About The Funky Farm

The Funky Farm started out as a small hobby homestead project in 2012 located in Southern Ontario. Over the 5 years spent raising a family on the farm they have experienced a lot of homesteading fun with farm animals and a giant organic garden.
Life's path often reveals itself in interesting ways. After a few unanticipated life happenings, Christine and Justin soon realized the importance of slowing down and redirected their energies to where it mattered most: an even healthier lifestyle and more freedom for their family.
Wanting to reset the pace of their life, the Funky Farmers decided to relocate to Northern Ontario on the family's land. Christine & Justin searched far and wide for every different type of living arrangement that would suit their needs as they land on the land. They needed something that could be big enough for an entire family plus pets and it needed to be transportable because the land is fully forested and needs some clearing before they can fully settle at their desired location.
Yurts quickly became the obvious answer to all of their questions. First of all, the yurts from Groovy Yurts were too beautiful to forget about, plus the natural efficiency of the yurt made sense considering they would be relocating to an even colder climate ( -40 degrees celsius at times in the winter). Also, they loved how they could get so much space in a round yurt compared to a rectangular tiny house on wheels or shipping container home. Financially, the price per square foot couldn't compare to other types of alternative off grid housing. And to top it all off, yurts are nomadic and a Groovy Yurts required no tools, screws or nails to set it up !
So the Funky Farm met with Groovy Yurts the long weekend of May 2016. After seeing a yurt standing strongly before them, Christine & Justin knew that living in a Groovy Yurt was something on the bucket list & they were not going to wait for their retirement years to do it. After a weekend of learning everything about yurts and the company Groovy Yurts Inc., they fell in love with yurts and the company. Christine & Justin purchased a 26 ft diameter yurt June 2016. They had officially become home owners for the very first time !
The Next month would get very busy for them as Justin spends all his free time building the platform, and Christine purged and packed their belongings.
With a new pep under their step and with a great hunger for an adventure of re-wilding, The Funky Farm relocated to the small rural community in Northern Ontario July 2016. Their stockpile of adventures of landing on the land keeps growing as they break new earth pioneer style.
After experiencing all 4 seasons living semi off grid in their yurt, they are very thrilled and content with their yurt life.
With so much yurt love to go around, the Funky Farmers are proud to be Northern Ontario's Groovy Yurts Inc. Representatives.
