Welcome to Vibrant Acres

We are a colour farm growing and harvesting natural dyes from plants for fibre and craft

We grow and process a selection of vibrant natural dyes, including indigo. We also grow seasonal and heirloom cut flower blooms for market. It’s all done chemical-free and by hand in a way that builds soil and restores ecosystem health.

We’re a weekly cut flower vendor at the North Mountain Market in Harbourville, plus we’ll be popping up at fibre festivals across Nova Scotia in 2020. We hope you’ll stop by!

Creating Colour

Nothing beats the magic of the dye pot! Natural dyes are unmatched for the depth of colour and complexity they bring to a garment or textile. This almost lost tradition is making a comeback.

The Garden

We’re excited to be turning a rough patch of land into a beautiful garden farm inspired by the cottage gardens of old. It’s beginning to overflow with plants and flowers.
