A number of years back we opted to stop allowing plastic water bottles on site. We do understand the importance of consuming water, we simply want our clients to allow us to provide water at no charge in ice-filled containers where they can serve themselves using paper cups (which we will make every effort to recyle). Our 2014 investment in updating our Drinking Water System has resulted in perfect water quality reports this year as mandated by the Health Unit and as tested to be pristine by Caduceon Labs 3 times each seaso  We have a perfect record for water quality.

Fields on West Lake is committed to the environment. We started by 'recycling' our circa 1860's buildings. We continue with careful reuse of our resources. For example although the main floor of our barn had to be replaced, we saved the flooring.  It is now found on the first floor of the barn in our admin office and on your way to Shirley's PDT.  The flooring served its purpose in agriculture for 150 years it continues to welcome you in 2020.

Our ongoing goal is to decrease our carbon foot print and to adopt sustainable operating methods wherever and whenever possible. In 2008 we decided to stop selling water in individual plastic bottles - in 2020 we are into our 6th year of clean electricity and will be increasing our commitment this year through a number of on farm plans - best to start at home we figured.

Sincerely
Mark Henry, Lynne Ellis and our families
