1959

A new home base

The family and seed business moves to our current home outside of Dundas Ontario.

Late 1960s

2000

Organic seed is added to the catalogue

The first shipment of certified organic seed arrives in house from Italy in December 1999.

Order Shipping Update

Please take note: Orders are being shipped about 20 business days after placement. We are unable to accommodate Rush orders at this time and are fulfilling orders based on placement date. 

We understand that growing food and food security is on the minds of Canadians at this moment.  We thank you for your orders and we are doing are best to serve our community.

The Covid-19 Crisis has resulted in an unprecedented level of orders being placed.   This has caused a backlog in our systems. We are currently working very hard to package more seed from our bulk supplies to fulfill orders, but this does take time. Thank-you for your patience!

Please note our retail store is temporarily closed at this time and we have suspended all pick up orders. 

New this season!

Why do we trial?

We maintain trial plots so that we can be familiar with the products we sell, try out new seed varieties against proven varieties, and understand the challenges sustainable production methods present such as insect control or weed suppression.
