Good Land Farms is a small, family farm.  We are located in Parkland County, just outside of Edmonton.

What started off as a hobby and a way to feed our family, has now naturally evolved into a desire to share what we love with our community. We aim to build a healthier and happier future for our growing children and grandchildren. Our farm operates with a holistic approach. As much as possible, we look to improve our soil health, provide a happy healthy environment for our animals, utilize the resources on our land, incorporate sustainability where we can and avoid over farming our fields.

We will meet you at our latest venture, “The Garden Venue.” Here you will find a variety of spaces that provide a unique, tranquil outdoor experience for you to enjoy. The garden, trees, and flowers make for gorgeous pictures and stunning settings that rejuvenate the soul and connection to Mother Nature. It is designed to allow you to get lost as you discover different spaces – we like to call it “gently wild.”

Experiences:
You are welcome to wander on your own and leisurely explore the Garden Venue, you can even have a picnic by bringing your own packed lunch and blanket. The Marquee tent is where you will find the flower bar, our products for sale, and tables and chairs for you to eat, drink and relax at your convenience. The Circle is a sacred space for ceremonies only, you are welcome to sit and relax. Our garden is ever evolving with seasonal vegetables and flowers. The Dome is cozy and grand at the same time – this is where you will go for the Sound Bath by one of our 3 holistic practitioners, Thelma, Kailee and Liv. The Pergola is where you can imagine siting down to an intimate long table Farm to Table dinner. The tables and benches are there for you to enjoy your picnic. Most important, we have 7 full private bathrooms for your convenience by the Marquee tent.
