Fletching Farms: A Summer Company Story

Fletching Farms is local small-scale farm in the Township of Asphodel-Norwood where the animals come first. Having raised animals for years, Zoe Burnett decided to turn her hobby into a business this summer with help from PED’s Summer Company program. Her passion for farming, along with the desire for a summer job that allowed her to work outside, is what ultimately led Zoe to pursue Fletching Farms as a business.

Fletching Farms provides ethically-raised pastured meats as well as chicken and quail eggs. Zoe believes Peterborough & the Kawarthas is a great place to be an entrepreneur in part because it “is such a friendly place” and support for young entrepreneurs can easily be accessed. Zoe credits Peterborough Economic Development for helping her turn her idea into a viable business and helping her get started as an entrepreneur. For Zoe, the Summer Company program allowed her to invest in more marketing to advertise Fletching Farms and ensured she could raise her animals in “a safe and happy environment.”

Zoe describes success as “fulfilling all of your goals and enjoying what you do at the same time.” She is working to achieve success on her own terms this summer with the support offered through Peterborough Economic Development’s Summer Company Program
