A field of organically-grown lettuce at MacWilliam Farms
At MacWilliam Farms we take pride in growing all our produce organically. This means we do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, but rely instead on crop rotations, crop residues (inedible parts of plants, such as corn stalks), animal manure, green manure (crops planted specifically to be returned to the soil) and biological pest control. This more natural approach avoids the negative effects that intensive, 'factory farming' has on the health of consumers, farmers, farms, and the environment in general.
Our broad selection of organically-grown produce includes:
~15 var. of tomatoes, ~8 var. of lettuce, ~8 var. of apples, asparagus, peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, beets, beans, zucchini, melons, potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, Swiss chard, and spinach.
To learn more about what we have available at a specific time of year, drop by the farm, visit our booth at one of our farmers' markets, or give us a call at: (905)836-9656.
Please note all our produce is grown at our farm; none is bought from the food terminal in Toronto.
