Vegan Micro Homesteading

(for a healthy plant-based lifestyle)

Hello and Welcome!

We are a small (.85 acre) homestead in SW Ontario.  We're learning as we grow and are inspired to share our journey with you.

A little about us...

John is a retired electrical engineer who loves to renovate and build.  He's also a QiGong and Therapeutic Touch practitioner.  He loves to work up the land and create magical yet functional spaces for us.  He's the strong, quiet, behind-the-scenes foundation for Milcoeur.

I'm Therese.  I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and love to be in front of a crowd.  So...I'm the face of Milcoeur.  I provide kitchen classes that include dairy-free cheese making and healthy vegan meals.

Here's what we're up to:

  • we have been whole food plant based for 17 years (give or take a year)

  • we love to grow our own food

  • we dehydrate, freeze and this year (2021) we're going to learn to pressure can

  • we make our own dairy free cheeses (smoked gouda, nacho, cheddar, mozzarella, and provolone flavoured)

  • on our homestead we currently grow:

    • grapes, raspberries, haskaps, hardy kiwi​, cherries, plums, apples, pears, paw paw, rhubarb, strawberries

    • eggplant, potatoes, zucchini, onions, leeks, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, peppers (many varieties), cucumbers, radish, lettuces, kale, Swiss chard, carrots, beets, celery, celeriac, garlic

    • basil, oregano, thyme, sage, dill, fennel, chives, rosemary


This is going to be a big year for us as we'll be adding a few more things to our property:

  • more fruit trees

  • currants and blackberries

  • a greenhouse
