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. It’s all done chemical-free and by hand in a way that builds soil and restores ecosystem health.

Getting started

Our Story

We traded our downtown balcony garden for a small farm in rural Nova Scotia. As Vibrant Acres has evolved, we have found ourselves excited to create in this area where nature and artistry meet.

Who we are

How We Farm

We grow our natural dyes with great care for the land, soil, and creatures who share our farm. Everything is grown chemical-free and by hand as part of a holistic farm ecosystem.
