Jessica Gerber

Jessica is the Treasurer for our Farm Fresh Ontario Board for the current year. Jessica lives and works on the family farm, Oakridge Acres, in Ayr, Ontario.

Oakridge is a 175 acre farm, raising natural, grass-finished, plains bison. Customers began to ask for local chicken and pork, in addition to the beef, that were drug-free.

Over the last five years, the store has grown to take over three rooms of the family farm-house to hold frozen meats (including local lamb, bison, emu, and fish), produce, eggs, cheese, dairy, and other locally-sourced fine foods. A kitchen was added in 2011 in an outer building to produce from-scratch meals and baked goods using local ingredients.
