We are Jordan MacPhee and Catherine Bailey
We founded Maple Bloom Farm in 2015. We're a couple of Island-born-and-raised green thumbs with a passion for growing delicious and healthy food in harmony with the natural environment that we all share on PEI.
We met in 2010 while taking classes together at the University of Prince Edward Island and have been drawn together by our passion for nurturing living things, plants and animals alike, as well as our mutually weird sense of humour.
Jordan has been working on organic farms since 2010. He graduated from UPEI in 2017 with a BA in Political Science, Environmental Studies, and Philosophy. When he's not farming, Jordan is working with TopFeed.ca on developing software for farmers, reading up on philosophy or politics, volunteering with community groups, or playing guitar.
Catherine began farming the year our farm began in 2015. She graduated in 2014 with a BA in Psychology from UPEI. Catherine is a hobby painter, sketcher, and photographer, an avid adorer of all animals with a wicked case of Obsessive Chicken Disorder, and usually juggling half a dozen crochet or knitting projects.
Together we aim to build an environmentally responsible farm that builds a lasting community with our members toward a more sustainable Prince Edward Island.
We look forward to having you on board with us this growing season!
