Farm Market

Our Farm Market

Return to simpler times – eat local and savour the flavour of the seasons with fresh from the field taste that just can’t be beat.

Each season is celebrated in our market. We feature our own as well as other locally grown fruits and vegetables. You can truly enjoy the abundance that Ontario family farms have to offer.

 

Bacon and EggsThere is nothing like the taste of a fresh egg.  Our laying hens produce free run, omega 3 eggs.

Our eggs are washed, candled and in the cooler for sale the same day they are laid.

Check out our freezers for pork, and chicken that we’ve produced or sourced locally that is humanely raised with no antibiotics or added hormones.  Our meat is available all season long.

 

Choose from a selection of our own homemade jams made from the fruits harvested from our fields.  We also have a great selection of preserves and relishes made by a number of other small Ontario family businesses.

mmm… try our pies. Baked fresh here on the farm!
