Life in the Holland Marsh

Stephen Uhraney


The Holland Marsh, in Bradford, Ontario, is an agricultural area that mainly produces onions, celery, and carrots. It became fertile, workable land after the creation of a canal drained its 7,000 acres. A community of farmers and seasonal field workers plant, maintain, and harvest crops from early spring until late fall. Life in the marsh is as diverse as the people who work it and the crops it yields, which Uhraney documents in this work.
