We grow a wide variety of organic vegetables including greens, cabbage, tomatoes, dried beans, onions and garlic, potatoes and much, much more. During the late fall and winter, we often have storage vegetables (beets, carrots, winter squash, potatoes, onions, garlic) available.
We use seed from our own, saved stock or purchased from certified organic seed suppliers (as locally as possible) which are recognized as Open Source Seed Company Partners. No seed is genetically modified, patented, treated with pesticides or with fungicides.
When available, vegetables can be purchased at our farm gate store, through our weekly CSA (community supported agriculture) program or at the Perth Farmers’ Market (from May to October). See here for more details on where to buy our produce.
Our vegetables are certified organic by Pro-Cert Organic Systems under their Local Organic Program. We are inspected semi-annually by an accredited inspector who verifies that we are following the Canadian Organic Standards and only employing Permitted Substances. This third party verification of our practices is your assurance that we are delivering on our promise to only provide nutritious food grown in healthy, living soil and without chemicals or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Each year a portion of the garden is taken out of production and put into cover crops to nourish the soil and build a healthy, environment for next year’s crops.
The garden is a wonder of colour and smell throughout the season.
