Aurora Mountain Farm is a small family farm in the Yukon. Our operation is very diversified. From handspinning, felting & fibre arts, wild crafted jam, jelly, marmalade & mustard, handmade soap, pastured pork & chicken, mobile abattoir services & assistance with on-farm slaughter to garlic & alfalfa mix hay.

Follow the links below for more details about this busy farm.



Fibre Art

During those long Yukon winter nights, we're busy turning cashmere, silk, angora, merino wool, mohair, and many other natural fibres into one-of-a-kind wearables, decorations and gifts. Find us seasonally at the Cranberry Fair, the 12 Days Market, and year-round at the Yukon Made Store in Shipyards Park.

Call or email to order your own custom felted cashmere and other luxury fibres scarf.

Hand-dyed yarn and roving, handspun yarn, hand-knit,woven, felted and stitched items, and drop spindle kits are available at the Yukon Made Store in Shipyards Park.

Custom spinning of pet fur or other fibres is available. Want to see what it might be like? For $20, I will wash, pick, card, spin and ply a 20 yard sample. If you decide you like it, the charge for additional spinning is $0.20 per yard for undyed 2-ply.


Fireweed Jelly Label

Wild Crafted Preserves

We make a wide selection of jam, jelly, marmalade & mustard from locally harvested herbs and berries: Yukon Cranberry, Rhubarb Saskatoon, and Mountain Blueberry Jam; Raspberry and Rhubarb Marmalade; Chokecherry, Yarrow, Dandelion, Highbush Cranberry, and our best seller - made with the Yukon's territorial flower - Fireweed Jelly.

Our preserves can be found at the 12 Days Market just before Christmas.

Goatmilk Soap

All our soap is made with olive oil, rendered fat from our own farm, and coconut oil along with goat milk. Goat milk is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals and is very nourishing for your skin.

Cold-processed soaps like these retain the glycerin that is naturally produced by the soap making process which results in a soap that is very gentle on your skin, lathers well and lasts a long time.

You can buy our handmade soap at the weekly summer Fireweed Community Market in Shipyards Park.

Pastured Pork

In the spring of 2009, three pigs joined the farm, Tasha, Boris and Fiona. Boris has been replaced by our Tamworth boar, Dolce and we've added Berkshires to the mix of Tamworth and Large English Black. Each year, we can expect several litters of lovely red and black piglets.

There is nothing that compares to the taste of pork raised outside with a varied diet. Our pigs enjoy peaches, tomatoes and other fruits and veggies as well as grass, hay, and a grain mixture made up of locally grown barley, oats or wheat with an organic protein concentrate.

Free-range, heritage breed pork by the side or whole. A deposit of $200/side is requested. You can come and pick it up at the farm, or we'll deliver for you to be cut and wrapped in town.

Give us a shout to see what is available.

Prepared Pork Products

We have expanded what we do to include a new line of gov't inspected pork products from our own heritage pigs. These are tried and true recipes that our own family has enjoyed for years. We mix all our own spices so no fillers or gluten.

Availalbe as a bulk box of 10 kg or by the package at the summer markets in Shipyards Park on Thursday, at Lorne Mtn Community Centre on Tuesday, at the 12 Days Market at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre just before Christmas, or year-round at Riverside Grocery.


Grass Finished Beef

We have gov't inspected beef in 50 pound boxes or by the package at the summer markets in Shipyards Park on Thursday or at Lorne Mtn Community Centre on Tuesday.

Pastured Chicken

Besides our certified organic laying flock, we also raise certified organic free-range chickens for meat. The chickens we raise do well on pasture and are a combination of several heritage meat breeds. We usually raise two batches a year which are butchered in mid-July and mid-August. Book early for your freezer as these sell out fast.

Butchering day helps build a strong sense of community as neighbours and farming friends get together to share in the work. Since our chicken is sold "farm gate", customers come out to the farm to pick up their orders. Many of our customers participate in butchering day to share in that sense of community as well as become more connected with where their food comes from.
