About us

The charlton family

Our farm story begins in 1862 with the initial purchase of 49.5 acres of land by James and Eliza Simpson. Over the years is has passed from generation to generation, and we have acquired a total of 325 acres. 

Now, we are fifth and sixth generation farmers in Brant County, Ontario, Canada. We milk 55 purebred, homebred holsteins on a DeLaval V300 robot. Additionally, we farm 400 acres (including rented land) of soybeans, alfalfa, corn and wheat. 

All four girls are involved in 4-H, showing their project animals at the local county fairs, as well as the Royal.

We can be found on Facebook @Elm Bend Farms, and Instagram @elm_bend_farms.
