices should leave the soil, air, water, plant life, animals and people healthier – and happier. We are a proud micro farm (a.k.a. small family farm), farming under 100 acres.
