About MiKu Valley

We stumbled upon our farm name quite accidently, and it's simply a combination of our two first names MIchelle and KUrt and in honor of the small valley we live on the edge of. Later we were pleased to learn that "beautiful sky" describes our sunsets almost every evening. The rest of the translations are a bonus.

From Japanese 美 (mi) meaning "beautiful" combined with 空 (ku) meaning "sky" or 久 (ku) meaning "long time". It can also come from a nanori reading of 未来 (mirai) meaning "future". Other kanji combinations are possible as well.

 

A piece of Paradise:

MiKu Valley is a 68 acre (27 hectares) piece of paradise in rural Eastern Ontario, tucked a bit out of the way but just minutes from the villages of Lansdowne and Mallorytown. Our location is almost centered on the geologic axis of the Frontenac Arch. On the map we're between Toronto and Montreal and not that far from Ottawa. We're almost directly linked to the USA via the 1000 Island Bridge crossing about 10 minutes away.

 

Heavy clay soils and bald rock outcroppings characterize the heartland geography of the UNESCO Heritage Region we a small part of. Just minutes from the St. Lawrence River, regional, provincial and national parks; we are fortunate to live amongst abundant and diverse wildlife... Add a century+ double brick farmhouse, a wonderful old barn and traditional outbuildings.and these are many of the reasons we fell in love with this place - we hope you'll do the same.

 

Early days pave the way:

Both Mich and Kurt have a background that is interwoven with a country lifestyle. Mich has always been in love with animals and is college trained as an animal health technician. Her first job was identifying birds and wildlife in a mine tailings pond system in North West Quebec. She interned at and became manager of a private zoo in North Eastern Ontario. After meeting Kurt "at the zoo" they went to work at various wildlife and game farms in Ontario. When their son Nicolas arrived they settled in Guelph, Ontario. After a brief stint at Cambridge's African Lion Safari, Mich pursued a 22 year career with the Large Animal Clinic at the Ontario Veterinarian College (U of Guelph).  Kurt embarked on a community developement adventure that lasted more than fifteen years after obtaining a degree in Environmental Sciences, Rural Extension/Adult Education, International Developement and Politics at the University of Guelph. Much later he added a Permaculture Design Certificate to his education.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thousands of Years of History:

What we call MiKu Valley is on the traditional territory of the Anishnabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee ( Iroquois), Oneida and Haudenosaunee (St Lawrence Iroquois) peoples.


As settlers, we're privileged and grateful for the opportunity to reside here and we thank and honour all the generations of people who have taken care of this land - for thousands of years. Long before today there have been indigenous peoples who have made their homes and livihoods here and have been the stewards of this place since time immemorial. We recognize and deeply appreciate their present and historic connection to this place. We also recognize the contributions of Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples have made, both in shaping and strengthening this community in particular, and our province and country as a whole.


And as settlers, this recognition of both recent and historic contributions and importance of Indigenous peoples must also be clearly and overtly connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation Commision real in our communities, and in particular to bring justice for murdered and missing indigenous women, girls and the lost indigenous children across our country.
