Heart + Soil

Farmers and home gardeners in Labrador share the heart and soil beneath what they grow.

Darren Dinsmore: “I absolutely love producing beef”

Darren Dinsmore has a passion for cattle. He’s been a beef farmer for the past three years, located along the North West River road just near the edge of the Happy Valley-Goose Bay town borders. Frankie Leonard, a 2020 summer student with the Labrador Institute, asked Darren a few questions about his experiences with farming in Labrador.

Ren Simms: “I enjoy getting my hands dirty”

With a beautifully divided garden and a great greenhouse for corn, Ren Simms is able to grow all the staple Newfoundland and Labrador crops and more. He has been gardening for over 20 years, and enjoys sharing his delicious produce with friends and family, especially his grandchildren when they come and visit. In fact, Ren gives away a lot of what he grows.
