Welcome to our Rural World
Get fresh, visit a farm! A continuing encouragement from our Ontario Farm Fresh Marketing Association. Our encouragement has been to connect with your rural roots- creating memories, creating traditions.
Traditions - They are what connect us all
Many of you have been visiting our farm for all 27 years that we have been located on Kennedy Rd. and some of you even longer having followed us up from our 14th and McCowan Rd location. Each year it seems we are reconnecting with friends, watching the kids grow and over the years come back with kids of their own. That is what makes this farm so special to us.
As with life there are bends in the road and we are at a turning point in ours. After 27 years here on Kennedy Rd. we have been given notice of termination of our lease.
This is our last season at our
Markham farm location
Winter will be busy moving everything up to our
Greenbank Farm where we will continue to be open for our strawberry, pumpkin and Christmas season traditions.
There will be other changes as well- we just haven't fully developed them. You will be able to see Dan at the Markham, Oshawa Centre and Whitby Farmers Markets along with his CSA. James is applying for the EG Farmers Market at Green Lane and Yonge St and there may be more. We will still be at the Markham Fair as well.
Join us for our Customer Appreciation Days
December 14th, 15th and 21st, 22nd.
Thanks for the Memories!
Share your memories with us. Drop in for a chat; bring a picture from your past visits on the farm. We are making a memory board of the farm and would love for you to contribute.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas. We hope to see you in Greenbank next year.
Jim, Leslie, the boys and all our staff thank you for being a part of our lives.
