In 2013, Endeavour’s Sustainable New Construction program undertook the building of a large farm building for Circle Organic Farm in Millbrook, Ontario.

The building included a 1,500 square foot vegetable processing area on the main floor (built with straw bale construction) and another 1,500 square feet of living area for farm workers and a farm office on the second floor (built with double stud framing and cellulose insulation). Adjoining this building is a 2,000 square foot buried root cellar. This root cellar was recently featured in a Trent University study about low-energy root cellar systems.

The building is now in its second year of use as the hub of operations at the busy farm, and is settling into the landscape comfortably.
