Who are we?
We are growers of heirloom tomatoes, peppers, vegetables and herbs, in Selkirk, Ontario. We offer bedding plants, perennials, produce, fresh and dried herbs, at the Port Colborne, Ridgeway and Simcoe farmers markets, sometimes other events in Southwestern Ontario, or directly from our gardens. Each spring we also have a sale at Fenwood Farm in Ancaster, near the May long weekend.
We will be shipping our bedding plants to addresses in Canada this year. Watch for details. Our plants can be ordered using the online shopping cart, then picked up and paid for at any of our farmer's markets, here at our farm, or other events we may be attending. We accept cash, Visa and Mastercard.
Our Seeds & Bedding Plants
As growers of heirloom tomatoes, heirloom peppers, and other heirloom vegetables we use only open pollinated varieties. This means you can save your seed and your plants will “come true to type” the next year; save the seeds from your best vegetables only and you will also be improving the variety. You may even catch the bug and end up developing your own smokin’ hot pepper or 3lb purple tomato!
By saving and replanting these old (sometimes ancient) varieties of seed you are helping to preserve the genetic diversity of our food supply.
We save seed from as many varieties as we can, especially the rarer ones, to ensure a reliable supply both now and for future generations.
Our bedding plants are carefully raised by hand with no artificial fertilizers or pesticides used. They are fully “hardened off” before we bring them to market, so all you have to do is take them home and plant them.
