Corn is in Season! Picked Daily!
Potatoes, Zucchini, Peaches, Tomatoes, Cucumbers also in Peak Season!
The fruits and vegetables we carry are direct from the farmer to you,from local farms in Ontario.
Buying local means that your fruits and vegetables are picked days of you buying them! This means that they will last longer and are picked when ripe; maintaining their flavour and freshness.
Fruits and vegetables that are not grown locally are picked before they are ripe so that they last the travel time it takes to get to you in store. Once in Canada they are sprayed with an artificial rippener (ethelyn gas). Some fruits have a wax coating added so they last longer on the travel time.
Many fruits and vegetables you find in supermarkets come from overseas, exposing the environment to greater CO2 emmissions. This is bad for the environment and the consumer (You) receives less nutritious foods, and less flavourful ones too!
Here at Strawberry Creek Farm, all of our fruit and vegetables, flower, baked goods, jams, preserves, honey and more are all grown in Ontario. We are proud to sell you our own produce as well as local, delicious foods.
