The Colour Farm

Member since 2021

The Colour Farm is owned and operated by Becky & Guy Porlier. Becky is the farmer and Guy is the handsome beekeeper behind The Colour Farm Apiary. Becky is deeply motivated by environmental regeneration. She studied anthropology in University and left a job in media relations to farm in 2010. But not owning a farm, led to a Masters Degree studying farming related activities and a series of farm-adjacent jobs that included a stint in Bhutan with organic farmers, research in Iqaluit on food security, many a farm internship and co-founding the Upper Canada Fibreshed, where she was the Executive Director for two years working with sheep and alpaca farmers. It was through this work that she found natural dyes and was encouraged to pursue a project with Colleen Lacourse and Michelle Fish – Milkweed Colour Farm. The culmination of all these paths led to (finally!) starting The Colour Farm in 2020, thanks to the best neighbours in the world renting her some land on a beautiful property in Callander.
